    Default Art of the Western World DSST

    I have been checking the Feedback Section and no one has added anything in over 6 months Just wondering if anyone has taken this recently and had some insights or tips. I downloaded the Exam Fact Sheet from the Dsst website but it is not that helpful-- just a bare bones outline. This test seems very broad-- almost 3,000 years of art and artists-yikes. There is no practice test for this one either which makes me nervous. So any help would be appreciated

    Here is a link to Anneberg Media

    Resource: Art of the Western World

    These videos pretty much go right along with the test. This is what I used.

    Thanks Alleycat! I have been watching these videos so that is good to know that you found them helpful. I am curious how picky the questions are... like do they ask really obscure things or is it enough to know the main artists, where they lived, influences, types of media, etc. I am not good at memorizing every little detail and so I am a little nervous about that.

    Creative, it has been sometime now since I took the exam. I think it was more broad range vs small detailed. Its really not a popular exam.

    Thanks Alleycat! i agree, this test is hugely unpopular. I can barely find any info on it. I have spent quite a bit of time studying for it so I hate to back out and start a different test. I really love art so I was looking forward to studying something I actually enjoy. I just wasn't really prepared for how broad this test seems to be. Thanks for you help!
