Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Following chatty chapters on college degrees, accreditation, and correspondence courses and other alternative ways of earning credit, this book provides one-page descriptions of 100 schools in the United States and abroad that award degrees requiring little or no residency, from unaccredited American Coastline University to accredited Western Illinois University. Nine appendixes, including, strangely enough, the index to the more comprehensive Bear's Guide to Earning College Degrees Non-Traditionally (now published by Bear's own Greenwich Univ. Pr., 1990. 13th ed.), complete the volume. Unfortunately, Bear has included some diploma mills among his 100 ``good schools.'' Libraries that already have a copy of Bear's Guide (formerly published by Ten Speed) should stick with that book, which lists several hundred schools in shorter format.-- Leonard Grundt, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, N.Y.
Booknews
In this latest incarnation of the formerly titled Bear's guide to earning nontraditional college degrees, Bear has selected one hundred of the best schools, and devotes a page to each, giving information including address, phone, fax number, key person to contact, cost, programs offered, accreditation status, and his own personal evaluation of the school.
