Macroeconomics

I’m really a very laid back personality, very little gets me worked up.  But I have opinions on a few topics. And don’t get me started about Macroeconomics. I have a few opinions on macroeconomics, and the CLEP exam, and how our country’s economy is in trouble.  But I’m going to remain passive aggressive on this, and just laugh at the cartoon above.  It pretty much sums up how “Macro” works! CLEP Test Update: I scored a 75% on my…

Update on Goals for the Week

Update on Goals for the Week

So, I’m studying for four tests at the same time.  Last week I took a practice test for each subject, after letting them to push through and finish Algebra.   Anyway, here are the results. Statistics – took an assessment and scored at 23%.  Wonderful news for someone who doesn’t have a clue about statistics. Sociology – 49%.  Again, thrilled that with no studying that’s my score Ethics in America – 40%.  Not my strong point.  If it was Biblical…

Macro Studying

You know, when I see a question like this on my Macroeconomics exam, I have to wonder.  Does the government really want to lower the inflation rate? Just wondering.  🙂

Economics, Algebra, and Sociology… oh my!

Economics, Algebra, and Sociology… oh my!

Economics, Algebra, and Sociology… oh my! Macroeconomics CLEP continues to go well.  I scored a 66% on my practice test, CollegePlus tells you to go take it when you reach a 60%.  I wanted to take it this month, but the Christmas season around this place is crazy and it didn’t fit in the schedule.  So, I’m hanging on to it through the holidays and taking it in January.  Possibly on the 10th… Sociology CLEP is so “politically correct” it…

Studying Today

I made a 47 on my Macro practice test today.  I really wanted to take this test on December 9th, but obviously that score isn’t great.  I’m trying to study really hard, and retest on Monday.  From there I plan on making a decision for when to schedule my test. I’m using Contemporary Economics, the REA testbook, and TrailMarker . What are you studying?

Finishing Up the Old Year

Finishing Up the Old Year

School I am studying for College Algebra, Macroeconomics, Sociology, and Ethics in America right now.  Some more that others, depending on when I want to schedule them, but they are all coming up here pretty quickly.  I would like to be done with economics and algebra before the close of the year.  Economics will be easy to fit in, but Algebra will depend on ALEKs getting accredited again.   So I’m buying books for my bookshelf, and planning out the…

Macroeconomics Review

Macroeconomics Review

Here is the promised post!  The overview of my first failed CLEP… hopefully some of this information will help you. God Reigns Before we being, let me restate… God reigns and He gets my praise whether I pass or fail.  However aggravating or frustrating it is to walk out of a test with no credits, I lean on the assurance that God is steering my steps and He is in control. Hidden Outcome I went into this CLEP not knowing…

Macroeconomics CLEP update

Macroeconomics CLEP update

The short answer is: I failed my first CLEP. With a 48. I want to write a longer post about my experience, but I’m brain dead right now.  🙂 Suffice to say I am trusting my Lord and Savior in His eternal and great plan.  My view of eternity is so small I can’t see how he works out my life. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil,…
