associates are definately creative and useful with their suggestions.
It presents with a nice angle.
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.
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.
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.
