*Ding ding* Woo hoo! And if you take that course, that is what you will get!
It comes in and will work for Oral Communications requirement. Go get it!

I ended up taking Interpersonal Communications instead because WGU will only accept this or Public Speaking. I took the placement test for Presentation Skills afterwards out of curiosity and was pleasantly shocked to see that I was 60% through the course already!! Needless to say, I finished it in a jiffy for a quick 3 more credits!! Had no idea how much overlap there is between some SDC courses. This is amazing!!!

Is there a list or is it kind of try out courses in the same category and see?

Sent from my iPhone using
SDC - Interpersonal Communications, Presentation Skills in the Workplace, Intro to Operating Systems, Intro to Programming (in progress) NEXT Systems Analysis & Design, Database Management, MIS?, Python? C++?
ICC - American Government
SL - Personal Finance
TECEP - Medical Terminology
The Institutes - Ethics and the CPCU Code of Professional Conduct 
TEEX Cyber Ethics - 2cr, Cyber Law/White Collar Crime 2cr

CSM Learn- The CSM Course
DSST - Drugs and Society 436, Here's To Your Health 450, Computing and Information Technology 461
AAS Nursing - Helene Fuld College of Nursing 
Course: Business 308: Globalization & International Management
Course content: Standard quizzes and lectures. 2 papers required
Final exam format: 70 multiple choice questions & the 2 papers
Final exam content vs course content/practice exams: it's the same
Time taken on course: a couple of weeks
Familiarity with subject before course: I have operated an international business for the last 20+ years
Pitfalls, high points, things others should know: This is pretty simple if you know anything about international business. Thanks to Trump, words like "tariff" and "quotas" and "free trade agreement" are in the news again and that will probably help alot to increase your background knowledge of the concepts of trade barriers. For some reason the final placed a huge emphasis on the difference between domestic trade and international trade, ie "If you live in London and sell something to Paris, is that domestic or international trade?" which I found bizarre but apparently they really wanted to hammer that home. There's a decent chunk on currency exchange rates as well.
1-10 Difficulty level: 3ish for me. If you don't know anything about international trade this could be kind of tough. - 147 CR. TESU - 27 CR. Middle Georgia State University - 15 CR. COSC - 6 CR. Excelsior - 6 CR. CLEP - 6 CR. Sophia - 2 CR. TEEX - 2 CR. Shmoop - 18 CR. NFA - 4 CR. The Institutes - 2 CR. FEMA - 20ish

BA in History/English from TESU
