Advice - College Credits Please review the info on the degreeforum.wikia.com webpage for info. I have an online education guide. Here's the link to the Basic Approach - The Basic Approach - Degree Forum Wiki - Wikia I have a Beginners Guide in the forum as well, the info is more updated on the wikia page though. The NFA and TEEX courses are from schools affiliated with FEMA but have ACE recommendation for credit. FEMA by itself doesn't have ACE recommendation for the majority of their courses (All independent study). FEMA only has a select few that are ACE recommended but those are "onsite/on campus modules". NFA has 3 courses and 1 credit each = 3 credits total (easy, quick to finish) TEEX has 3 courses and 2 credits each = 6 credits (lengthy, time consuming to finish) Do the NFA first, then TEEX, with the course material open in one screen/window, and test open in another. My suggestion is not only to finish these easy courses for 9 credits. But if you have time and require Math courses. You should subscribe to ALEKS and get 5 courses done for $20 dollars/month, you can finish all 5 in 1 month!! The steps are in the guide, I did 5 courses in that one month for 15 easy credits and it cost me just $20 only. My other suggestion is, if you would like 9 credits cheap. Another option is to take 3 History courses at Shmoop.com Here's the thread: Low cost ACE reviewed history courses from Shmoop.com One month subscription for $25, 3 courses can be completed in that time frame or faster. 9 easy non proctored credits. If you have more questions, please reply back. I highly suggestion spending just $20 on ALEKS and $25 on Shmoop! They are well worth that monthly subscription, if you aren't working, you can probably finish all of them in 1 month. If you are working, I would split it into two months, 1 for Shmoop first as their pricing may rise, and 1 month after for ALEKS. As they are non proctored, you can have "online calculators" for ALEKS, and you can have "other resources for Shmoop!". Last word: I know you are in a rush and also may be strapped for cash, but there are other cheap courses offered as well. These are the most recommended, and I also would recommend Saylor Academy for ACE credit. Each course is free, but there's a proctor fee $25 for final exam at ProctorU. Essentially, it's $25/3 credits, it's unbeatable in value and they have 22 courses!
