I am a habitual student. Currently I am taking a computer course thru the National Radio Institute. I live in Washington state, and they are located in Washington D.C. I am sent books thru the mail, and CD Roms along with disks. I mail my homework to them, and they mail my grades back. As I progress, more work is sent to me. It's working out just fine.
