5.0 su 5 stelle Interesting Guide To Alternative Education 3 marzo 2015
Di Sexy Bachelor - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I own a copy of this 1995 guide which was published 20 years ago - in 1995. Most, if not all, of the listed schools that disappeared are unaccredited ones. They couldn't keep up with the times. Many accredited schools still exist. If this guide book is of any worth, it is an invaluable insight into the ingenuity of nontraditional schools that offer all sorts of alternative courses that cater to all walks of life. If you like collecting books, this Bear's Guide give you a view of how creative nontraditional schools have been. Since the advent of online education in the Internet Age, there is still room for educational hobbyists and schools who want to offer alternative education to working adults.

I hope that John Bear (and his successors) would publish an up-to-date guide for people who want to carry on their education in their adult working life.

5.0 su 5 stelle Bear's Book a Standard for Advising Non-traditional Students 1 aprile 2000
Di Barton L. Bond - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
First a bit of background - I have been involved in distance education for over 25 years and have been a university and community college faculty member for over 15 years. I have traditional bachelors and masters degrees (two of them in fact). My work in distance education includes the design, production, scheduling and delivery of "traditional" video telecourses as well as Web-based courses.
In my work with students over the past decade and a half, I have advised a significant number to explore completetion or advancement of their academic programs through non-traditional or distance programs.
In all that time, I have used Dr. Bear's books as my primary referrence about distance education. I believe I started with the second edition of his "Bear's Guide" and have acquired every update since. For a number of years, his was the only publication which presented a comprehensive collection of information about programs and schools.
I have always received positive feedback form my students who relied on the information Dr. Bear presented - their expereinces with specific schools most often mirrored the reviews in the "Guide".
Throughout the years and the progression of new additions I have noted a marked shift in the method of presentation, particularly regarding the level of Dr. Bear's crusaiding against those institutions that did not measure-up to his standards. The largest number of those outfits would be called degree mills, but he did assail a fair number of "real" schools for being non-responsive, pompus or disorganized.
I must confess I miss that level of "edge" in his last couple of editions. This is unfortuante, I beleive, given the growth of educaitonal coursework via the Internet and the fact that the majority of two and four-year schools in the U.S are offering some form of distance learing (with that number growing every day.
Nonetheless, I still find "Bear's Guide" to be the best single resource for distance and non-traditional post-secondary education.

5.0 su 5 stelle I used John Bear's book to earn 3 college degrees. 2 settembre 1997
Di Paul Trejo - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
In the mid-80's I had a high-school diploma and a decent job, yet I knew I had more information
and reading/writing skills than most of my peers and many of those higher in the corporate ladder. I decided to read John Bear's GUIDE TO EARNING COLLEGE DEGREES NON-TRADITIONALLY. I read it, re-read it and studied it. I decided to act on his advice.
In two years I obtained an AA degree from the University of the State of New York, while working at my regular job and never attending a college campus except for a few hours to take some monitored tests. In the next two years I obtained a BA degree from the same University,
by passing only two more tests; both entrance exams. John Bear assured me that my degrees were fully accredited, but I wondered. I decided to apply for an MA degree from Cal State at Dominguez Hills; another one of John Bear's recommendations. I had never heard of the USNY before reading his book, but I surely had heard of Cal State, so I applied for their off-campus MA program. To my delight I was
accepted on the weight of my BA degree from USNY, and in another two years I earned my MA degree while working at my regular job, without ever setting a foot on the CSDH campus. Since that time I have advanced my career to the level of a consultant, and my income is nearly triple my mid-80's income. I attribute at least part of my success to the self-confidence and prestige of having these sheep-skins on my resume and on my walls.
Thank you, Dr. John Bear, for your invalubable book, which has greatly enriched my life.

Best regards,
--Paul Trej
