ANA correspondence courses

Has anyonre taken any of the ANA correspondence courses?  I am considering it and am seeking feed back from anyone who may have experience with them.


I've taken Introduction to grading US coins in Atlanta last year in conjunction with the Money Show, and plan to make it to Summer Seminar next year. 

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

I was really hoping you would get some replies to this. I had the same question but for whatever reason never thought to ask.

Hmm.  I have never heard of the courses before.  I would love to learn about them too.

To get basic information about the program,  go to the Discover button then go to School of Numismatics.  There are details listed there.  The actual program is called the Numismatics Diploma Program. 


Still looking for input from anyone that may have been in the program.

I took the numismatic diploma program in 2010 and found that the correspondence
courses used were interesting and thoroughly covered the subject matter. It was an enjoyable experience.

I am considering this but before I decide on it, I would love to see on of the course manuals to review and help make up my mind.......

Hello everyone. I'm taking the courses now. I'm on the last one. I've decided not to take the big overview test. That is a separate option one can take advantage of or not. This is just for my education. I would recommend them to everyone. They are very informative. You will learn a lot. I also recommend that you take advantage of the mentor option. You will have questions. At least I did. Your assigned mentor definitely helps. The only negative things I have to say about the courses is some of the questions are pretty confusing. Much like a DMV test. They are all open book so you want to do well. Also it is a little dated in that it barely mentions the internet for options in different things. You'll see. Also the Summer Seminar is a perfect complement to whatever subject matter you want to concentrate on., I did it this year and am very happy I did it. I think anyone thinking about taking the courses will be happy they do it! Plus a couple of the courses come with DVD's. That is a big help! Just my opinion. I could be wrong. The ANA staff is VERY helpful!
