Easiest calculus exam?
#1
I think I'm going to fail Study.com Calculus by a half a percentage point. Where is the easiest place to take Calculus? Besides the CLEP.

Study.com is as easiest as you can get. Just practice man and don't be lazy. Take your time and work through the rules and you will pass. You can supplement study.com with khan academy and straighterline calculus. The key is to get different perspectives. Before you take it again I HIGHLY recommend you look at these videos:

There is no "half assing" calculus. Just practice and learn take a month of just practicing questions and you'll pass easily.

The problem with the Study.com course is the scope of it. I was doing better on the practice exams, so I thought I was ready because I only needed ~60%, but I missed the exam score by 1 question! If I would have gotten one extra question right, this wouldn't be an issue. It's meant for 6 credits of Calculus and I've worked very hard on it, but I am having trouble remembering everything. There are also a few things that I'm struggling to remember for more than two days.

So, I don't want to spend another ~$70. I might try to do the Saylor course instead, but I think that test will be harder. I thought there might be cheaper alternative somewhere else.

Sometimes the answer is to just go back, do it over again and get the last point. That's what I had to do with the Straighterline programming class. I missed by a couple of points and just had to go back and do the class again. It sucks. Saylor is almost never the answer.

Did you already max out your points on the quizzes? I.e. are there any that you haven't used all 3 attempts and don't yet have a perfect score?

Yes, I redid about 30 quizzes and it didn't shift my grade because there are so many quizzes. An extra 30 points can be nothing.

That's what I was afraid someone would say. I may just do that in the end.

What's wrong with Straighterline? There are fewer quizzes.

I agree, SDC’s Calculus feels relatively easier. I started with Saylor, and changed to SDC half way as I found myself progressing through the lessons very slowly. Saylor course materials always tend to be voluminous. I also found their practice problems to be a little confusing. Khan academy was very helpful in reinforcing some Calculus concepts. My suggestion would be to identify your weak areas, use khan academy for those concepts alone, and attempt SDC calculus exam once again.
