DSST Personal Finance
Hey test takers,

I'm cramming for DSST Personal Finance.  What study methods did you guys use and how many hours did you study for?

Also, passing is a 400 out of a 200-500 scale.  What % is that?

Any help would be awesome!

I used InstantCert. The scoring is very opaque and there isn't a set percentage. The questions have different weights so it depends on which ones you miss what score you end up with.
NanoDegree: Intro to Self-Driving Cars (in prog)

PLA Tips Thread - TESU: What is in a Portfolio?
I took this and passed without studying, but I have some knowledge of the info that's already on there. Have you bought a house? That is helpful. Do you have a 401(k) or 403(b) plan? Also helpful.

For people who are in their 30's and up, this might be easier than someone in their 20's for instance.
