MLC is a very demanding, challenging course. It is 15 days of none stop classes with no day off. I do not recommend taking the DL course because it’ll be more confusing (info I got from my battle that did the DL). The writing portion is all APA style. The course prepares you for all the writing/papers you’ll have to do at the SGM Academy. If you provide me your email address I will send you all of my notes. Although it was a hard course, it is also rewarding because I learned a lot and I know I definitely earned my 1059 without a doubt. I hope this helps... My email is [login to see]

Google the Purdue Owl, it has almost everything you need to know about college writing styles. Although ask your facilitator for an example of how to vote army regulation because they dinged me hard for using the owl format. Major topics taught in MLC are the Joint Planning Process, mission command, and MDMP. You will have 2 group projects, 2 essays, 2 power point presentations, and 3 short answers exams. Only 1 paper and two short answer exams go to your actual GPA. I did the non-resident course, I do not recommend it.

SFC (Join to see) I would rather do the 17 day resident course because the DL course still uses the experiential learning model. This model requires discussion between participants with a SME to guide the discussion that is not present during the DL class. The discussion board questions and required responses are not enough to elicit a conversation for someone without prior experience of the subject to learn anything.
Another reason is the length of the course, I'd rather knock out a 17 day POI than a 6 week POI.
Also the distance class made group projects frustrating dealing with timezones. Our group had people across the US, Germany, and Hawaii. Sometimes written communication is not the best method to use and it was hard to call people if needed during waking hours.

The course is very demanding. I finished last month and spent and average of 3 hours a night studying and working on assignments. Everything in this course is writing and they follow the APA format. I would just say practice writing and have some one read it to see if it flows and makes since. Formatting and grammar is something you can brush up on. The course is all about time management and once I got a hang of how often an evaluation would happen I was fine.
