So, I just cleaned up the PM's from well over 600+ down to a wonderful number of 21...
Plans for the day (getting over this flu), I'm going to clean up the house and garage!  
Getting rid of all that junk!  What's new with you?  Anyway, have a great one.
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

Well I had a Financial Management exam yesterday and got my score back today of a 145/150! Other than that, grinding away looking forward to my vacation in 3 weeks!

Today I started my next TESU course: nuclear instrumentation and controls. The first half of the class looks good, stuff I'm pretty familiar with. The second half looks like material that's mostly new to me or previously known but now completely forgotten (damn that knowledge/learning half life!)

Also, I enrolled in the ASU Earned Admissions calculus 1 for engineers that starts next month. Even though I already have calc 1 credit, I wanted an intensive review plus it'll be far more rigorous than what I did with SDC. I liked the looks of its self paced format using the gradarius platform. For only $25 I get the same quality instruction/access to online professors/tutors that ASU students get. Plus when I pass, I'll have 1 year to decide if I want to pay for RA credit(probably won't need to but it doesn't hurt to have options in case I want to transfer or go to a grad school that wants to see more RA credit.) Also, one final reason is a personal matter: that is exactly same course number as the calc course I dropped out of way back when I was 18 and attending on campus at asu. I now know that conventional, b&m, on campus, lecture based learning doesn't work for me but I will have a sense of accomplishment for completing something I gave up on nearly a decade ago.

Thank you!

I filled out the form to enroll in the ASU College Algebra for basically the same reasons as you, except that I know I'm trying to rack up RA/graded credit (otherwise, I'm pretty sure it uses ALEKS so I would just do that). Waiting to hear back from them. So even though I already did the CLEP I'll probably end up paying for the RA credit as long as I like my grade. I'm thinking of doing Precalculus as well, since it's got ongoing enrollment, same benefits in terms of cheap, graded RA credit and I don't have anything for Precalc yet so it would help out with GE electives and the AoS for my ASNSM in Math that I want to get.

If I think of it as "paying $425 for ALEKS", I feel stupid. But when I think of it as "paying $425 for a letter-graded, RA course that also happens to be self-paced" it seems like a much better deal. Plus, if I don't like my grade I can a) save $400 and b) Not have it show on a transcript.

Interesting that you say the Calc course looks to be self-paced. I believe I saw in the FAQs that College Algebra and Precalc were "supposed" to be the only self-paced ones. From what you can see, does it look like it requires some engineering-type scientific knowledge, or is it mostly just a generic Calc course?

It's a 15 week course that must be completed within that time constraint but other than that, it's self paced and adaptive. I asked them a lot of questions regarding the different courses the other day and that's my understanding of it. It's still just a generic calc course, maybe with more engineering based examples and a little more rigorous than other options.

They also have business/brief calc course that uses the same gradarius platform.
