Statistics at Tarrant County College

  1. Can anyone recommend a good professor for statistics at Tarrant County College (South or Southeast campus)? Math is my most difficult subject, and I would really like to find a professor that is patient and willing to answer questions if you have them. Also, did you feel like Algebra was more or less difficult than statistics? I will be taking Algebra and Statistics both this semester. Am I insane for doing this? I haven't taken a math class since
    1989, but I would really like to finish these two courses. They are not required for TCC's nursing program, but I would like to get them out of the way since I want to get my BSN as soon as I finish my RN. Sorry for all the questions, but I'm very nervous about taking this class. Thanks.

    This is just a friendly suggestion, but you might garner more responses if you also post this very same question in the Texas Nurses Forum. After all, many TCC students spend more time over there than they do here.

    I had Ms. Tucker. She was pretty good. :spin:

    They have a specialized text for TCC that a lot of instructors use. I happen to have one for sale if you or anyone you know needs it. It was $100 new and the bookstore is no longer buying texts back that have/had internet codes. Ms. Tucker offers the needed codes to her students every semester though, so it seems like a new bookstore scam. UGH Anyhow, if you need the book and are interested in used I am more than happy to make you a great deal.

    Powers-Prathers teaches statistics there and is a nurse educator at El Centro. I just took the dosage math class from her and she seemed pretty good!

    I also had Ms. Tucker and I thought she was wonderful.
