    Good evening:

    What CLEP exams would you recommend to fulfill the requirement of social sciences? (It is for an associates in science in technology)
    Should I take the social sciences/history exam for 6 credits, or should choose psychology and sociology for 3 credits each. I was told the latter exams are much easier.
    What CLEP exams fall under the category arts and science electives? I need 3 credits.
    It also says I need 3 credits in humanities (other than writing). There is a CLEP test for humanities but that's 6 credits. Is there one for just 3?
    I noticed that Spanish 2 was listed under humanities for a total of 12 credits provided the score is 63 or higher. Can Spanish 2 be used to fulfill humanities for example?

    I am not testing on college algebra or mathematics:yikes:

    I apologize for asking so many questions!

    Thank you in advance.

    It will depend in part on the receiving schools policy. Where are you seeking this degree?

    Yes, the college makes a difference! Doesn't it?
    I apologize for not providing this info from the beginning.
    Excelsior college.
    Originally, I was going to enroll at university of Phoenix (I get a big discount through my employer); however, this is no longer the case. The only courses you can CLEP out of are college composition and psychology.

    That was much more than I intended to share:)

    Thank you for your prompt response!
