    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.

    Barb,

    Don't let this hold you back, you can do it. I agree with mom2michael the U of Utah Stats class gives you all you need to pass. It is well written and you can redo assignments to get the grade you want. Most, if not all, of the "math" portion is done by the program you just need to know how to plug in the numbers. It really isn't as scary as it seems. The hardest part is taking the first step then rest will follow. Good luck to you.

    quick question -
    I am looking for an online stats class right now. Were the stats courses you guys took entirely online? including the tests, midterm, and final?

    Great!

    Can you tell me about the course format?
    Was there a lot of homework? How many exams? How long ago did you take it?

    Sorry for all the questions - I'm just having a hard time deciding which online program to choose!

    Thanks for your help!

    I just finished Stats through Frontier (literally - last week). There are 9 modules, and you have to submit a homework assignment for each module (which doesn't take very long if you understand the concept). Then there's a final exam, which is open book, open everything except another human (meaning, you can use google, but you cannot collaborate with another person).

    The homework was fairly easy IMO and not very time-consuming at all. It's not difficult to pass the course with an A. When you submit a homework assignment, if you don't get a good grade on it, she gives it back to you with helpful advice, and you can resubmit. So basically, she doesn't accept it for final grade until you've demonstrated you've mastered the concepts. Which means that everyone in the class got 94-100% on all the homework assignments.
