    I live in the SF bay area. Do you guys know of any online statistics courses that I can take? I have taken a lot of math but statistics and since its a prerequisite, I have to finish it by the end of this year. Any suggestion would be very appreciated.

    Belinda,
    Really the Utah one isn't too bad. It is all open book and very easy to follow. It is written in a very easy to understand way. It does cover a lot of material but they have done a great job of putting it together. I heard that Frontier was no longer accepting the Canyon College course so make sure it will qualify for the school you want to attend before you take it. Test wise for the Utah course it is open book and I take it at the Library.

    Does this class from Utah get accepted by most of the nursing program? Thank you all for the replies!

    Christy: Help! I am applying to Frontier also (a friend is in it and LOVES it!), but I am completely dumb in math and do NOT know algebra and I have to take (ugh) statistics. What one did you end up taking and what do you suggest? Any help (and support) is gratefully appreciated!

    The Frontier class is not bad at all. Very little math...you mostly use SPSS, which is a program that comes with your textbook. The name of the textbook says it all..."Statistics for People Who Think They Hate Statistics." There is only one "test" and if I remember correctly it was open book. There are several small graded assignments that you complete along the way.

    I just finished the University of Utah Stats class. VERY easy and I don't like math and I dreaded this class terribly. They give you all the information you'll need to pass their tests if you are willing to take the time to find it.

    All the tests are open book/notes. All the assignments are online and you are able to have "do overs" to raise your grade - very easy to get 100% on assignments and games if you are willing to take the time...... It was a very simple, very easy class. I took it over Frontier's because Frontier's was kind of expensive when I compared it to U of U.
