How long for UExcel?
#1
How long would it take for one UExcel class? I am planning my next semester and have a UExcel class on "world conflicts since 1990" coming up.  Thank you!

UExcel's aren't classes, they're exams. Courses at Excelsior are $1530 and take 8 weeks. UExcel exams can be taken any time within the term you signed up for, and take 2-3 hours.

Thank you!.  What I really need to know is how long it takes an experienced CLEPer and DSSTer to study for a Uexcel test.  How do they compare on difficulty and study intensity?

UExcel exams are more difficult than CLEP and DSST's.  However, they do grade on a curve.

Yes they are more difficult than DSST and CLEP. I got my lowest grade on an UEXCEL exam. Some exams don't have much feedback on them.

The World conflicts uexcel has a lot of theory questions. I got an A on it. My prep was reading 2 of the books on the content guide in full, the chapter summaries in the 3rd book, and all of the essays in the Excelsior provided readings. And the 2 practice exams and the extra questions in the content guide. The books were all pretty cheap buying used on Amazon. I think I spent about $25 for all 3.
I’d estimate that about 1/3 of the questions on my exam were exactly the same as ones from the practice exams. And 1/2 were very similar.

I got a B on this one, but I didn't buy the practice exams or the third book. I do think that someone in the Word Conflicts thread has/had some good notes that I used.  One thing I didn't like about one of the books is that it was like the 7th edition and ended around 1999/2000.  So some of their theories, facts quoted aren't correct anymore.  

Most UExcel exams have 120 questions that you have 2 hours to answer.  Some aren't graded so they tell you to try and answer all the questions correctly. 

Best of luck on your exams!!!
