Cost Per Credit is the – don’t make this hard – cost you pay per college credit when you take a course (or test out of a course). For instance, at Thomas Edison State College the Cost Per Credit (or the CPC) is $221. Most colleges are much more expensive than that.
That’s why it pays to test out of courses. When you take a CLEP (or a DANTES) exam you get to skip that course. And with a CLEP exam your CPC is a mere $26. Does it get better than that?
Just make sure your college accepts CLEPs!
I have made a discovery.
I use the computer a lot during the day. I do research on it, I take tests on it, I read emails on it, I edit movies on it, and I create webpages.
I do not like the computer very much. And I do not like computer programing at all. I do not understand it. It is a foreign language. One that I do not speak.
That is all.
Now that we are clear on that.
I will go back to studying Information Systems and Computer Applications now.
Here are three random facts for your day!
- The last CLEP I took (U.S.History 1) was my first 3 credit CLEP to take. I just realized that.
- When you take a CLEP and you reach the end of the test… and you get to review. Only check the questions you are REALLY unsure about. 90% of the time your first answer (or your “gut answer”) is the correct answer.
- For those of you wondering, I did not take Information Systems and Computer Applications. I am not ready for it. I just can not get my score up. I would appreciate prayer as I hit the books hard. Many students will be taking finals next week and the week after. My “finals” are in 4 weeks… and I’m nervous!
There you go!
Yes, yes. I know it is April 23 and I am just now blogging. I had already planned on taking a break for April, but I did mean to tell you about it. Then I got the worst sinus infection of my life. Incidentally the only sinus infection of my life. I did nothing for a week but lay on my back and cry and run fever. Pitiful. But I’m back now! Here with CLEPing news, tips, and updates.
- To place my bulk wheat order with people across my state. (done, it is on the way here. All 5,000 lbs)
- To write a blog series on scheduling and getting your priorities straight with school and family (done, you can read it here)
- To interview a college graduate and friend of the family, Mr. Daniel Phillips. (done, you can read that here)
- Prepare for the Information Systems and Computer Applications CLEP (ummm….)
- Continue preparing for the Information Systems and Computer Applications CLEP
- Blog some general CLEP overview posts with tips and information (I’ve had lots of questions)
After I take this CLEP in May, I will be taking a break from testing for a couple of months while I pray, reassess, and look at my future and where I want to go. I will not stop blogging, and look forward to some good series and interviews as we move into the summer months.
