    Default Statistics - Saylor VS Jumpcourse VS Pearson

    I'm enrolled at CSU Global officially as of today! I completed statistics at a university in the past (It was hard, with linear regression, and all sorts of advanced topics). Since it was more than 10 years old they took my stats as a General Elective and I have to take it again for Gen Ed

    CSU global takes Alternative Credit Project Sources and they specially list these as options for stats:
    Mathematical Concepts Introduction to Statistics ACPE-0017 Saylor
    Mathematical Concepts Introduction to Statistics ACPE-0032 JumpCourse
    Mathematical Concepts Statistics ACPE-0014 Pearson

    Is there anyone here that has taken courses at all of these? I've heard Saylor can have a lot of dead links and test questions not in the study material, etc. I've heard Pearson is expensive but they don't use proctored exams. I don't know anything about JumpCourse.

    If anyone has feedback on which is the best to take of these 3 I'd appreciate it.

    I have read somewhere that Saylor may be a little difficult, but doable. I myself plan to take statistics and might go this route. I would go check it out.

    It appears Pearson / Propero is not available. When I look at purchasing the course here Propero Statistics 3.0
    it says not available.

    I took Saylor's Business Statistics and found it difficult. I did not take their intro to statistics course, I used ALEKS for that. If that course regains ACE certification, I highly recommend it. The teaching method at ALEKS worked great for me, and I like the assessment approach.

    If she's taking it through her CC, then she'll get her credit through the school, and won't need the ACE credit at all.
