"I am taking an online course on Introduction to Excel. I understand it is an introduction but to me it seems like the course is geared towards people who have never opened a spreadsheet in their life. There are no videos for visual understanding, just 2-3 pages of text for each lesson. Very disappointed with the curriculum, and most importantly it is way overpriced. The course is certainly not worth $139. I was planning on taking the Intermediate and Advanced courses too but you live and learn. And I can say this because I am also taking a simultaneous course on Coursera and I am learning a lot more in details. Their videos are informative, the quizzes are challenging and they cover a lot more in details. For the chart style lessons, I straightaway jumped to the quiz section without reading the short 2-paragraph chapters because I knew it all from Coursera already. I would not recommend this course to anyone because you certainly don't get your money's worth."

"DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THAT ANYONE SAYS THAT THEY WILL DO TO HELP YOU IN ANY WAY if you have any disability they will throw you under the bus with promises they know that they can never keep and also be prepared to waste hour of you life with appointments that will never achieve anything or help at all"

  • Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
"Took a voluntary layoff from a full time job to go back to this college because I was working two jobs so I made a tough decision to better myself. I finished the hybrid medical billing and coding program. I spent $ 3,000 on a course that did not prepare you well enough for the CPC exam. The whole class failed. So now out a job and money. Program should NOT be taught in a hybrid course. As we all know.. It takes Doctors 20 years plus to get there job fully.. Trying to learn it in 3 months isn't practical or probable. ."

"By far this is best school to start your secondary education. They have great class with educators who what to help you succeed and are willing to sit down with you one on one to help you get on the right track. They have a library that is well stock for essays needing to be down and a bounty of computers to right your essays on. The price for a semester is on average $3000 give or take which is a great price. They also have awesome transfer agreements with colleges like Temple University which also can include scholarship money at Temple. If I had to say on negative thing about the college I would have to say parking during the day can be extremely hard on main campus unless you're there early in the morning you might have to park in a very distant parking lot from your classroom building."

  • Degree: Criminal Justice
"Many people look at Bucks County Community College as a type of "13th grade;" A lot of people complain saying that they are "stuck there" due to financial instabilities. However, in my opinion Bucks offers quality education at a decent price. You would get the same education at Bucks that you would at any University. Its close to home, flexible hours, and plenty to do. Many people scared me before I entered college telling me that professor's do not care about their students. However, I experienced differently. Every professor I had made a difference in my college career. One in particular, for those of you who are looking at Criminal Justice, make sure you take classes with Harvey Ellis; he is one of the most influential professors you will ever have. Each professor takes time out of their schedules in order to help you accomplish your semester goals; if you ask for it. My advice to you is to use your time at Bucks and utilize all of the opportunities that you have there! It really is a wonderful school!"
