    I took statistics online at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, NH. I was dreading it also, but I didnt find it too bad. I ended up with a B.
    I felt the prof did everything he could to help us learn it. He expected us to learn how to use the software to do stats instead of learning all the formulas. There were no formulas to learn.
    Good luck with it.

    OSU (Oregon state) has an online statistics course based in psychology. It requires no pre-requisites and is accepted towards any BSN program in our state. It's online. More expensive than a comm. college but cheaper than a university.

    Brigham Young University (BYU) has an online 400 level statistics course called Introduction to Psychological Statistics. Nothing is really online except the grade checking and study guides. I am NOT good at math and pulled a high C - good enough to get into my masters program. The upside: It is only $600.00 for the entire course (unless it went up) The downside: You have to take the exams at a local college which can cost some extra $$.

    Good luck!

    Springfield Tech Comm College(STCC) in Springfield, MA offers an online Statistics course. The course is self paced, no homework and 7 exams during the semester. If you've already taken online classes and don't really need the assistance of a professor then you'll probably love this course. I do!

    kater5899 I took statistics last summer at iowacconline with Professor S the male professor. Great class, no proctored tests, DB every week, a quiz every week that you can take as many times as you want, 3 tests worth 30 points each that you have 3 hours to take. Got an A in the class and it is 8 weeks

    Thank u...that is a big help. I think I am going to give it a shot this summer. Sorry, one more question... did u have to take quizzes or tests on a certain day?

    The quizzes were once a week, as I said you could take as many times as you wanted. The tests opened up on a certain day and you had to have it done also I believe by the end of the week. Use southwestern as your home college if you do it. You won't have to have any prereq's through them
