The OU is fantastic if you can work independently and manage your time. Everyone else will need to go to a face to face university to be spoon fed.
The OU is not an easy ride, and you should see that from the high standards most graduates achieve.
I have found that tutors are generally supportive and get back to you very quickly (varies per unit). If you have a complaint forward it onto the course team and it will soon be resolved.
I reiterate, only take it if you are serious about working full time whilst studying part time and if you are going to make excuses like family etc might get in the way, then distance learning is not for you.
