I’m currently taking the courses; I just finished D@DG and have to take the in person lab. What should I be expecting? I’m traveling from Indiana to Carlsbad, so it’d be a pretty expensive mistake to not be prepared.

Distance education is ideal for me. I also read from people that Colored Stones is best taken in person. My past student loans are in default, so paying out of pocket course-by-course is really my only option right now.

I was also considering taking the NAJA appraisal courses before tackling gems. I spoke to them and was told this could easily be done before completing a full GG, but to complete Colored Stones regardless.

Anyone with experience have advice on what to expect?

Thanx!
