Mometrix LLC DO NOT ORDER THEIR EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS', unless you want to waste hours assembling the flash cards! Internet
21st of Feb, 2010 by User190374
It seems there is no end to the schemes these days. I am studying for the National Academy of Sports Medicine board certification to become a certified personal trainer. The course is obtuse, redundant, difficult and stressful unless you already have a kinesiology degree. It's like opening a Greek textbook. The last thing you need is more aggravation. More than once I wanted to throw the 100 pound book off a bridge.

To top it off, along comes Mometrix LLC of Beaumont, Texas, and waves a big flag on the internet, promising the 'secrets of success' to pass this exam. Apparently a good many folks flunk this exam which could be the subject of another Rip Off Report.... but I digress.

Mometrix LLC of Beaumont, Texas, offers a FLASH CARD system, which in itself is not a bad idea, to help you memorize the material. Their ad is nice and seductive, and you actually believe you are going to receive, for the sum of $55.00 (!!!) a user-friendly set of cards that you can employ immediately. I mean, for that price, what else would you expect?

Instead, I got a giant envelope stuffed with a thick ream of 8 1/2 by 11 perforated, printed paper, and an instruction sheet. The instruction sheet directed me to 1) pull apart the 250 cards at the perforation lines in order to create the finished set of flash cards 2) then to organize the willy-nilly cards into some semblance of order by topic, one that follows the NASM textbook, since Mometrix had not bothered to do even that small favor for me, and then 3) find three 'little boxes' to stash the various cards in by subject and category, and finally 4) follow their convoluted system of memorization and shift the cards around in the three boxes. This operation is even more difficult than the damned course.

Who does the thinking at Mometrix? If the deal had been only $15.00, I would not be so pissed. But for $55.00 I am supposed to sit around and waste hours getting the system ready to use? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? I mean, they could hire some dodo and buy a paper cutter and at the very least have this dodo cut the cards for you and rubber-band them. Even that would have been acceptable. But no, these entitled elitists at Mometrix would prefer that I run around finding little boxes to put the cards in, like I don't already have enough on my mind. Way too much drama for a product that is supposed to ease your pain. It's like rubbing salt in a wound.

This company is a rip off with a zillion BBB complaints, and I have a dispute open with PayPal, since I paid through them.

CAVEAT EMPTOR and don't buy anything from this company unless you want to sit around the campfire cutting paper dolls.
