Too Many Mailings & Dubious Sales

"To being with, we seem to get one of the emails or snail mail catalogs every few days. It was easy to stop the emails through their web site, but stopping the snail mail catalogs required calling, and it was a long, tedious process. During the first call, I was on hold for 8 mins. 12 secs., and when it finally connected to a rep, the call abruptly was ended. I called again and was on hold another 9 mins. and finally managed to speak to someone, who told me he would take care of it, but it will take 4 - 6 wks. to be completely removed from their catalog list.

I find the sales to be dubious. For instance, they seem to consistently say they are having a big sale. They advertise a course on sale for $120 that supposedly has a regular price of $500. I don't believe this at all - I think it's just a sales tactic.

I ordered one course - it was nice - but it wasn't worth the money I paid for it, and it certainly wasn't worth all this hassle.

Lack of instructor contact

"The course is adequate for learning at home. However, my problem is when doing the exercises, there is no feedback from an instructor. Therefore, I am never sure if I'm on the right track or if there is some way that I can improve my writing."

My brain loves this!!

"My new favorite hobby is listening to The Great Courses lessons. I have learned about Particle Physics, Ancient Egyptian History, the Anatomy of the Brain, and the Industrial Revolution. My brain can barely contain its delight in what it will learn next! The few courses that did not meet my expectation were easily returned without a hassle."

Not quite what I expected...BUT...

"I expected more science and less generalizations. The use of the word "but" got to be a distraction. Religion was not addressed well. Far better is Michael Shermer's course: Skepticism 101: How to Think like a Scientist. (No buts about it.)"

Reading, Writing and Arithmetic

"I've ordered courses on all these subjects, including the course for high school students on becoming a successful student. I am very pleased with the courses I ordered for myself. The first two were CDs, but the latest was in DVD format. Frankly, either format works just fine for me. I am an avid reader, and enjoy learning a variety of subjects. The courses were as advertised, and I will continue to order in the future."
