    Best on the market!

    Bears' Guides are the standard reference for anyone interested in distance learning. This book provides all of the information that anyone could possibly need to make a program choice and does so in a well-written, humourous manner. Don't even bother looking at the others. They're bland by comparison!

    Good Book!

    I concur with reader #2. Reader #1 has lost his marbles, I've been buying John Bear College Guide for about 6 yrs now. The best by far! Second-to-None!!!

    The only reliable resource for distance education

    I can only suspect that the critic who gave this book one star must have some personal ax to grind. I've used the three previous versions of Dr. Bear's guide to pursue two graduate degrees of my own. My wife found her MBA program through this book, as well. No other resource comes close to this for completeness of information and ease of use. I've done a lot of research on this topic, and tried other books and web sites. They simply don't hold a candle to Bear's Guide. It's well worth the money -- and you'll save both money and time by using it. If you're considering any kind of 'non-traditional education,' then you need this book.

    I did not think it was worth the money.

    I thought I was getting a guide book. What I got was recommendations to use non accredited schools. I want my school to have some history. can I have my money back?
