Best English I and English II courses for TESU?
#1
My friend has all of the RA credits he needs but doesn't have any English comp classes. I took them at CC so I'm not sure where to recommend my friend get them. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Thanks!

CLEP w/ essay. But only if you have a testing center nearby. This would be free through ModernStates.

He may not NEED more RA credits, but either the TECEP or through ONU would be my recommendation if CLEP is not possible. The TECEPs would be one quick exam each, $150. ONU would also be $150 each. They'd be more work, but they're also self-paced. If he's unsure of his ability to pass an English Comp exam (or two), ONU would probably be the best option.

I did English I in college, but English II is pretty easy on Study.com. There are only 51 lessons, many of which someone proficient in English can probably quiz out of without too much trouble, and it requires writing only two 1,500 word essays and an essay proposal of about 600 words. There is also a proctored exam, but it's not difficult. Someone watching or reading all the lessons could probably do it in less than a week. Just be certain your friend either has a second class he wants to take, as it costs $200 to sign up for a month and that price includes two proctored tests, i.e., two classes, or is willing to spend a decent chunk for three LL credits.

You can't take Study.com English 104/105 for TESU.  

It must be English 204/205 and those classes are literally like the Capstone course at TESU.

I was talking about 205. I found it to be a pretty easy, quick class.

English I - Where ever you feel comfortable.
English II - (if you hate writing) DSST Principles of Advanced English Composition (multiple guess test....NO WRITING)

https://tesu.smartcatalogiq.com/en/Curre...DSST-Exams

I haven't taken this DSST, but I did take Technical Writing....which counted for WGU and it was super easy (also no writing).

If you need RA credits, TECEPS, if you are just needing the credits, do the CLEP/MS option.

No idea where this is coming from. Those two courses are not anything like the Capstone imo.

Study.com is the quickest/easiest way to get the credits OP is asking about, unless you want to CLEP them
Study.com - 165 CR. TESU - 36 CR. Middle Georgia State University - 15 CR. Sonoran Desert Institute - 42 CR. COSC - 6 CR. Excelsior - 6 CR. CLEP - 6 CR. Sophia - 14 CR. TEEX - 2 CR. Shmoop - 18 CR. NFA - 4 CR. The Institutes - 2 CR. FEMA - 20ish


BA in History/English from TESU
 

AS in Firearms Technology from SDI
