>> All advice will be greatly appreciated.

You don't need them if you are capable of taking econometircs at San
Diego. I have examined the material and in my opinion not really worth
your time or money. That was about 3 years ago. If you can't or don't
like to figure out things on your own, then the netcourses might be
just the thing for you.

Regards,

Mark
