    CLEP/DANTES tests

    I have been reading past messages on CLEP & DANTES tests, but wanted to know what people thought about these specific tests that I'm considering taking.

    CLEP: Sociology
    DANTES: Principles of Physical Science I
    DANTES: Money & Banking

    I am an Accounting major, so the 1st two scare me a little.

    Also, my friend is considering the CLEP Principles of Management if anyone has a feeling on that one.

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated (especially if you calm my nerves by telling me how easy they are!) :D

    Re: CLEP/DANTES tests

    Of the twenty or so test that I had taken, CLEP: Sociology was the easiest of all. A great study guide is from REA


    I also took money and banking and failed by about 3-4 points, I guess I should have studied.

    Good luck.

    beware!

    That Money and Banking sucker is tougher than it looks. I passed with the minimum passing score. Hit fed reserve and it's policies.

    Sociology is very easy.
    Good luck,
    Mike

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the input. From what I had seen on the board, it looked like Sociology was pretty easy, but I wanted reassured. The only CLEP I have taken before is the Accounting. I spend 1 1/2 days going over chapter summaries of 2 accounting books and I got an A on the test, but I already had some experience, so that helped. The only reason that I hadn't been as scared on Money & Banking is because I've had 3 Economics classes and a Finance class. Mike, how long did you prepare for that one? Since these are all electives, I'd hate to study too much! :p Randell, thanks for the link!

    Sociology too about 3 days of study. Money and Banking should take at least a week. I only studied three days for this as well but I would not of suffered so if I had put in a bit more time.

    I was wrong when I said the Sociology test was the easiest. The DANTES Heres to Your Health was the easiest.

    If they are for electives, some other easy ones are -
    DANTES Tech Writing
    DANTES Intro to Business
    DANTES Intro to Computing
    DANTES Intro to Criminal Justice
    DANTES Intro to Law Enforcement
    DANTES MIS

    I did not study for any of these exams. Hope this helps.

    What degree are you going for?
    What school?

    I am studying for CLEP Intro Psychology and thought it would not be too difficult. But for some reason cant seem to finish off the the study material. Its been 2 weeks so far and I am not prepared. I find it quite challenging so far. Not sure about others.

    I think I may switch to Sociology for now and start preparing for that instead.

    I'm a senior in Accounting at Kansas State. The only one of those listed that would transfer to something I need is Intro to Law Enforcement (which I know nothing about). Is it really that easy that you don't have to study?

    The test really is that easy. Some have posited the Cliff Notes for Criminal Justice are helpfull. I used them, but there was not much in the Cliff Notes that I did not already know from watching the news and Cops on TV :D.
