    That's good. Mine was how I did it with the mix of credits from various sources, which might be useful to someone else in the same position as I was. I only wish I had known of this forum and TESC a few years ago. I had practically given up finishing a degree because all I knew of prior to discovering this site was the traditional route through B&M schools. This has been a godsend, if not really a benefit for my career so far then at least in fulfilling a personal goal.

    Not to make more work for anyone, but I think it would be nice to have any degree plan that someone uses added to the wiki. Even if someone would rather take macroecon instead of microecon, it gives them a place to start.

    Can someone check this over for me? I adjusted my TESC BA in History degree plan, replacing my B&M college classes with CLEP and DSST where applicable. Before I post it as a degree plan I want to make sure I didn't mess anything up, because even though I have been here since May 2010, I still feel very much like a newbie regarding degree plans. And obviously getting a numbers file to show us as text. @@

    I like the idea of showing multiple different ways to complete the same degree. Shows people that they aren't locked into only one route. Not everyone has the same background and some will have credits others won't.

    Agreed. And I'm getting faster at putting them up, because I'm getting lazy. So now you see them pretty much the way I get them, in different layouts. Some I clean up, others work as-is.

    Ninja edit:

    PS when I first put it up two weeks ago it had 24 pages. It just hit 62!

    Question Summarized course/test list?

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

    Study for your exam using the same CLEP Study Guides used by thousands of members of this discussion forum!


    Is there a summarized list of Course / Test Method? I've been looking through many templates and degree plans and hope that there is a compiled list of what test can be taken instead of each course. Is it something that could be compiled on the wiki?

    eg:
    ARTS and SCIENCES

    Written English Requirement:
    English Comp 1 CLEP used by Mary, Joe, John, Jack, etc
    English Comp 2 "

    Humanities:
    Ethics in America DSST
    Intro to World Religion "
    Principles of Public Speaking "
    Technical Writing "
    Foreign Language CLEP
