If you are going to TESU, I would recommend taking the CSMLearn as a great place to start and build your confidence in your math skills. It should meet the Stats/Quantitative Business Skills Math requirement for the Business degree.
For Principles of Accounting and Microeconomics onlinedegree would be the cheapest option and I've heard these courses are fairly straight forward. SDC would probably be my second choice.
For Macroeconomics I would use SDC.
For Business Stats and everything else I would recommend SL or SDC.

It all depends on which school you're going to get your degree from, I think you're going with TESU right? My recommendation would be to take some at the usual providers, namely Study.com and Straighterline - both for ease, pass rate, and simplicity.

You can try other recommended ACE providers, I would check each course syllabus to verify it's for you. Straighterline business courses have an open book exam, so it'll be easier to pass. Study.com is great as they break things down into smaller chunks, the final exam and assignments are manageable as well.

You're right. I'm looking at TESU, COSC and WGU. Thanks for the headsup about SL exams being open book.

WOW, LOL, Shadowgem beat me by a minute! BTW, if you're applying to WGU - they will not accept NCCRS which means, no Coopersmith, Davar, Onlinedegree.com, etc. They will accept ACE credits though, so any ALEKS, Sophia, StraighterLine, Study.com, etc will work just fine.

And finally, since you've hit these schools, if you've taken any SL/Study.com courses, Excelsior College has a free application for admissions, apply to all of the Big 3 and WGU (also has free applications) to see who provides you the most amount of credits transferred and decide then which school fits your needs most.

If you take at least 2 SDC courses, you will qualify for an in-state tuition discount at TESU. So you will probably want to take at least two courses from there in case you decide to attend TESU. The ACE evaluation for the SDC statistics course expires on 11/30/19. Some prefer that course because it is more theory than math. Sophia is another great option for statistics. I would probably choose SDC/Sophia over SL for macro/micro.

At TESU, you can use the CSMLearn course to meet the mathematics (stats/quantitative business skills) requirement. However COSC should bring the CSMLearn course in as a Free Elective in Liberal Arts, so it will not meet the statistics requirement there. I am not sure how it would transfer into WGU. It's possible it could meet the Quantitative Analysis for Business requirement, but you would want to check with your enrollment adviser prior to taking it to be sure it would fit into your degree plan at WGU.

WGU will not accept courses that are from NCCRS evaluated providers. So you will probably want to stick to ACE only providers until you are sure which school you are attending. Onlinedegree is an NCCRS provider.

If you take at least at least 4 straighterline courses, you will qualify for scholarship benefits at either WGU or COSC. WGU will credit give you a credit of $50 tuition for up to 4 courses (so max benefit of $200) and you will get a scholarship of $500 off each term. COSC will discount your tuition and fees by 10%. So I would plan at least 4 SL courses. Here is a link for the Straighterline Exam Formats where you can see which courses are open book and what materials are allowed during your exams there.

Wow, this is a wealth of information. I truly appreciate it. Thanks!  Smile

Thank you very much for the NCCRS tip and about Excelsior's free application. I considered them but wanted to limit the app feesI pay this month since I want to spend the bulk of it on testing. Thank you again. I recently took advantage of WGUs free application but halted the process so I could complete a few math courses before they do a credit evaluation.
