Good Distance Learning Courses?
« on: Dec 08, 2006, 02:38 »
Has anyone had especially good luck with any of the colleges? 

Specifically, I would like to take a beginning Stats class & 1st semester Calculus.

Thanks! :)

I am currently taking (in fact book is open in front of me now) stats from Thomas Edison State College.  The school has been fairly easy to work with and the course is what they call self guided- meaning I read book do homework and send it in, there is a midterm and a final (both open book, and sci calc allowed, but no notes).  The tests will require get someone to be a procter but that is ussually easy.  Overall I think it is an east way to take a course that I do not want to "waste" time sitting in a class for but to difficult to just test out of.  Believe me you do not want to test out of stats because unless you were a bookkeeper/statistian for a major sport league (and I do not think fantasy football counts) there is just to much subject specific terminilogy to try and "Clep" it.
As for calc I know they offer it but I took mine in a standard classroom, and personally would recommend you do that if at all possible if not my recommendation would be to look at your local community college for an online class.  That way you would have an instructor and what ever tools the school makes available to its students.  Here in Va I took mine at Tidewater CC and they have a math tutor lab n the library you can go to for help even if you are not taking the regular classroom class.

Hope this helps and good luck.

I like the idea of having the tutor, math lab, library, instructor, etc...but my current position will send me out-of-town a lot, so want something that I can do anywhere.

I am not trying for a degree right now.  Job uses statistics a bunch, so need to get more familiar with the concepts.  And want to take Calc while my Trig is still reasonably fresh in my head...I had it about a year and a half ago. 

Thanks for the TESC info!  :)
