Repost: A Necessary Argument

Repost: A Necessary Argument

Here’s a repost , since I’m busy studying.  🙂   One of the favorite things people tell me when I try and explain the way I’m doing college is… “Well, how are you ever going to find a spouse that way?  I met my husband/wife at college!” Now I have NOTHING against meeting your spouse at college.  My parents met at college.  It’s a great place to meet guys and gals. But if that’s the ONLY reason I’m going to…

Three tests, 6 essays, and 200 people

Three tests, 6 essays, and 200 people

My life is just a little bit crazy here, and I miss writing on my blog.  🙂  I can’t wait for the cool fall days when we leave the windows open and the leaves are pretty colors.  The season when we go camping, and I have my birthday, and life seems easier to deal with.  And I’ll be back to blogging more regularly, with helpful information.  For now… 3 Tests I have 3 tests I am trying to do before…

Update and CLEP help

Update and CLEP help

I am still studying for Principles of Management this week.  I scored a 60 on my practice test today, which is awesome!!!  (especially considering all the questions I was surprised at)  As I said, it got moved to August 2 at 10:00.  Which means I have 14 days to keep studying. And 21 days until the Film Festival… which is a scary thought.  But I digress. CLEP Help: What does it cost and How do you pay? A CLEP exam…

CLEP Pass Rate – How Smart Are You?

CLEP Pass Rate – How Smart Are You?

You can use the chart below to gauge where you stand, according to other test takers.  The far right column is the pass rate for 2012 of the corresponding CLEP exam. For instance, I was able to pass English Lit, which only 23% of test takers pass.  And who is brave enough to try Chemistry, which has the wonderful reputation of only passing 6% of test takers!!! Where is your CLEP on here, did you do really well on a…

Scholarship Hunt

Scholarship Hunt

If anyone out there is looking for a good resource to find Scholarships, I would recommend using Fastweb.  You fill out a questionnaire about you and your school accomplishments, and then you get matched with available scholarships.  If you have a specific college in mind, that’s even better. And if you sign up through my link, I get some kickback towards a scholarship.  😉  

Update on Management

Update on Management

I took a practice test and made a 71!  Yay! And my CLEP lady called, and rescheduled my test for August 2.  Hmm…   And I found a really interesting chart that I can’t wait to share with you, as soon as I get it uploaded.  🙂

Schedule, Schedule, Schedule

Schedule, Schedule, Schedule

If you are studying for your CLEP or DANTES exam, and you are having a hard time concentrating, here is the way to study. Call your test proctor and set a date.  It’s as simple as that.  With a deadline staring at you, you will be amazed at how study time flies by.   🙂 Speaking of which, I have a test on July 26 (Principles of Management).  I’d better go study!

The New Majority – Helpful Tip

The New Majority – Helpful Tip

If you are applying for a scholarship (or anything else where you have to give your status as a student), do not choose College Student unless you are a full time student, enrolled in a 2 or 4 year university. If you are CLEPing, taking Distance Courses, a student of CollegePlus, or anything else on your own, select “Adult Learner” or “Adult Student” or “Non-Traditional Student”.   Even if you are 14, this is still your best option. If you select…
