    Default Finally back to testing!

    The biggest project of my career will finally be done on Tuesday! Watch them give the next biggest project on Wednesday

    Plus having been in Aleks hell already, there has been almost no progress in the last 2 months.
    So now its time to knock this stuff out, I am only 51 credits from a BS EET!!

    I gotta make this happen now while the holidays are a slow time for me.

    How is everyone staying motivated and nose to the grindstone?

    Motivated? Nose to grindstone? My new goal is to hit 300 postings. If I keep providing inane postings, I'll get there soon. I'm really in trouble if I don't get a higher degreeforum title at 300. I might keep posting until the darn thing rolls over.

    That is a great question: How do people stay motivated? It depends on the person, their lifestyle and drive to succeed. You have to be able to adapt to new situations, embrace your challenges, and be willing to struggle. Finals and major projects take a lot of time and patience to master, so practice makes perfect! Keep working hard, get enough sleep, eat right and you should be fine.

    Today is my first day in a couple weeks of absence from the forum.. December is crazy for me at work and school is really tough. I have no idea how I'm staying motivated right now, probably through sheer stress. Ha ha the holidays are the toughest time of the year. This time last year almost derailed me in my progress towards my undergrad.

    Maybe that is helpful motivation for those still on their way to the BS - exactly one year ago, I was scrambling to get everything done so I could graduate in May. I never thought it would actually happen and now here I am talking about my masters progress! It feels slow when you're going through it, but if you consistently set testing dates, it will happen!!

    Setting dates is a great idea! It really works well for me. I hate having things overdue. I am currently taking a break from CLEPing so I can finish high school, but as soon as I graduate I plan on hitting the CLEP books asap! Right now I think it's my stressing over graduating that is keeping me on track.

    Good for you testing while in HS. I wish I had known about all of this back then. They actually did have CLEP tests even in the 90s and REA books too!

    Thank my mom! She got me into testing. I did my first two tests while enrolled in CollegePlus Prep. Then I did the math CLEPs afterwards. It really gave me a jump start into college.
