It's great to finally be here! I've been lurking for a while now. And I've been trying to create an account for several weeks, but that function appears to have been broken. The upgrade fixed it, so now I'm here! I'm 53 years old, and attended college in the late 1970's. I changed my major a bunch of times and eventually dropped out, with 96 hours earned but all of them in 100 and 200 level courses. Two years ago I started the External Programme of the University of London. For me, that was a big mistake. London has a good program for those who can do it, but they don't provide any instruction, just a study guide and a list of textbooks. I was able to do very well in the Statistics courses but was not able to pass the first math course. After failing that course twice, I decided it was time to try a different approach. I'm now taking Calculus I at the local community college, and next semester I'll take Calc II. My plan is to apply for the math program at University of Illinois Springfield. So far in Calc I we've had two quizzes and one exam, and I've scored an A on all of them. Before starting the U of L program, I took pre-calculus, Microeconomics, and Database Management at the community college and got an "A" in all of them. The microeconomics and database classes were both online, so I know I can do well in that format.
