Rising Star 2009 SGT Exam preparation course.


Guys. These questions are not just dificult. They are reGodDamnDiculously dificult. The purpose of the RisingStar people was not to prepare us for the test, but simply to show off and demonstrate their ability to create dificult questions. My average on P.A. questions and on ExamX questions is 81, with Risingstar I am lucky if I get 65. These questions do not help prepare you for the test, they just confuse the f@#$ out of you and leave you mad and confused beyond imagination.

I am very concerned by the fact that the RisingStar people have not commented on my previous statement. Well, here is another one: Questions for section 205, question #6, according to you, the correct answer (the "BAD" choice) is C, but it is not!!!! In this case the precinct in question IS the Designated precinct, therefore the action discribed in C would be CORRECT!!! You made these questions so retardedly (I know it's not a word) difficult and confusing, that you yourselves can't even provide the correct answers for them. But you had no problems charging us $300 for this crap.

The RS questions are known to be tough. If you can get a decent score on their questions then you know you are ready for anything they throw at you on the test.

Part of the RS philosophy is to ask for the incorrect answer, that way, with each question, you get 3 correct statements and only 1 incorrect statement, thereby reinforcing the "correct statements."  Rising Star is not for everyone, you need to serious about passing...you also need basic reading comprehension skills.  These guys are legitimate PG buffs, in speaking with them and going through the RS program.  The whole idea for me studying was not to pass the test, but to be #1 on the list!

rob, good answer. Rising Star like all the other schools, has it's mission and teaching points that don't agree with everyone's study habits and abilities. From experience in using them, I can tell you they are by far the best questions out there. Just like the real exam, Rising Star will throw ground ball easy questions at you, followed by questions that will make you pull your hair out and throw stuff. Either way, that's the way the real test is. The format and structure of their questions is almost identical to the DCAS questions, with one hitch: Rising Star almost always asks you for the INCORRECT answer - for a very good reason. Why you ask? So that when you read over 1,000 of their questions, you are actually studying/reviewing and reinforcing GOOD & CORRECT information in 3 of their answer choices. Do the math, 3 good statements X 1,000+ questions = a lot of reading correct information. I don't know about you, but when I study and read questions, the last thing I want to do is constantly read BAD information in answer choices that could stick in my head! Rising Star has good solid questions and sound teaching principles. I'll tell you what else, when I got one of there questions wrong, I knew that I would never let that happen on the real exam (exactly what you want out of a question). I especially appreciated getting their nit-picky questions wrong, because it brought out or showed me something that I totally glossed over and missed in my reading. If you get 70% or better of their questions right, you can be assured that you'll be at the top. The ones you get wrong are the ones that will teach you something you missed. If you want 100% easy questions that will falsely build your confidence and teach you nothing, then use the other schools. Like I said though, you have to find what works for you individually. That's what is so great about having more than one school out there to use. Rising Star worked for me and many other "hard-core" study buffs I know that weren't looking to half-ass it.
