Best Options at TESU? Residency vs Waiver for Military Dependent.

Prin of Marketing is new, and has short answer and essays as well as MC questions. So won't be as easy as other options.

Computer Concepts, Tech Writing & English Comp II - definitely recommended as TECEP's, I've taken them all w/o studying and passed.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll look into switching out the PR Relations now lol.

The Principles of Marketing TECEP isn't bad at all though, I've already taken it. You only need 65% to pass and the test has 74 multiple choice questions- so you have a good shot at passing without the essay section. Essay portion wasnt difficult either. Just have to know the definitions well enough to write a few sentences. I had already studied to take the exam at Saylor and used a rented textbook from Amazon to prepare. I don't even think the textbook was necessary, but having all definitions in one place was nice. I think it's a good option for those just needing easy TECEP's even though it is available elsewhere for cheaper.

I personally chose it because I had already taken English Comp I, so I didn't need that course. I think that's the case for a lot of people who went to school and ended up not finishing. It's one of those courses many take early on in their college careers.

Also, if you need both and want to test out, there's always the CLEP which is worth 6 credits and covers both.

That's true... But, I'm really looking to take as many (easy-ish) TECEPs as possible so I don't have to pay that residency waiver. Smile

Well then, I would add English Comp I to your list.

Have you taken a look at the TECEPS list? Go through these - Thomas Edison State University | All TECEPÂ Tests
I would find the ones you need, not because they are easy, but because it applies to the degree and residency.

Business & IT Certs: Cisco, CompTIA, 6Sigma/Lean/Scrum, ITIL, MTA, etc

These are the ones I've put on my "to do" list -

English Comp I
English Comp II
Tech Writing
Applied Liberal Arts Math
College Algebra


I plan to take two upper level biology courses (the only two they offer at TESU), and my 3-credit capstone. Assuming I pass all the TECEPs, I should be good for my residency waiver! Smile
