For the past three years I have been trying to take classes at BC. I can never get in because by the time I am eligible to register, all of the classes are full. Now they are getting rid of night and weekend classes, which is the stupidest idea ever because they are now unable to offer anything to the people who work full time jobs. When I would call to set up appointments with counselors to try to get into classes, I was either told they were all busy or nobody was even their to answer the phone. This college is a joke.

Three years ago I was taking COMS B7X Web authoring classes at BC. I found the classes were designed for someone who knows the software already, particularly the on-line classes "taught" by Mr. Moseley. The tutorials were old and it was the responsibility of the student to figure it out. I found out too late that some of the student’s answers are better answered as the instructor answers questions with a question or my questions are partly answered, and I am supposed to figured it out myself or ask the other on-line students. I had to drop B76A Macromedia Flash because the tutorials for the mid-term were out of date and some had broken links. Adobe Systems bought out Macromedia seven years ago for over $3 billion dollars, but the Bakersfield College catalog still calls former Macromedia Web authoring products, Macromedia. There is a creditability factor there for me and I am hesitant to take Coms B7X classes again at BC. In my opinion COMS classes are there to churn out certificates and Mr. Moseley is there to pickup a paycheck. A big waste of money for the taxpayer and the student!
