Post your Test Results!
Hello Everyone,
Today I took the Fundamentals of Counseling DSST and got a 371. I studied for this test with a condensed study guide book from Pass Your Class. The study material from that book was not enough to get me a pass. They included 231 practice questions at the back of their book, I took them in two parts. I took each section twice scoring 65% and then 90% on the first half and then 77% and 92% on the second half. Adding both scores together it would give me a 71% on my first time through and then a 91% on my second time through. There were quite the amount of topics mentioned on my actual test that I hadn’t seen before.
 
Topics or things to know on the test:
·        Id is present at birth
·        E. G. Williamson
·        Stanford-Binet test
·        Assessment and appraisal techniques
·        Family therapy
·        Frank Parsons
·        Kohlberg’s stages (preconventional, conventional, postconventional)
·        Transference and counter-transference
·        How many counselors are needed to be considered a group?
·        Freud’s psychosexual stages
·        Tarasoff
·        Stereotyping
·        Humanistic therapy
·        Existential therapy
·        Behavioral therapy
·        Projection
·        Cognitive-Behavioral therapy
·        Aaron T. Beck and Cognitive therapy
·        Systems therapy
·        Robert Kegan
·        Treatment of HIV/AIDS patients
·        Ann Roe
·        John Holland
·        Donald Super
·        Carol Gilligan
 
Absolutely nothing about these topics on the test:
·        Erik Erikson
·        Karen Horney
·        B. F. Skinner
·        Dorothea Dix
·        Wilhelm Wundt
·        AA (alcoholics anonymous)
·        NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors)
·        CACREP
·        Virginia Satir
·        REBT (rational emotive behavior therapy)
·        Classical conditioning
·        Logotherapy
·        Eclectic therapy
·        Feminist therapy
·        Substance abuse
·        Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
 
This is the second time I have failed a college exam, the first time I did not care to write about because I knew that I didn’t study well enough for that one. From this experience I have learned that you can’t trust one single study resource. If you have access to other study resources then I’d advise studying from as many different ones as you can. By covering different study materials hopefully you will have had the opportunity to come across all the different topics that will be covered on your test so that you’re not slammed with a completely new and unfamiliar term on testing day.

As to how it feels to have failed a test. Well anytime you fail in life it’s not going to be fun. You just have to pick yourself up and keep right on going. God is still in control of everything and He has a plan and  reason for everything. So just keep going and don’t let it ruin your life. No one can expect to go through life without any problems/setbacks. Failing sometimes happens, I’m not going to let this experience discourage me from pursuing my college degree.
I will be taking Foundations of Education CLEP next. When I started working on my college back in 2016 I was going for a Bachelor’s in Organizational Leadership. Since then I have switched to gettting a Bachelor’s in Child and Youth Development. I will be acquiring 87 credits from CLEP and DSST tests, then enroll in Charter Oak state college to complete my degree.

I have also taken:
Introduction to World Religions-DSST -479
Principles of Marketing-CLEP -63
Principles of Management-CLEP -56
Principles of Supervision-DSST -422
Introductory Psychology-CLEP -53
Introductory Sociology-CLEP -57
History of the United States 1 -57
Introduction to Business-DSST -435
Introduction to Educational Psychology –CLEP -57
Lifespan Developmental Psychology DSST -413

God bless and happy testing!

Hi Jortholmes,

That sucks that you failed, but thanks for much for the detailed post! It must've taken a long time to write this out so clearly. I'm glad you're handling the failure so well. When I failed my first exam (Corporate Finance) it sent me for a loop. But I finally passed it on the fourth attempt. Nothing beats that feeling of elation of finally getting past a hurdle. Smile

I did not pass my DSST test on Organizational Behavior - I needed. 400 and only got a 384. Thought I knew it well- very disappointed.

Uexcel Exam- Bioethics: Philosophical Issues = letter grade of B. I didn't study because I had the NWAE to study for and forgot I scheduled it. But i would say make sure to study up on the ppl who changed bioethics I had some familiarity with the subject. Use the study guide that was given after I took the test I looked through the guide and most of the answers I remembered were in the guide.
