This is apparently  1/4 of the Camp Logo 2 course. For those who have taken this class live or who own the full Camp 2 Logos, please tell me what you think of this course. It appears to be something which would be tremendously helpful, but it is being released 10 days after Christmas which is incredibly bad timing for me financially.

I really was hoping for some type of feedback on this before it ships on Monday. I need to decide to get it or drop it. I have not been to Camp Ligos 2 so i'm wondering if this teaching by Morris has been helpful on organizing resources.

For me personally, I could never justify the price of these when Learnlogos.com offers essentially the same for a fraction of the price.

Just my opinion.

In my opinion, Logos should provide free training instead of profiting from their neglect.  I hope Logos does the right thing and includes training videos to complement version 7 when it's released.

John,

I know you haven't gotten any feedback on the training yet.  Unfortunately, I don't have the Camp Logos DVD's so I can't offer you any advice.

I hope someone responds soon.

I've never been to camp logos but have purchased both 1 and 2 dvds. I've had them for libronix, l4, and l5. I think camp 2 has been the best. Camp 1 teaches and goes over many of the features while camp 2 drills down and gets into how to organize your books and other things. 

The cost is high but I've always enjoyed them. And while I like learlogos videos very much, I have always felt a difference between the two. 

If you have the money, buy the camp 2 videos. That's my opinion.

I just saw your post now otherwise would have responded earlier. I attended a camp Logos course 1 & 2 a couple of years ago and ended up tagging and organizing my books according to Morris' recommendations. I am very happy with the way it turned out. Especially with commentaries as I have quite a few, it is very helpful to me to have them organized by the categories like he suggests. I have not used any of his DVD's as I attended the class but can say I am very happy with the organization of books that he recommends.

Have you watched what LogosPro is doing in the Logos produced training?

You are 1000% correct. For $60 one can learn essentially all they need to know to be a fairly great user of Logos, and gets lots of extras that outline specific resources that one should invest in to make the software more robust. Im so thankful I discovered LearnLogos. After I used the LearnLogos 4 videos I was VERY disappointed in the Camp Logos DVDs. Its been the same with L5. I didnt even bother with Camp Logos for L6.

Thank you all for giving me some feedback. I had forgotten all about LearnLogos.com. I bought training videos for Logos 4 some years back and i've now gone and looked at their current offerings. I think i'm going to stay with the Pre-pub deal on Organizing Your books, which on investigation, appears to be day 2 of Camp Logos 2 so $50 seems like a reasonable price. However, in a month or two i'll be getting the training pack from LearnLogos also.

I've been using Logos since 2.1 back in the 90's and went to camp Logos back in the Libronix days, but i always feel like i could do a better job of using what i have.

Might be little late into the conversation, but...

If you're looking for a little info on Prioritizing, Mike Meiser from FL did a live webinar here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3QENcs4mik&list=PLXkjd_l1xkSTZeMcwPPPcDnl6RoHpYfcG&index=16 (it's for Logos5, but still relevant for Logos6) that's still on Youtube talking about how to get the most out of your library. He goes through a run down the 5 types of resources to prioritize (I think it may be based on MP's suggestions) and a couple other basics.

It's an hour long and goes over the basics, but worth the watch IMO, especially since it's FREE.  I've also seen numerous threads where people have shared their preferences in resource prioritization around the forums.

Hope it helps!
