Can I contact other Campbell's College students?

I am worried about studying accounts by distance learning - can you help? Jim Skinner our finance tutor writes:
I am a firm believer that you can divide the entire population of the world into two categories, numbers people and words people. I am also of the opinion that the words people think that they are no good at accounts. Many students are words people and leave the accounting subjects to last. They have achieved passes in other subjects and then the day arrives when they have to tackle the dreaded accounts.
The Campbell's training course is designed with this in mind. No previous book-keeping knowledge is required, you can work at your own pace, the material is written in plain English showing short cuts and "common sense" solutions to problems. All that is required is a commitment to work as hard as you can and send in papers for marking. I have many years experience of producing material for Campbell's College and I know that hard work and an organised approach to study (with no bad luck) will eventually lead to examination success.
