# Academic Credits Fast For Calculus

Some students are in a rush to earn some calculus credits.Perhaps you have been admitted to graduate school, but discover at the last minute that you need that one last calculus course to be completed.

Or perhaps you want to submit your applications to graduate school, and to boost those applications, you need to increase your calculus academic credits earned via real academic transcript. (Hint: just saying that you took a Coursera course doesn't get you very far with graduate schools!)

Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University is all about fast - as fast as your academic skills allow. We cannot cut corners for learning academic achievement, but our course curriculum can be completed very quickly if you are motivated (students under a heavy time crunch usually are very motivated) and you have the academic "chops" to get the job done fast.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: The course was intense and required a lot of hard work. Professors ready available to assist when needed. Professors presented and explained materials/course work in detail and provided explanations and resources.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: This course provided an excellent chance to learn about Calculus...again. I took calculus in high school, but I learned so much more with this course! It does take a good amount of time to do all the lessons, so definitely keep on top of them, but all the exercises helped me to really understand the material. And the nice thing is you can do it on your own time at home.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: This course is amazing! I took it as a requirement for admission to an MBA program, and couldn't have been happier with the quality and rigor of the course. I previously took calculus two times (at a public high school and then a large public university commonly cited as a "public ivy"), this course was by far the best and *finally* made the concepts click. Previously I had no idea what was going on because terrible PhD students were teaching the course and saying stuff like "a derivative is the slope of a tangent line" - ??? but what does that mean ???, but the instructors in the Shorter University course explain everything in ways where it FINALLY made sense (e.g., "imagine a roller coaster hitting the top of a hill, there's a moment where it shifts momentum and you're not accelerating or decelerating, that's what a 0 rate of change is - that's when the derivative would be zero"). They explain everything in multiple ways and relate it to other concepts. It all made perfect sense when I finally had a good instructor. Really recommend this class
