need suggestions for something easy
#1
I need recommendations for a TESU student who needs to take one TESU course to increase GPA to be allowed to take LIB-495. Student meets all other graduation requirements. Needs to enroll in a 3 hour course and make a B or better. What are the easiest courses and instructors? Learning is irrelevant, this is all about the grade.
63 CLEP Sociology
75 CLEP U.S. History II

70 CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature

470 DSST Statistics

Well.. that's honest if not very compelling. Acceleration advice is one thing, helping devalue the degree many are seeking another.

What's easy for you and what's easy for me are very different things. We would need a great deal more info. Major? What courses does the student need to graduate? Typically, 100 level courses are the easiest. However, I would extremely struggle with physics, but I would find environmental science to be a piece of cake.

The student is good in psychology, biology, and graphic arts. Not good in math, physics, or chemistry. Good writing skills, does fine on research papers. BALS lacking only LIB-495.

Then you have your answer. Take a class in one of those subjects.

OP - You may want to indicate in a reply post what their evaluation entails, they may be getting a BALS with no concentration but may be closer to one that has a concentration they're interested in... Let's see, TESU doesn't have a graphic arts class and all their arts related courses are Art History I & II which can be taken elsewhere for cheap. I would suggest taking a Psychology class that isn't offered anywhere for cheap by alternative credit, especially if they are close to a BALS Social Science concentration or take a Biology course to get the BALS NSM concentration (they need just 3 UL credits in the concentration and 2 UL in some other Liberal Arts subjects).

It's a BALS. I don't think there is a concentration, if there is, it is in psychology. The only course left is LIB-495. The GPA has to be pulled up by taking any course and making a B or better. It's important to minimize risk of a bad grade.

Sounds like it's just a BALS with no concentration, it won't really matter anyway as the course I suggest is a very easy Upper Level Biology 310 course.  The course syllabus: https://www2.tesu.edu/course.php?CourseC...de=BIO-310 plus, here's a recent review: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...#pid286873 and finally, if they're really close to a Social Science or Psychology concentration and if it is something they're interested in, here are the Psychology options offered at TESU: https://www2.tesu.edu/listall.php otherwise, just take the Bio 310 course.

I would take whichever lower level course you're most interested in. The more you like something the easier it is to succeed. It's easy for me to get an A in something like Geology, Astronomy, or Environmental Science since I like it and actually want to learn it. Give me a philosophy based class and a B is a questionable with constant frustration and aggravation.

Like a particular ethics course? LOL I could sit and do environmental science all day long. Give me physics and I will just leave the room. I couldn't get a B if you gave me all of the answers.
