I am just at the beginning and found the study materials to be good. Contacted my tutor once so far and received a reply within less than an hour, so I thought it was excellent. I just realised how much I was interested in crime stories and how they were investigated. The most fascinating ones are the ones without closure I must say. Definitely, I would recommend Open Study College to a friend. So far, my experience has been a positive one.
