It was a difficult course for me. I have not taken a Math course in several years. SL was definately the way to do it! I took my time and didn't move on until I knew the topic. I would recommend SL to anybody, especially students that are considering enrolling in an online college/university. It was a great way to practice managing my time and adjusting to learning independently.

To tell you the truth, the topics in this class was fun. It was also fairly easy for me since I've taken the course before in undergrad. But I'm quite disappointed on the final and the quizzes. Some of the quizzes questions are poorly written. Signs and pictures were missing from the quizzes. Some of the quizzes were graded incorrectly. This was also true with the finals. I have a very difficult time contacting the professor. At the very least the professor should be available for questions.

I like that I could study for a topic then take a quiz just like a regular college course, only without the tedious assignments and long wait times between taking tests. If I felt I really knew something I could take the exam that day. If I didnt I could continue to study with no pressure until I understood the material.

I liked the fact that it is purely self-paced because I am one of those students who have to read things repeatedly before the information is grasped and will still have trouble with the information.

I must admit this course was a bit boring for me. There was nothing wrong with the course format or delivery at all. It was just that I found myself struggling with the textbook sometimes because I couldn't get into it. It's hard to relate to a course when you aren't really into it. I did get through it though and I passed so I am happy.

I think my experience was partly my fault, because i had never taken an online course and Business Statistics was one that i should have never taken online. I was never able to use my free tutoring hours because I could never get on the Black board. All of the quizes that I took, I wanted to get the answers so that I could review and see what I did wrong, which I think would have been extremely helpful to me. I would have never and do not know anyone that I would have shared the answers with.
