  • I did, but it made me so mad. The program I was taking, I found the same resources on line for FREE elsewhere. Look over it well...

  • beware of online "businesses" that are for profit. Go to to see common problems. I was think ing of going to strayer university but they are way overpriced and read reports on them (and kaplan, University of phoenix and more) . I'm going to a community college here in the spring. So, do research! Alot of these are out for money and not education.

  • I used it for my wedding planning certificate. I was fine with the outcome . but i would check with your community college and see what is available. I chose Penfoster because the program was recommended and I could do it in my own pace.
