This is what I would do as well, the InstantCert credit courses are just $20, plus $15/proctor exam.  CSM is non-proctored and just $35, (10% off if you sign up with newsletter, it'll be $31 for 3 credits).  Sophia.org would be best for those that don't have touchstones, you can get the credits faster.  You can then take the ones with touchstones when you have decided on the degree or school of choice.  Last but not least are Saylor.org, Onlinedegree.com, LawShelf.com courses if you're going the Excelsior or TESU route as OD/LS are using NCCRS...


CSM is next on my list. For InstantCert and everything else, I don't have anywhere to take a proctored online test. I'm thinking of trying a folding chair and one of those folding meal tray tables in my living room. Would anyone have any advice on taking proctored tests in limited space?

You probably don't need Khan Academy to pass it. I understand that math can be difficult for some people, but you needn't be afraid of Sophia's Algebra.

Are you talking about Foundations of College Algebra, which is expired? I used to be pretty good at algebra, and the regular College Algebra course was my most time-consuming Sophia course, a full 8-hour+ day.

College Algebra took me over 3 weeks! Thought I was never going to make it.


I thought College Algebra has a lot of the same math as Intro to College? Intro to College Math took me a couple weeks to finish because I really struggled with all the graphing equations, slopes, and linear equations. Those look like they're included in College Algebra's units?

LOL, I've done that a few times. On the counter, I took out everything and placed it in the tub. It was so clean for all 4 corners and the back of the door, nothing in the way. Never got flagged for anything, I sat on the toilet and did the exams. There was a time, I did two exams back to back, no issues what so ever.
