General I am working on cleaning my room, packing away FF stuff, and dusting off school books.  I’ve always done school year round (lighter during the summer, but some school).  This is really the first time I remember putting away my books for a few months and not looking at them.   I really love pulling them back out now and getting ready to use them!  I am planning out my remaining CLEPs before I launch into course work in 2013….

College Mathematics ONCE AGAIN, my CLEP got moved!  🙂 As of today, I’ll be taking my test on Tuesday, May 15 at 10:00 am.  I scored a 64 on the REA practice test #1 today. I’m buckling down on Logic, Functions, and Probability Social Sciences Like always, as I get closer to my #1 test, I do less and less of my #2 test! I’m still reading the Comex guide. 🙂

I had to reschedule my test for the 16 of May, instead of the 11th.  That gives me a few more days. Social Sciences I continue to read my…
