    No. They are not.
    CLEPS Passed: 10 DSST Passed: 11 TECEPS: 1

    Don't waste time by trying to save time. The only sure way to complete your degree is to knock out credits quickly and efficiently.

    Don't let easiness bite you in the rear. Know your endgame (where you want to be) and plan backward from there. Your education is a means to an end.

    Be honest professionally, socially and academically. There are people (especially little ones) who look up to you and they're going by your example.

    Be proud. Whether you're an Engineer or Fast Food worker, there is honor and dignity in hard work.

    Picking on people weaker than you only proves that you are a weak person.

      PF's usefulness here comes from their ACE reviewed courses. So while they only hold National accreditation, many of their courses can be transferred to one of the big 3 and used for credit....Some of these are even upper level.

      I'm always happy to complete the free application waiver for those applying to WGU (I get a free gift from WGU for this). Just PM me your first/last name and a valid email so I can complete their form.
