INTRO TO STATISTICS: Harvard Extension or UCLA Extension

Hi there,
I hope someone can give me some insight. I am trying to fulfill a pre-req to apply for Grad school. I need an introductory Statistics course. I will be taking it online. I suck at Math and am wondering if anyone has taken either the Stat E-100 class through Harvard or the X 402 at UCLA. Harvard is costly but I am wanting one that might be useful for someone who has a humanities background in undergrad. Thanks for your advice and help. I am kinda panicking.

    Why not an introductory statistics course at your local community college that is likely less expensive if you are worried about cost?

    I did think of that. But there are all the pre-reqs that go into taking a course at a community college. Thanks for replying, I appreciate the advice.

    A typical introductory statistics course at a typical community college only requires intermediate algebra or high school algebra 2 as a prerequisite. Even if the extension courses do not list explicit prerequisites, it is likely that they assume at least that level of math when teaching statistics.

    Some introductory statistics courses require calculus as a prerequisite, but these should say so.

    there are plenty of other colleges that offer online courses. For example, Arizona State University.

    UCLA is awesome at statistics education and making it very accessible to everyone, take it there especially if it is less expensive.
