How is Study.com?

You can choose your own speed.
It's mostly quizzes (a lot) and a final proctored exam for LL and assignments also for UL. Check the syllabus of each course. Yes, it is recommended mostly to use for the UL courses.

What do you mean by two exams are included, but they are lost if not used in that month? Do you mean progress is lost, or just that the monthly membership will have to be paid again?

All the information you’re asking for is on their website & a membership isn’t required to view it...

Study.com just got bumped into my #1 spot for alternative credit. StraighterLine held that spot for me the last 3 years... the rest of the providers remained the same on my list. Sophia being #3 for their course presentation/structure/style, then Coopersmith/Davar/Ed4credit all three tied at #4 for the easy test out credits (brain dumping the knowledge you learn). To round out the top 5, OD.com/Saylor.org for the price...

Anyways, Study.com pricing is similar to StraighterLine, you pay monthly. The only difference is, you get two exams included in that month membership - StraighterLine makes you pay for each course. For Study.com, if you want to do more exams, it's $70/exam after the two included in the membership. For some courses, it will take a while to complete, so if you can't finish the course within that month, you'll be missing out on that exam. In order to circumvent that, I make sure I do at least two courses/month, and more if possible.

Example, my current month, I did 5 exams way before my month was over. I could do two more as I hit the overlapping dates for the month (I did two exams 6/28/2019, my membership renews at 6/29/2019), 3 exams last week, I am still within the 5 exams per month for July).

Study.com is now my go to for UL credit and also for learning/retaining info, especially when you want to understand a concept, you research and complete the assignments accordingly. Essentially, I use StraighterLine for the Business/Gen Ed and other required Lower Level courses that I really don't need to learn much about and want to blast through to get the credits.
