4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tori Atchison on January 26, 2011
I found this book to be a wonderful tool for learning the ins and outs of obtaining a college degree, specifically a doctorate, through an online school. With the increase in online education nationally this gives a would-be student hands on information that they can utilize in making a decision as to whether they want to learn online or by traditional means of attending a college campus. This is an excellent resource for adult learners who has plans to return to college and needs help in deciding whether they want to attend classes on campus or online. It gave great insight into the experiences of six doctoral candidates who obtained their doctorate online at one of the nations premiere online universities. I would recommend this book to anyone who plans to attend or return to college. With all of the online offerings today, why would anyone want to drive to a university or college and spend their day going from class to class and building to building when they can accomplish the same learning by sitting in the comfort of your own home and using your computer. Take those hours away from Facebook and return to college. It's a wonderful opportunity for everyone! This is a must buy for any high school graduate, college student, or adult learner planning to return to college.

I saw this book advertised in a recent University of Phoenix Alumni magazine. I am about to embark on an online doctoral journey, so naturally, I was intrigued. This purchase turned out to be one of the best I have made in a very long time. The authors carefully guide the reader through the process of selecting a program and university, including what to expect along the way. Stories of personal experiences from each of the authors left me with a much better understanding of what I can expect over the next four years. I am grateful for their unique insights. I feel I am much better prepared for my next educational endeavor.

I received this book a few days ago and love the information. I can see it from the student's perspective. The authors provide great insight of the online doctoral experience. I just wish I had it a couple of years ago before. It is a great resource to waddle through the ARB process. I am in the full speed ahead process.
