    Talking New To InstaCERT - Intro to Computing (DANTES) - HELP!

    Hi all!

    I am new to the forum and very excited that I have joined.
    I plan on taking, Into to Computing (Dantes), Intro to Sociology (CLEP) and Natural Sciences (CLEP) ---- followed by the Astronomy (CLEP) if I don't pass Natural Sciences.

    First up is the Intro to Computing (DSST) -- I have taken 2 of the 6 Peterson's exams and scored a 63 on the first and a 72 on the second. I then took the Information Systems (CLEP) Peterson's exam and scored a 77!

    I know the majority of members will say the Intro to Computing is the easier of the two tests, I wonder why I scored higher on the Peterson for the CLEP though? Also, with my scores, does it seem like I will pass the test? I am not sure how to translate the Peterson's results into the results that would be if it were actually the "REAL" test.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Go and take them the first available days you have. Peterson's are 'usually' harder. Let us know how you get on
    Set yourself goals, not limitations

    Hi and welcome! I agree that you should go take the test! With scores like that, I bet you'll do really well.

    Default Passed!!

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

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

    Thanks so much guys! I took this today and passed! 445. Not as good as I thought but the test wasn't as easy as I thought either! LOL.

    Needed a 400 ---- passed with 445. All good in my opinion!!! :-)
