Who has done these? I'm planning on doing the anthropology one on Christmas break to meet the cross cultural requirement. Any info on it? How hard is it to do?... Read More

    So you did most of the work on the weekend?
    10 day course, that was like 2 weekends? So did you work 8 -10 hours a day?
    I work full time and spent every evening reading and watching videos or writing the answers to discussions, which were actually summaries. I cranked out the two papers first, then watched the videos and did those responses then took the tests.
    The tests has some rather obscure questions and were timed. I was convinced after getting 70s on most of my tests that I was not doing well but the papers must have been more weighted than the tests. I would not try to do all of the work only on the two weekends. My pressure was that I did not get a good start on the book before the class. It took me a bit to figure out Moodle but it is an easy system to navigate!

    Thanks for all the input. I definitely do NOT want to do fashion and culture, so I will probably just suffer through it. I'm the same way, I want my A. As long as it's doable, I can make it work. I just want to be done by April as I have planned. I have to do Chemistry still as well, but am planning on taking that through Rio Solado.

    I was considering taking stats there then heard it was much harder than it used to be.

    Maybe you already know about this, but did you check out Ohio U's course by correspondence? I'm don't know if they have the classes you need, but may be worth checking out.

    Are there any other classes that can be done besides the Fashion and Culture one?

    I went ahead and did my stats at a local college near me. I knew there was no way I could do that one on line. I'm glad I did it that way.

    I'm doing stats through OU, over the 15 weeks. Not looking forward t 15 weeks of that class, but I knew I couldn't do an accelerated course.

    Cincinursemary, just do a search for Rio Solado and it will bring up their page. They have all the info on there. Classes start almost every Monday, so you don't have to wait. All the experiments are with household products. I can't do a campus class, with 2 kids work and school here. Chem is 3 days or nights a week here.

    Didi, no I didn't even think about that. Those are all 15 week courses though right?

    Boy it took some digging to find this again. Looks like the entire website changed. Anyways, you can take what they now call a "print version" of a course, or course credit by exam, or what they call Independent Study. I actually did my nutrition course through here, long before online courses (like 15 years ago). Here's the website:

    nd this is the course list:

    t was not easy to navigate around, but my understanding is you have 8 months to complete a course in this manner and can sign up anytime. Except I guess you have to wait until Oct 1

    So Simply Complicated you took chemistry thru Rio??? I need it also. I am looking at the 8 week class thru Oregon State. It has a virtual lab.
