  1. Not sure if I am late to the party but I recently was told about a site that offers free full courses to prepare someone to sit for an AP or CLEP exam, whichever they choose. It's called modernstates.org. Their site says it is partnered with edx.com but they too offer courses for exam or certificate. Edx.com offers more courses and can also be for adults in certain fields to get certificates to show their employers or whatever. So my question is...if modern states is partnered with edx than what's the difference b/w the 2 for a high school student trying to test out of college freshman classes? Anyway, this seems too good to be true but I love that my student could take a full free course, take an AP exam, and earn credits, all for the price of the test! I can't afford AP classes and I was a little iffy about just studying for a CLEP exam b/c I really want my student to get full course learning. This seems like the answer. Anyone have any experience/info? I know all about checking with colleges first to see if they accept AP/CLEP so I don't need all that info, just info about these 2 sites. I am thinking of taking a course myself to test it out. I may sit for an exam afterwards, who knows. EDITED TO SAY: Sorry. I originally thought these were full courses but several ladies who have commented below have corrected my misunderstanding and they are TEST PREP courses. The modern states prep courses themselves say CLEP, not AP, but on their site it says these courses help prep for CLEP and AP so that is why I included AP in my description. Thx~
  2. In case you missed it, I'm the guy who started the "I'm 18 and Never Attended School" post on here about a month ago (which to my surprise has over 5K views on it...Damn.) I've basically decided to forego a GED and instead take the CLEP exams instead. According to at least one comment in my old post, if I do a years worth of college-level work at my local CC they will actually grant me the equivalent to a high school diploma, which would allow me to kill two birds with one stone; getting my HS diploma while also grinding away at college-level work. I picked up a book yesterday called "CLEP Official Study Guide" but it turns out that the book just has sample questions in it, it doesn't actually teach anything. So what I'm looking for in this post is basically just advice in general for doing the CLEP exams. What books to read, what courses to take, etc. Anything at all would be much appreciated, thank you all.
  3. 2 related questions regarding the DSST Principles of Physical Science exam #1. Is the amount of Physics knowledge needed for this exam significantly less than for either of the 2 Algebra-based AP Physics exams? [This (academic) year, the College Board split their old AP Physics B exam into 2 exams -- AP Physics 1, Algebra-Based and AP Physics 2, Algebra-Based.] #2. Is the amount of Chemistry knowledge needed for this exam signicantly less than for either the AP or CLEP Chemistry exams? Thanks. - RJ in Delaware
  4. Did you know some of the ALEKS.com courses are recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) for college credit? Once your student scores 70% or better in the ACE-approved courses, you can have ACE transcript it. There are colleges that accept ACE credit. Some colleges state ACE acceptance on their websites. At others, you need to ask the registrar (admissions folks often don't know anything about ACE, so the registrar's office is the one to ask about it.) Check to see if the course you're taking is approved (http://www2.acenet.edu/nationalguide/) and if it is, get it transcripted by ACE at 70%+. Why not? You might be able to use those credits in the future. Here is an efficient way to build college credit while studying math in middle/high school: * Take ALEKS beginning algebra to get an idea how this program works. This class is often evaluated for remedial college credit, so it won't help toward your degree. * Take ALEKS intermediate algebra and score 70% or better...transcript with ACE before switching to another ALEKS course....3 credits. * Take College Mathematics CLEP after studying the REA prep book (algebra on the test is similar to ALEKS intermediate algebra) .... 6 credits. * Take ALEKS college algebra and score 70% or better...transcript with ACE before switching to another ALEKS course...3 credits. * Take CLEP college algebra (just in case you go to a school that accepts CLEP but not ACE) * Take ALEKS pre-calculus and score 70% or better...transcript with ACE before switching to another ALEKS course...3 credits * Take CLEP pre-calculus (just in case you go to a school that accepts CLEP but not ACE). * Take an ALEKs statistics course and add it to your ACE transcript for 3 more credits! You can start this plan at any age. It's important to earn credit for math classes in a logical pattern. Some schools won't give credit for lower-level math if you've already proved mastery at a higher level. For instance, students who have passed the AP Calculus test might not be able to earn college math and algebra credit with ALEKS/CLEP. Using the plan above, you can earn up to 18 college credits at schools that accept ACE and CLEP. A side benefit is that you be well prepared for the math portion of the SAT or ACT, and you will place into a higher section of math in college. Who knows, you might need Calculus for your major. (FYI, there is Calculus CLEP, too.) For more information see http://www.degreeplanners.com/?About_ACE%AE%2C_FEMA%2C_%26amp%3B_NFA. Here is a link to a 3-month free trial of ALEKS for homeschoolers: http://www.aleks.com/webform/hsm_203 . The link is valid until 1-27-11.
