My ACE transcript still shows “In the upper-division baccalaureate degree category, 2 semester hours in Ethics for Insurance Professionals or business ethics (9/15).” - not sure if this is because I’ve already completed it...

Yeah, its because you already completed it. ACE recommendations are based on the completion date.

How long does it take for the pending status to go to approve?  It's still pending, whereas my TEEX & Sophia courses were approved within a day.

Usually a few business days for things to be approved through ACE.

I just completed this course. I have no connection with the insurance industry at all, so it was definitely the most challenging of the free credit-sources so far (but I still haven't gotten too deep into TEEX). Doesn't seem as beginner-friendly as Sophia's shorter options.

I avoided the modules completely and prepped with the notes, passing with 92%. No idea what I got wrong since the review didn't seem to show incorrect responses when I glanced through, so either I missed the corrected responses or they don't provide them. Personally, I thought that most of the questions weren't too convoluted. That said, I took about three hours to prep and complete the exam due to my total lack of professional background in the topic.

Learned way more than I'd care to know about the ethics of putting the CPCU logo on buttons, stationery, and license plates. In the end though, maybe that's the true meaning of this whole journey all along.

Hey grats on passing!

I needed to take it myself and did so after reading your review. I must say it was pretty tricky, I went into it cold without looking at any of the modules or the provided docs. 

It was very challenging, I used the search feature on the provided docs to reason most of the test out, took me around 2 hours to complete the 50 questions. Just scraped by with a 78% on the final, but its still a pass so I was happy, definitely some luck was involved.
