Hello everyone I'm new here. I have a question about CLEP. Have anyone taken any tests yet and if so can you use your notes to test?

No, you cannot bring any notes with you to use on CLEP tests.  The testing center should provide you with a piece of scratch paper if you desire and you can use that to write down any notes once the test has started.

Hi, I'm brand new to the forum.  I'm trying to find out what my quickest/easiest was to earn my BSBA degree from one of the big 3.  I have 21 years in retail management experience plus I have my real estate license in the state of Texas.  I also have a handful of credits from over 20 years ago.  For arguments sake, let's just assume I'm starting from ground zero.  Is it worth it to try and and get some credit for my prior knowledge or, would it be easier to just take clep exams?  I have a good job in retail right now but, who knows what the future.  Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome, but this is a sticky overview thread (not a general Q&A).  You should start a new thread - this way you will get a proper response. You're in the right place for guidance, just have not posted in the right area. - other than that start on the forum's wiki site: https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Degree_Forum_Wiki
