Study.com order of classes for computer science
#1
Computer Science 105: Introduction to Operating Systems
Computer Science 302: Systems Analysis & Design
Computer Science 303: Database Management
Computer Science 306: Computer Architecture
Discrete Math

I'm getting ready to take these courses at Study.com, but I'm trying to figure out whether I should take a similar Saylor course first to prepare because it will be difficult to cram each course into two weeks.

Though, data structures may be coming, I can always pause the membership to avoid taking only one course in a one-month period.

Also, does anyone know if this coupon works for everyone http://www.finance.umich.edu/treasury/mc...t-studycom

Or is it better to have an affiliate code requested from a member here on the forum?

FYI, you can't pause the SDC subscription in the middle of your cycle. When you pause it begins at the end of the current monthly cycle. So you will lose the second free exam in the month if you don't use it.

That coupon code (umichstudent) seems to work for 20% off the College Accelerator plan.  It even says that it's valid for three months.  "Discount: -20% for three months"

To compare, the referral codes are for 20% off the first month only.

I'm taking those courses as well. I scored in the 60's on the practice tests for Intro to Operating systems and Systems Analysis and Design and was able to complete all the quizzes for both of those courses in a week (with 100%). With 100% on the quizzes you only need 55% on the final exam or the final exam and project (Systems Analysis and Design has a 2000 word report). I am working as a full time student, 5-6 days a week. Database Management is going a bit slower for me.

I've also taken the Saylor Intro to Computer Science course.

I also looked at that. Human Computer Interactive Design and Web Design and Development were the biggest question marks for me. There might be some other courses in there. Web Design and Development could probably be taken at a community college like in this example they have:

https://www.excelsior.edu/wp-content/upl...o_Tech.pdf

That pdf is from 2017.

Otherwise, if 'data structures' becomes available somewhere, you may just need the SOS-110 and capstone for TESU + the residency fee. Though some other courses like Intro to Programming and upper level course(s) have been troublesome for people. I'm not sure what you have already.

I'm dragging my feet a bit. At the same time, I don't want to wait for something to -- or not to -- happen. I may end up just transferring to WGU and eating whatever courses don't transfer. I don't mind because the computer science studies are something I want to ready about anyway.

I found some challenge exams to full fill the BSIT of Excelsior 
Human Computer Interactive Design & [i]Web Design and Development [/i]
Take a look at the list and you will see  Big Grin at a lower cost.
