right. since i'm in a city, there's certainly a chance I'm not the only one using one, so it was a solid stocking stuffer to help out in an event that will (pray to god) never happen.
was given some for Christmas to put on the dog's collar.never had to use.
I did Manhattan, really liked it. I did some basic studying from their books before starting the actual course and scored low-600 something on the first practice. By 3/4 of the way through the course I was able to break 700, and on the actual exam I ended up with a 770.Never ended up going to B-school, left finance to work in Tech instead.
Google maps was weird every now and then, sent me to obviously wrong roads/turns. Right next to the airport there's a big McDonald's sign, and there's a gas station right next to that.

you can if you buy from a place like CarMax. I think 5 years/125K miles is something like $4k.
i mean there's some caveats to this. W'Burg is not Manhattan. A car could actually be quite convenient since there's only 1 train line, crap busses, and very few cabs (but thank god for Uber). If you're a "leave BK on the weekend" type, then yeah, you can manage a car in W'Burg for non-Manhattan car prices. It's still expensive, but it could be worse, and there's a number of gas stations, plus easy access to the BQE for your Hamptons escape. We've actually been...
