    Is that chart accurate or just a guess? Anyway it is an eye opener for sure! I've been homeschooled since kindergarten, so I don't know much about the public school system's doings. This just reinforces my desire to learn at home.

    I'm pretty sure it was meant to be wry humor. I doubt it's based on any real statistic.

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

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


    I think its untrue. There is a trick to scholarly research and paper writing at the graduate level. It gets even tricker at the doctorate level, so I hear. But page margins are not the biggest problem you will face.
    I have 2 margins that I work with. Block quotes are uniformly indented .5" in APA format and references in the references section have a .5" hanging indent.
    Just write 5-10 papers in APA format and you will get the hang of it.
