Don't waste your $ on Karen McDermott's CSET classes Hi all, Sorry to disagree with some of the posts regarding Karen McDermott's CSET class.. but I would hate for anyone to waste their money. - She runs an unprofessional class-- (she actually made fun of two of the four classmembers behind their backs to me!) It really made me wonder what she said about me when I looked the other way. -She then proceeded to fill us in on her personal life, how her Dad was dying back East, but she did not feel she should give up her cheap apartment (and trust me-- it must be cheap), and that she shouldn't have to put up with her Mother. -Her apartment was very, very hot. And I was at many sessions! -She only provided two seats that had a place to write, I was not fortunate enough to have one of those seats! -One girl had babysitting problems and Karen not only commented on how it was her loss.. but later come to find out she never returned the girls emails asking if she could come to later sessions to make up for the lost money she had paid Karen. -Her study guide was nothing out of the ordinary.. she merely read it. -One class she was not prepared with any print outs and said she would be going to a copy store during our 1/2 hour break to make copies.. she never ended up doing that. -Anyhow, I would try a self help group before going back to her. After I pass the next test-- I will let you know how it goes.
