TESU - Upper Level Computer Science Course Advice
#1
Hello,

I was trying to use the search feature but am having a lot of difficulty.  So I figured I would just ask.

I need 3 upper level computer science courses outside of Management Information Systems.

One course will be Systs Analy/Dsgn   Is the SDC the cheapest and easiest method of attaining the credit for this course?  

I need another 2 upper level courses that are cheap and easy.  Any advice for upper level?


Lastly, any suggestion on an easy and cheap lower level course? 
I have a few ACE credits from TEEX via TEEX-0279 and TEEX-0277, which I believe should qualify. but any other advice would be appreciated.

First off: the courses with what appears to be the letter grade of "A" after them, are those exams or credits from an actual school? I am very confused about the numbers you have written after everything. It looks like you only have exams. You're going to need 24 RA credits + the capstone & cornerstone for a TESU degree. The cheapest sources for those credits would be TEL Learning, Olivet Nazarene University, or TECEPs. 

Now, to answer your actual question(s), SDC is the only alternate source of Sys Analysis & Design. That makes it both the cheapest and the easiest by default! It only has one (relatively) easy assignment to complete. 

As for which UL courses to take, there are a limited number of UL credits available via alternate sources. See this wiki page: https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Sa...egree_Plan
In progress:

Looks like you need: 

Study.com
302 Systems Analysis and Design
303 Database Management

Then either TECEP Network Tech CMP-354 or a TESU course such as Software Engineering would be the easiest.

If you are doing the 16cr Flat Rate Tuition at TESU, then you may as well just take Software Engineering at TESU.  Took me 20hrs to complete that course.  The course was pretty technical and dry, but it was all papers, no tests, I got an easy A in it.

TECEP takes a while to study for and looks like you are good at test-taking.  You need that official book they recommend since the questions are based on that exact book.  Plan on 30-40 hrs to study for that test.

For Lower Level courses, you could take:
Study.com 304 network system design  (comes in as LL, won't overlap CMP-354)

This would be a good option if you take the TECEP CMP-354 since there will be nothing more to learn by taking this course.  Though this course is easy to pass either way.

To reiterate another point. You can take a TESU course for the last 3 or take the TECEP. I ended up taking both CIS 351 - Software Engineering and CMP 354 - Network Technology (the course not the Tecep). If you want any info regarding the courses let me know. I found the Network Technology course to be far easier than the TECEP.

(06-23-2021, 01:54 AM)Currently taking Systems Analysis and Design. It is a moderate course with written assignments, discussions, and quizzes. Don\t know if taking it with study.com will be easier. Wrote: Hello,

I will like to know more about CIS 351.
