TBR books (full set) when you paid with Money Order/Cashier Check.

Someone on chat said it would take a month.....

1 week from the time I sent in my money order. Send in a money order and there will be no problems. I can't believe how many times I've said this in one months time. Do a search.

Maybe you should re-read what OP asked; because the author asked how soon he should expect them to arrive because he was hearing otherwise.

Not, what the best method to pay for them.

I know what he was asking. I just wanted to be sure the OP wouldn't use a check because that does take upwards to a month. There is quite a strong relationship between the method of payment and how long it takes for the books to arrive.

It shouldn't make a difference at all. Mistakes like that mean little when the person depositing them is familiar, the company is reputable and the dollar amount is normal. At least that's what my sister told me when she worked at a bank. It seems like common sense prevails in banking....that is, outside of real estate lending.

So I sent in my Cashier's check in Yesterday; Friday, May 08. I sent it in Express Mail with a Saturday 12NOON mailing guarantee. I'll update how long it takes before I get my tracking number from Berkeley.

I read one chapter a day and do phases I and II of the questions the next day. Reading takes about 2 hours, the Qs take more like 3 or 4 when combined with going over the answers.
