    I looked into Rio - but you have to have taken college algebra within the last 5 (or 10) years. Someone will correct me. There is NO algebra pre-req for stats at OU.
    You are correct that OU requires NO algebra or math prerequisite. The last math class I took was in high school back in the 70s. My diploma program required pharmacology through the school of nursing which included math and drug calculations, but it was not a math class. It was also in the 70s. The actual math used in stats is not complex.

    Midterm and final are proctored - I made arrangements to take them at the local CC.

    The stats that I took was Elementary Statistical Reasoning, with Professor K.
    She is the prof in rninme's post I think.
    There are 2 proctored exams. Not that difficult......you have to prepare, and practice the problems. Exams are open book and open note. If you take good notes and write out the steps in a way that makes sense to you, it is not too hard. I took my exams at my hospital library for free.

    Take good notes if you need to - I printed off the practice examples and explanations and worked them out. Also printed out the module assignments and worked those out also. Tabbed them - mod 1, mod 2, etc. I also tabbed sections of the books. Dr K lets you know how many points will be from each module on the midterm and on the final. Great class - and I HATE math!! The discussion board for each module is also a life saver. If you can't figure something out - ask your classmates. And the videos rocked!!

    You are the first to say you actually enjoyed the class! Thanks! Which professor did you have? Any helpful hints? Trying to decide what / when to take. I did decent in math but that was YEARS ago... Quite intimidated by this as I have heard of a few people failing! Thanks!
