TECEP Easiest to hardest rank
#11
Sales Management was the easiest one I took. I have a long history of working in sales though. I was so busy dealing with life and studying for another exam that I literally probably only studied for this exam for a day... and got nearly a perfect score. Normally I studied for exams a few months per exam, so I was pretty shocked that I scored so high on that one with such little study time.

I haven't found an easy TECEP yet. They definitely seem to be one of the most challenging types of alternative credit. I needed to study a lot for Medical Terminology but I did end up with a decent grade of 84%

I found the Env Ethics TECEP to be a challenge. It covers a lot of material, much of which is remembering which philosopher founded what school of thought, exactly what their arguments were, and how they apply to different environmental issues. Also, the way TECEPs (and TESU exams in general) handle essays make it extra challenging.

TESU exams are organized into sections. You can't look ahead at other sections and once you leave a section, you cannot return. Every TESU exam I've taken with essay questions have placed each essay in it's own section, meaning that you cannot manage your time effectively at all. If you have 4 essays and 40 minutes left, you had best plan finishing the first essay within 10 minutes, for example.

I remember one exam I took that had 5 essay questions, but I thought there were only 4. I took too long on the first essay, but I didn't really realize the depth of my mistake until I was in the 3rd essay and running out of time. I had to rush the last three essays, and bombed the exam pretty badly.

I also hate how TECEP's are organized - they're a hot mess in having to move on to a section, and not being able to go back to prior sections.  For instance, for English Comp II, the first step in a multi-step process was to write a thesis or something along those lines - then you left that section.  The next section was to expand on the thesis.  Wait, what?!?  And I can't go back and copy and paste it so I know what I wrote?  So basically, I had to rewrite a thesis I'd just written, hoping I got it right, and then write some more.  I was very annoyed with the whole thing.  Why you can't go back makes zero sense.  Not copying your thesis to the next section and then allowing you to edit it was seriously just wrong.  Kind of mean-spirited.

One thing I noticed with Applied Liberal Arts Math was that they allowed you ONE piece of scratch paper.  For a math exam where you were expected to figure out problems.  Seriously.  And then the proctorU guy told me I needed to stop looking down so much - I was so mad!  I was like, dude, it's a math test and I have to figure out answers to problems - how am I supposed to do that without looking down and writing on the ONE piece of paper you're allowing me?!?  Angry

The other thing with TECEP's in general, is that many rely on your ability to type - if you're not a proficient typist, you're in trouble.  So, for anyone that is not fairly fast, I'd say that you should stick to TECEP's that are entirely multiple choice.

I took Financial Institutions and Markets and it was pretty tough. Nit sure how I passed. It was pretty comparable to but harder than the DSST Money and Banking and you might as well take both IMHO.
