Principles of Marketing CLEP update

Principles of Marketing CLEP update

I passed!  I passed Principles of Marketing today with a 60!  I am so excited to be through with that and moving on to my next test.  😉 There were several questions today that I saw on my practice test for Management (coming up).  And I wouldn’t have known the answers to them if I had not been already studying.  Hopefully I will see some Marketing on the Management test!!!  All Glory be to the One who made me!

Marketing CLEP update

Marketing CLEP update

Well, I’m still studying for the Principles of Marketing CLEP.  I’m scheduled for this Friday at 10:00.  Yesterday I scored a 61 on my practice test, which was REALLY good. Supposedly, Marketing is one of the easiest CLEPs, but I think that has a lot to do with what you enjoy doing.  For instance, I loved taking College Composition and College Math (two opposite tests, huh?) and so I scored well on them.  While I enjoy Marketing, and I’m learning…

Is Internet Marketing changing our world…

Is Internet Marketing changing our world…

…or has it already happened?  This is an essay I wrote for the VacationRoost scholarship award of 2013.

These are examples of internet marketing and…

Not Sure Where to Start?

Not Sure Where to Start?

It seems pretty typical.   College students don’t know what to study.  It’s okay.  It’s the way God designed it.  You don’t know where you will be in 2 years or 6 years, so how do you know what to study in college?  Should you study a specific thing, or go general?  If you have an interest in medicine, should you go ahead and do the pre-med?  And what about businesses, what are they looking for?  It is okay to go…

What to do with your CLEP score

What to do with your CLEP score

With a few exceptions because of essays, all CLEP tests are automatically scored.  You walk out of the test room with your score, knowing if you passed or failed.  Personally, I find that much more freeing than waiting weeks in limbo – wondering.  But what do you do with your score?  Do you send it to a college?  Do you keep it?  What if you want it later?  Here are some ideas. Option #1 – CLEPing after enrolling in a…

How to pass your CLEPs

How to pass your CLEPs

What should you do the day of your CLEP?  Here are 10 tips to make your CLEP test go well! Write down and take the phone number of your proctor.  If you get stuck in traffic, or are late for another reason, let her know.  A legitimate reason for being late will be much nicer than just not showing up. Write down and take the address of the building where your test is. Don’t be late because you went to…
