There’s a new category on the side bar!!! Macroeconomics That’s right!!!  I’m taking a short, very short, few days off to collect books and resources, and celebrate Thanksgiving, then it’s back to studying.  🙂 I have Macroeconomics on the calendar for December 14th.  Join me as we study for this test!

Natural Science CLEP

Natural Science CLEP

I took and passed Natural Science today!  I passed with a 50… just squeezing in and managing to keep my “no fail” record.  I know they failing test is out there, somewhere! This exam contained a lot more information on cells than I was prepared for, and a ton on evolution.  I was not prepared for the evolution section at all.  Most of the terminology and history was unfamiliar to a Creationist student. How sad that a CollegeLevel test is…

October Updates and November Goals

October Updates and November Goals

October Updates My goals were to: Take Natural Sciences.  I couldn’t take it for many reasons, but I have moved it to November.  (see November goals) Prepare for American History 1 CLEP.  Since then I have changed my degree and the CLEPs to take.  I have put American History on hold for now.  I may take it later as an elective, but for now I have other CLEPS to take. Turn 19.  Well, I was able to do that!  🙂…
