Thanks for the feedback. Quick follow up question:  Is English Comp 1& 2 easier via CLEP versus on SDC? I know essay writing is involved in both, at first glance, it appears that SDC more writing.

You're comparing apples-to-oranges.  The CLEP is a test, so you're writing with a time limit.  I would say you should only try it if you're a pretty proficient typist.  SDC is a course, and there are multiple essays to do for each course.
Got it. I recognize that there is a time crunch with the CLEP route, but I also noted that there were 3 essays required for one of the SDC courses. I guess the positive thing with SDC is that although there is more writing involved, at least they give the topics upfront for you to complete essays.

Thanks for the point of view!

With SDC you can also re-submit papers until you get the grade you want. Each time they will be marked with what is wrong (based on the rubric) so you just need to make corrections and resubmit to improve your grade (if you want or need to). That and you have pretty much as much time as you need to complete the papers, so you won't be in a time crunch like with the CLEP exam.
Awesome! Thanks, Merlin.

There's no reason you can't try the CLEP for free via Modern States, and fall back on SDC if you don't pass. The study time won't be wasted, as it should speed you through the SDC course.

I started off with 20 classes that I need to take to finish my degree at SNHU. I planned on taking 10 classes through CLEP/DSST etc. So far I have completed 3 of them (marketing, info sys, and MIS), but I need some guidance on which of the remaining classes I should test out of since I have one more option than I need, or can take (I only get to transfer in 30 credits).

I'm confused by something- why do you only get to transfer in 30 credits? SNHU's policy allows transfer of 90.

Sorry for the confusion. I wasn’t clear in my original post. They did allow 60 credits to be transferred in, so that leaves me with 30 credits that I can test out of, and 30 credits that must be taken at the school.

Hope that clears it up. By the way, thank you for your guidance and tips when I first signed up on this board. You and others were instrumental in helping me come up with a plan!
