From a 30-year teacher of security and investigations:
WORST possible study methods:
1) seminars, and 2) studying with multiple-choice questions
(low retention percentage, too many words per actual needed knowledge)
BEST possible study method:
reading Question/Answer, Question/Answer, Question/Answer, . . .
(direct to memory, higher word priority)

out same-day money order is received and processed,
2. Send a check, but
we put long holds on
orders paid by check.<<< don't miss this,
3. From 1990 through 2021, we took credit cards,
electronic payments, PayPal, Western Union, etc.
We're tired of the 'bad numbers', the delays,
the 'bank mistakes', the excuses, 'its my wife's fault', and so on.
We make too little on these packages for such headaches.
unless we are to raise our prices, if you can't come in to
a package then there's only one way to send a shipment to you
if you need it faster then by sending payment by regular mail:
you simply overnight us a money order. It doesn't have to be a costly and
time-consuming one issued by a bank-- a grocery store or 7-11 money order is fine.
