as a fairly new player in this game (one month) now that i have been here for a bit and understood some of the game basics, im wondering about the adveanced learning skills:
are they worth it. i mean, like u jave to train ur basic learnign skills to lvl V and onlu then u can train the advanced one`s, + they cost a bit (but that`s not the main factor)
so in the end it takes some considerable time to "lose" on the basic skills to lvl 5.
so that`s ur opinion, should the advanced learning kills be trained ?

Yes train adv learning skills to L4 and you gain 4 points of each attritbute so they are well worth it.

I'd certainly recommend learning the advanced skills. Cuts a lot of time down when wanting to learn other skills. They may be expensive but they're cheaper than implants and you won't lose them if you get pod-killed. Wink

When you have the 5th level of a basic skill, there is NO REASON not to train the advanced skill as well. In just a day you can train the advanced skill to level 3, which means you'll be seeing a fast increase in attribute points. Training level 4 advanced is definately worth it, as having the skill called Learning at level 5 will make the 4th level of advanced worth 2 points. (actually, that ain't perfectly, true, but that is how it looks in the game).

If you can't afford the advanced skill, BEG FOR IT. No excuses, you can't just give up on the idea.

Depends if you're playing Eve for the long-term as you don't see the benefits for a while but for example a recent skill trained to level 5 took 12 days less with advanced learning skills to 4.

less then what ?

I'd say, at the start of the game train up the normal learning skills to lvl 4, then go for the support and ship skills you want and need to do some trading, fly an industrial and a multi-role cruiser, fit the modules to go with it, have basic gunnry/missile skills to lvl 2-3, and basic EW skills.

After those, go for the advanced learning skills to level 4 and start your specialisation into whatever you like alot.

On my second account I went and did learning skills first (incl advanced), and went straight on to specialise in interceptors, covert ops and now assault frigs/cruisers. I took three months of training before that character was even worth playing with for me. Not training the advanced learning skills up right away takes trhat problem away as you are working on skills that directly affect your gameplay almost right away.

I'd agree with Rod Blaine. You need to qualify to some sort of degree in order to make the game playable. Unless it appeals to you, flying around in that rookie paper bag and armed with a gun that does less damage than the average spit. It leaves you stuck in 0.8 and up until you can get into a frig with some metal around it. Even if you just stop at industry 1 and go mining or trading with a basic industry ship. You'll need those ISK later anyway to buy higher level skills and equipment. Early skills up to lvl 3 take an hour or two at most so you won't gain a lot by spending all that time on advanced learnng.

I have got to Gallente Cruiser 1 and have my Exequtor equipped with 3 CPU boosters and 4 miner 2's so I can mine around 1M ISK per hour. while I skill up on advanced learning. Almost anyhting I learn from now takes a day or more so that extra learning skill goes a long way toward cutting it down.

It's really down to the individual. If you want to run around in a rookie ship for weeks while you train all the learning skills, it's entirely up to you. Although you won't gain a lot in the first 2 or 3 weeks after doing it because you are not training high enough skills to really benefit from it.
