So everything costs something, and paying for whatever course or book you're interested in learning from is the price of admission.
Which in no way means that AWAI isn't a scam. Yes, any course costs something, and you often get what you pay for, but this does NOT mean that everything you decide to pay for is worth the cost. AWAI is not good because it charges. If it's good, it's because what it charges is worth the cost. I don't believe it is.
This does not mean it's a scam, but I can think of at least two dozen curses worth infinitely more, and that cost less.
I've taken many courses that charged me a good deal, but all were taught by true experts in the field, and from what I can tell, this is NOT the case with AWAI. There are certainly far better experts out there, and they charge farm, far less. Many, in fact, have much more information, and much better information, on their blogs and websites, and at no charge.
And AWAI does not teach anything that isn't taught in school.
AWAI may not be a scam, but this does not mean it's worth the price of admission.
I really do not mean this to be rude in any way, but you would think that any course dealing with writing would first make certain the writer knows how to use basic punctuation, primarily meaning how to use the comma correctly. This has been a prerequisite with every course I've taken. Apparently, AWAI thinks otherwise.
