    Cool Passed Analyze + Interpret Lit! Easy 6 Credits!

    Hey all! Took my first CLEP today and I must say, it was pretty difficult (didn't do but 25 questions on Peterson's). I was not sure at the end, but I scored a 61! It is A&I Lit, but whatever, yay!

    Next tests I will be taking... No order, but please recommend something or provide tips if you have taken any of them.

    Principles of Management
    Introductory Psychology
    Human Growth and Development
    West Civ I
    West Civ II
    Principles of Supervision DSST
    Tech Writing DSST
    Human Resource Management DSST
    College Math (BACKUP)

    Any pass is cause for celebration! Congratulations.

    Technical Writing is supposed to be a breeze. I'm prepping for it right now, and I can tell that my total prep time will be in the single digits. There is ample info on this forum; just search DSST Technical Writing . The test is probably passable cold, but I just don't have quite big enough cajones to try it (read: I can't afford not to pass).

    Also, I would suggest doing the Supervision and Management in tandem. There will be a lot of overlap of material, and it strikes me that time-management protocol would call for combined prep. Just my opinion. I haven't taken either, but both are on my list as well, and I do have my prep material for both.

    If you can get Maniac on here, I think he is prepping (or has just finished) Western Civ I&II, so he may have some current info for you.

    Good luck on them all!

    Thanks! I will be taking Principles of Management here on Friday! I just got 24 credits left and hopefully 21 after this test! Definitely going to choose the easiest CLEPs I can for my "BS Degree" so I can get a decent job while I work towards a quality degree :)

    If you're looking for easy, I would suggest Marketing . I just took it yesterday and scored a 76. I do have some background in sales, and that helped, I believe, but the concepts were very basic: demographic, target markets, sales approaches, etc...

    Just my 2c.

    Definitely here too! I payed a lot of attention in marketing ... which makes me unsure as to whether they will accept credit for it. Anyways, West Civ I and II are totally for history channel buffs, but what movies would be good for me to watch? I am not horrible with history , but specific dates and times may be difficult. Any ideas?

    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    Draygonia,

    If you're a history buff, the Western Civ I and II exams are pretty easy pickings. I used a general history of Europe that I picked up on sale at Barnes and Noble (pretty sure it was Norman Davies's Europe: A History) to get ready for the exam, any broad overview type book that covers the time period of the exam should get you there relatively well-prepared. Good luck!

    My 16 year old passed A&I Lit with a 55. No special study other than completing two REA tests, one Peterson's test, and the College Board's sample test.

    Analyzing Lit is the best CLEP to start. I figure I'll have my son take it in another year or so, he's 14 now.
