Well I had read good and bad reviews of the OU, but thought I would give it a shot. Initial communication is good, and the level of support seems impressive, however, once you pay your fees, all that seems to dissapear.
The resources are copied from old cassette tapes to CDs, and are clearly well over twenty years old, the software sent out was made in 1987!
Once the course begins you are inundated with books, all good if you learn from reading alone, but there is no other methods used, the tapes/cds merely read straight from the book.
Tutorials are just a joke too, if you dont get it dont ask seems to be the way here, as if you do ask questions you will be made to feel an idiot for not getting it!
All in all i cannot see how the OU has the rating it does, as i truly feel that once they have your money they really dont care if you pass or fail,
