How hard are Study.com Finals?
#11
The lower level course exams are definitely easier and more straight forward than the upper level.

I found the exam questions for the UL courses to be a little more tricky in the way they worded the questions.

This is a late response. I took the final exam on Principles of Finance and got 41 out of 100 correct. I studied using the final practice quizzes 3xs and passed, but when I got to the final exam, I loss focus. I hope I don’t need to retake, since I only needed a 56% passing which average to about 10 questions right. I say this because it’s important to get a good nights ? , good breakfast ?, stay focus on the exam and if you have time check your response if might in the end.

You need 210 points to pass @ 70%. Assuming you got 100% on the quizzes, that's 100 points, which means you only need 55% (or 55/100) on the final exam to pass. If you received 41/100 on the final exam, unfortunately, that's only a 41%, which gets you to 182 of the 210 points you need to pass.

So you'd need to retake and get at least 55-56 questions correct on the final exam.

Yes, Merlin explained this to you perfectly. You will need to do a retake of that course unless you want to take a similar course. Ask Excelsior if they would take the other Study.com Finance 104 - Finance Management course instead of this course, as other schools such as TESU accept that as equivalent to Principles of Finance. Are you having trouble with the course? Sometimes a break from it would do wonders, work on it after you've done your other remaining courses...

I elected to take some of DAVAR's business course for the upper level - the pre quizzes is what helped me pass the exam.  Did not care for the essay explanations, but getting those extra points made up the difference in my score.  I used Study.com only to pass the UExcel Human Resources Management exam.  Big Grin  Utilizing these routes to was successfully transfer the credits below to Excelsior - 

SL          102 credits
DAVAR     12 credit
UExcel       1 credit
DSST        9  credits

Now all I need to take the Excelsior Capstone get a bachelors degree in Business Administration in Professional Studies.

Hmm, I have slightly more SL credits than you... that was my fave provider too! What course is missing from your Excelsior degree? Is it just this Finance course and the Business Capstone? If this is the final course that's stopping you from graduating, take more time learning and creating your own notes from each lesson. Re-read, re-type those notes manually so you recall the information better.

EEEK, I had no idea i could take Study.com Finance 104 instead of the extremely long Principles of Finance! I emailed TESU asking them to confirm. I really hope this is the case, I already have so many other loooooong and boooooring classes to wade through. I was dreading that one.

Already replied to you on your other post, but for anyone else who comes along: yes, these courses will both come in as FIN-200 and can be used to fulfill the Finance requirement in the core.  But there are 2 problems:
1) Financial Mgmt is only 2 credits
2) Prin of Finance has a pretest, meaning if you take it multliple times before starting the course, you can possibly "test out" of much of the course.  I was able to do this for a course and got 40% of the way through in about 30 minutes of testing.

Also, Financial Mgmt is only 18 lessons shorter, so not quite as much as you might think.  I would stick with Prin of Finance if it were me.

I see from your signature that you took Discrete Math. How was the final exam?

I was a little worried about it because it was the only Study.com class I've taken where I had some difficulty with the content, but the final wasn't a problem. There were very few questions from the more dense sections of the material (aka the ones without videos), and when there were I pretty much just went with random guesses. Still got 87 out of 100 if I'm not mistaken.
