Course Suggustion for Students

Hi guys! No have an idea for a new series of courses, aimed in particular at students (like myself) studying to get a BA Computer Science degree.

As you might know, Precalc, Calculus 1, and Calculus 2 are all but required for this degree. Luckily, if I already have prior knowlage if this subject, I could simply take a DSST or CLEP test to get credit in this area, and then move on. Unfortunately, the alternative online courses (non-campus) for these tests that are out there are expensive, and are not designed to be fast-paced (okay, ALEXS is an exception, but it still requires a subscription per course).

My idea is a simple one. Create courses for Precalc, Calculus 1, and Calculus 2. Ideally this would be aimed at people studying for a Computer Science degree, with the CLEP/DSST tests in mind, but I think that other Treehouse members might want to study it too.

I don't think this really fits Treehouse's niche of Web & App Development.

I think Khan Academy or coursera might be a better fit for this course.

There's also:

But... but... but Treehouse is so much prettier!

Thanks for the links :)

Khan Academy was re-designed a while back so it's almost as pretty as Treehouse. But yeah you are right about the others :wink:

Khan and the iTunes U section are your friend.