  5. From the "Homeschooling for College Credit" Facebook page: Homeschooling for College Credit VIRTUAL STUDY GROUP is ready to take on a new exam! If you've never participated, it's completely free and geared toward the parents (though teens can participate too). It is a 1 month accelerated study curriculum for YOU. Everything is in the curriculum via links, lectures, pdf, etc. It is NOT self-paced, and interaction with the class is expected, but you're under no obligation to actually take the CLEP (but I hope you do). The reason for this study group is to teach the parent how to fish (so to speak) so you can implement exam study in your homeschool. The exam material will be accessible February 1st. We will study to take US HISTORY II CLEP for 3 credits. To sign up, click here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/HS4CCstudy/
  6. Just curious about how others put a CLEP credit on a transcript if your student hasn't taken an offical class. DD is doing a self-study. Would you convert the score to a grade or just list it as and extra accomplishment? Thanks!
  7. I originally wrote a long post with a bunch of questions but I decided it would be better to break the questions up to make it easier for responses. We live in Canada. My son is in Grade 6 and I'm thinking ahead and starting to research this whole high school thing. Second question, I've been told that instead of him studying for a high school credit in Biology, I should let him CLEP Biology. So, that he would only have to study a bit longer and he'd end up with a college credit instead of just a high school credit. Have other parents here had their children CLEP through highschool? What did you think of that process of CLEPing through Highschool?
  8. We are new to the whole CLEP process. Please help us. :) Dd scored 63 on her Spanish CLEP this morning. According to the handy-dandy chart in the book, that's a respectable score but not a high score. Is it good enough to hang onto and proudly put on her student resume? Or should she study more and try again in a few months? If this were AP I would understand better. With the AP, a 4 or 5 are desirable and a 3 is not bad but not great. If that 3 is in a subject area that is immediately pertinent to the student's desired major, studying and trying for a better score is the best thing to do. How does the CLEP scoring compare? Thanks!
  9. OK, here is what I think I have gathered so far regarding CLEP... 1. A high school student can take CLEP exams. 2. Even freshman high schoolers can take CLEP exams. 3. You simply register at a university near you to take the CLEP exam. 4. CollegeBoard keeps a transcript of the CLEP exam that have been taken. 5. When you apply to a college you ask the College Board to send the CLEP scores you want considered. 6. The school the child attends may or may not accept CLEP, but all the ones I have looked at so far do accept them, at least they do today. 7. The limit of credit-by-exam credits is usually limited to 30. 8. I don't have to get a college to hold the scores, because CollegeBoard does that. Right? I know this is a repreat point, but I am trying to figure our the benefit of CollegePrep services, and this is where I am a bit confused. OK, what am I missing? Thanks, Josie
  10. I'm trying to decide on my son's history and have narrowed it down to Sonlight 100 or Notgrass American History. I wondered if one was better than the other for preparing him to pass the American History CLEP? Thanks!
  11. Has your student taken CLEP tests during high school to get some college credits out of the way? If so, did you use CLEP recommended textbooks or the typical homeschool textbooks? Both? Did your student find the practice tests helpful? All of our local college and university choices accept CLEP and have CLEP testing centers so we already have that covered.
  12. My daughter is studying biology from the Bob Jones Press high school text, 3rd edition. She would like to pass the CLEP biology next summer. In addition to the biology text do you recommend the REA for Biology as a helpful CLEP study guide? THANKS!
