I would recommend taking 1 on site college course before starting an online program. This way you can gauge which type of education setting will work best for you." (Business Manager; 2014)


"Online Classes Are Convenient, But Take Them Seriously...
Take it seriously, as it is college and you are working on a degree. It's weird to take it on your time schedule, and you can be in your pajamas at midnight taking a test. But don't confuse convenience with it being too easy. You have to put a lot of time and work into it." (Wholesale Management; 2014)
