I have registered for several college before, but I fell PCC is the best around LA area. In LA they have a lot of city college, but their quality is not very good. In PCC they have better teacher, I feel. And also the critiria here are more strict and students are studying very hard. The class that they are open are pretty good usually quite close to what are avaiable in university. I definately recommend to go PCC first before you go to the state university. Save money a lot with the same quality. The only problem is the parking, sometimes it is really hard to find the parking in the afternoon. I have to pay for the parking for each semester and soemtimes you can't find it even if you have the permit to park.
