Quick Study.com Questions
#1
Can I sign up for the Study Plus ($59) plan, take the courses I need and then upgrade to the College Accelerator ($199) and take the final exams? 

I want to take all of the courses I need back to back with the Study Plus plan. I know you can take unlimited courses that way. But then, to get college credit, I'd like to take the necessary tests by upgrading to the College Accelerator plan. Will that work? 

Here's what I'm pondering:

-Is the material the same for Study Plus and College Accelerator (minus the final exam)?
-Will my progress be saved when I upgrade?

Yes. With my two: they use the Premium Plan for a month, switch to the College Accelerator Plan and take the first exam. Then study for and take the second exam before the 30 days is up. Then switch back to the Premium Plan.
This works out great if you want/need the extra time to study.

There is a limit to 5 exams in a month - so you could upgrade to the $199 plan and 2 do exams, and then any extras are $70 each; then you'd have to wait until the next month to do any additional exams.

In one month + 1 day, you can take 10 exams, that's quite a lot.
