My sons took a few CS courses from Saylor. It seems like that is one of the courses my two sons took because it was a network course. They were all quite bad in the sense that they took way longer than you would imagine. Then, when they transferred into TESU, they only counted for lower level courses. My first suggestion is to speak to an advisor to make sure things transfer in like you hope. Several of the Saylor courses keep losing/gaining accreditation, and even then TESU does not have to accept them at the same level as Saylor has them listed. Cost wise it was a great deal. The info was OK, but a ton of reading.

If you do decide to take it, my suggestion is to first sign up for the course more than once just to be able to take multiple practice final exams. Of course only use your account with your real information when you take the "real" exam. My sons were able to share practice exams. However, they were only allowed one practice final exam a week. Then study all the practice exams and keep practicing the different ones. I think there were a total of 6 when they took them. I know some on here that had problems with the online proctors and connections. We never had any problems with that though. I suppose it could be possible to take the final exams and pass the course from practicing those, but not sure you would really get much out of the course that way. My sons ended up reading all of the material. Sometimes the exams had weird answers still, and one on two questions per exam never had a real answer, but all in all it was only a pass/fail course anyway.

I just checked and according to Saylor's own site, this course will not transfer in to TESU at all. Not sure what college you are attending, but I would check this first by clicking on the college, and then check with my college also to make sure this information about the college transfer is accurate. https://www.saylor.org/partners/credit/

Saylor's site is way, WAY out of date in regards to what will transfer to TESU and what won't. I've started adding reported equivalencies to the wiki so that everyone can see what's what. We don't have a lot filled in just yet, but it's better than Saylor's site. https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Saylor_Academy

More than half of the courses from Saylor are going to expire in March. 
and they took almost 2 years to renew that CS402 course since it expired in 2019.

The current ACE recommendation for Computer Communications and Networks doesn't expire until December 2023.

17 course recommendations will expire at the end of March 2022, 7 recommendations will expire at the end of May 2022, and 10 recommendations will expire at the end of December 2023.

Of the 17 that will expire in March, most were immediately renewed from a previous recommendation (e.g., Introduction to Financial Accounting) or newly recommended for credit in 2018 (e.g., Principles of Finance).

The reason CS402: Computer Communications and Networks transferred in as LL is because that's what the ACE guide says.  The only one that MAY transfer in as UL (because ACE says it's UL) is CS302: Software Engineering.  I'm not sure we've heard recently that TESU brought it in as UL or not.

Some people have said that they're going to take Software Engineering to transfer to TESU, but I don't think any have reported back yet.

Did you take it? How did it go? How would you recommend someone to best prepare for the final exam?
