I am excited because I passed CLEP Information Systems and Computer Applications with a score of 77! I am surprised at my score, because computers is not my area at all!
I studied one of the recommended textbooks for the DSST and used internet resources. I found free-clep-prep.com to be a very good study resource. I took a while to study for this exam. I do usually tend to overstudy and like to make certain that I will pass, but since I am not good at computers I took even longer.
I found the exam to be easier than I expected and thankfully there wasn't much programming code. It seemed to cover much the same areas and information as what I was studying for the DSST. So both exams seem to have a lot of overlap.
My brother says that with that score I should do the other two computer exams as well. The DSST Intro. to Computers duplicates the CLEP at TESC, so I am not planning to take that, and I don't have any place in my degree to put the MIS, so I am not sure if I should take that either. Does anyone have any advice? Would the DSST MIS be useful to have on my transcript even if it does not fit in my degree? And how much overlap does it have with the CLEP; would it require much additional study?
