For 30 years, BEAR'S GUIDE TO EARNING DEGREES BY DISTANCE LEARNING is the most comprehensive, respected, and opinionated guide to the potential minefield of non-traditional education. It's often faster, cheaper, and even better to earn an associate's, bachelor's, master's, doctorate, medical, or law degree off campus. As more schools bring the classroom to the student through mail, video, and the internet, the need for an accurate, up-to-date, and technically savvy resource is more crucial than ever. This is the guide for anyone looking to advance a stalled career, return to the workforce, or take the next step to advance his or her education.
