In addition, I personally have found that most of the teachers are either lazy or just dont know the material of the class they are teaching. They usually don't have an answer to questions I have asked. Usually they just refer the questions to other classmates or send you to an online website for instructions. The online Baker College instructors DO NOT TEACH THE COURSES! If you want to learn the subject, you teach yourself. And the other reviews I have read about Baker are also true. If you are comfortable learning the subject on your own efforts, you will do well. If you do well being instructed on the material including hands on practice, best not take courses online thru Baker College. The greatest difficulty I have had so far with Baker College instructors have been their lack of interest in the students and just plain refusing to answer questions. The subject matter is hard enough by itself, much less not getting any answers when I am struggling. If I have presented to my instructor my work and ask for confirmation or ask for some help, I never got an answer to my questions from them. It kind of made me wonder if they even knew the subject matter they were in charge of teaching. Incidentally, the instructors don't write the course nor do they chose the books. So usually they don't know anything about the books nor the course they are supposed to be teaching. I believe that if they did chose the books and wrote the course, they would be knowledgeable enough to answer my questions.
I would like to end on a positive note however. My academic advisor IS AWESOME and very interested in my success at Baker College!!! Ask for T. if you decide to attend Baker College online after all.
