Does anyone have an opinion on Rick Groszkiewiecz's 2A seminars? I'm going to one this fall and I've heard he's pretty good, but I was just wondering what the general consensus is on him.

When you return, please tell us how to pronounce his name.

Rick's seminar's are excellent. In my opinion, his materials are the best out there.
IMO Rick's 2A seminar is much more helpful than his 2B seminar. Since his "day job" is writing software that is based largely on 2A material, he's got a good grasp of the ins and outs of the material. Plus, he's been teaching these seminars for years and years.
His step-by-step approach to calculating max deductible, for example, helped me pass on the first try.
Also, I keep his materials at my desk and refer to them from time to time on the job.
He's no Carmody, but the 2A material is much more applicable, and hopefully familiar, than Courses 5 and 6. (for pension folks)
I've never tried the other EA guy, Farber, so I can offer no comparison there.

I haven't tried Farber either, so to be fair to him I really have no basis for comparison either.

Just got back from his seminar. It was very helpful.
For several problem types, he has better approaches than I've seen elsewhere, especially 'max deductible' and 'ara' material. He also gives decent historical background without overkill.

Update - I just completed Rick's seminar yesterday. He was very good and his materials are top notch. I am, however, feeling slightly brain-dead at this point. I would recommend his 2A seminar to anyone.

I have been to his EA2B seminar and passed on my first attempt. This is my first sitting for 2A and his seminar has given me the ability to pass the 2002 exam last night.
