Study.com Principles of Finance question
#21
I finally took the test tonight and passed with a 68%. That is by far my lowest grade on any of the Study.com exams I have taken. I felt like a ton of the questions were not even close to questions asked during the chapter tests and practice exam. I honestly thought I was going to fail the exam. I was surprised I even scored that high. I did the same study prep as I have done for all 20 courses I have completed through them. I was not happy at all with the wording of a lot of the questions on the final and I felt like some were intentionally confusing, which is the first time I have felt that way about any of their exams. But oh well...moving on.

Congrats, and a Pass is a pass I think the lowest I have gotten on one of there finals was a 69% and I felt like I actually did way better then that but only got a 69%. Other times I felt like I did terrible and got high 80s so there tests seem to be very random but very doable.

When you guys use the chapter exams to study, do you just speed through them picking anything, and then study the correct answers? I ask because there are 20 chapter exams in this course each with 25-30 questions. If I went through all of them and took my time, it would literally take me all day. I would like to take the final later today or first thing in the morning.

I take each chapter test after finishing the quizzes for that chapter, when the content is fresh in my head. Then after all the quizzes are completed, I open all the chap tests and copy all the incorrect answers to a word doc and study/highlight sections for better retention. There's an option to only see incorrect answers when reviewing the chapter test.

As with most ACE credit you get a Pass/Fail no grade when transferring it. Make an account here - https://www2.acenet.edu/credit/?fuseacti...ripts.main then once you complete the final go to your account and request it be added. Study.com takes usually under a week to approve.

I just took the final and got a 96. I've found that the best way for me to study for study.com finals is to focus on the flashcards and go over them all a few times until I have a good handle on them. Then take the practice final and study the answers that I got wrong. I used this method for my last 3 exams and its really worked for me.

I completely agree. Studying the practice final is golden advice as they usually have 10-15 questions on the exam that are almost identical to the practice final questions. I usually take the practice final and then take detailed notes on every single question.

Congrats! How long did you study? I am stressing, because I need to rush. I have too many life obligations, but need to take it before my study.com month is over.
