I purchased the “full package” a couple of years ago and also got the hotline support. I used it 2 or 3 times. It was helpful for getting help on the deals that I discussed with them. It was also nice knowing that help was just a phone call away.
As I was starting out, I found that I could also get tons of free help here. There are many experienced investors who helped me along the way as I got started.
The nice thing about the hotline is that you know that you can talk to a live person on the phone, and as new questions pop into your head, you can ask them. You can also get quick clarity on something you don’t quite understand by asking them to explain in greater detail what they are talking about while on the phone with them. Sometimes, in this discussion board forum, you don’t always get the quickest or most complete reply to your questions. On the other hand, you are able to pick the brains of a large number of professional and part time investors here.
I guess my recommendation would be to simply think about how each forum is handled, then decide which suits your particular way of learning. Good luck!
