By God's Grace… I squeaked by!

By God's Grace… I squeaked by!

As a matter of fact, the majority of students will put…

Social Science CLEP: It’s hard to have to cancel a test. It’s really hard to cancel your second test because your first one isn’t up to par. But it’s hardest to fail a test.  And I don’t want to do that. I am renting the “Don’t Know Much About” series by Kenneth C.
