Wall Street Prep Course

CFA washington DC is offering a 3 day course next week, http://www.cfasociety.org/washingtondc/Lists/Events%20Calendar/DispForm.aspx?ID=122 Has anyone taken it? Is it worth it? Its very expensive but i am considering it. Any feedback would be very appreciated. Thanks

youre gonna spend $1700 on a training program when you can purchase the materials yourself for something like $300 and learn on your own?

thats what im asking - is the program worth it? has anyone taken it? why do the program if its avalible for self study? etc. I figure theres some benefit (other than networking), but id like to see if anyone has taken it.
