Ohhh where do I start about RUE. I'll keep it simple: do not use them
Yep, they "guarantee" the exams. You must fail it 3 times and then they will refund your money. You won't fail it 3 times unless you are a complete idiot, and I'm sure you aren't.
The tests are taken at Sylvan (Prometric) no matter who you use for your study materials (RUE, Chancellor's, EC, etc.) RUE is not
the college. They have nothing to do with the college. They just make study materials for the tests that the college gives. How do they know what to include in the study materials? I'll tell you..... they send their staff to go and take the tests, and they come back and write down as much as they can remember. That's how they know. How do I know this? A RUE employee told me this. I heard it with my own ears.
You can save a TON of money if you go straight through EC. Their study guides are free (they'll mail them to you or you can download them on their website) and you can buy a couple of used texts (I had good luck with half.com). That's all you'll need. I was a fool and went with RUE, only to use the free EC guides in the end. I was much happier with them.
There have been a lot of posts on this board from people who have used RUE and their thoughts on them. Do a search and you will find more information than you ever wanted to know.
Those RUE staff people are smooth. Don't let them talk you into anything you don't want to do.

I have been thinking about finishing my BSN through RUE ED does anyone out there have any comments on this company or has anyone gone through them for their degrees? They use Excelsior payment is interest free and they guarantee passing the exams or your money back. They send you the workbooks to pass the tests and the tests are taken at a Sylvan Learning Center.
