If one speaks to highly-trained auditors, executives, and other veterans from the 70's about the Primary Rundown, he immediately discovers that a high percentage of them have not only done this course, but credit it as essential to their success in Scientology and life.

The reason is simple — LRH insisted it be done:

“…THE PRIMARY RUNDOWN IS THE REQUIRED FIRST STEP TO ALL STUDY."

“It is up to the Course Supervisor to hold this line in. His students will not prosper if their study is begun without a Primary Rundown.

It is a high crime to omit this vital step.”
