I took both at Rio Salado and it was a lot of work. Most of my "lectures was the instructor basically retyping the text on the screen and giving you a list of websites to review (many links never worked.) Micro was probably the worst, my instructor was very immature at least her emails reflected that assumption. If you can get a class that is in-person I would say that would be better, don't get me wrong I learned what I needed to but I think the classroom setting would have been MUCH easier in comprehending all of this. Each week you will need to write Essays over selected topics and for your proctored midterms and finals it will be lots of multiple choice and a handful of essays.
Definitely look into what your school of choice accepts, some will not accept any of these courses from a distance learning curriculum. Good luck
