  Help thinking about changing degree
Posted by: geissingert - 04-19-2019, 04:39 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (2)

my son was going for computer science degree at TESU. He’s thinking about changing it to electronics engineering which one would be least expensive? He has all his general classes. He will have to do physics and chem on electronics. Would like to know where he can take lower budget classes on the electronics? https://www.tesu.edu/ast/programs/bs/ele...technology

  Do-over - what career would you pick?
Posted by: bethanyneedsajob - 04-19-2019, 12:54 AM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (7)

Okay wise ones. I know some of you are pretty well aware of who is getting good jobs and what field. Let’s pretend you get a free career choice do-over and funding isn’t a problem. Say you have up to 10+ years to leisurely get a degree in anything, what would you do? 

Also, any ideas on niche jobs that are cool sounding, that maybe you would encourage someone else to do? Like, “hey that sounds like an awesome job for someone, just not me”. 

Okay Go! Name your dream job. 

I’ve read a good share of magazine, BLS and O’net studies, let’s hear it from real people. Smile

  Textbooks—Huge, Expensive, and Out of Print
Posted by: pws - 04-18-2019, 09:24 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

I'm looking into buying the textbooks I need for the TESU Non-Western Lit. course, and two BYU-IS courses.

First, for the TESU Non-Western Lit. course, we are expected to buy The Norton Anthology of World Literature, volumes A, B, C, D, E and F (two box sets). Each volume is around 1000-1500 pages—making this approximately 7500 pages of text. What the heck?

For the two BYU-IS courses, most of the books are fine. There's just one book though, that's out of print. I found a few used copies in only two places online, however, it makes you wonder, why do they expect you to buy a book if it's out of print?

On a more serious note:

  • For most course books, are they completely required, or some are more-or-so optional?
  • Are there workarounds? Any suggestions?

  Competency-based BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology?
Posted by: sanantone - 04-18-2019, 06:39 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

On the page for Texas A&M - Corpus Christi's online programs, they list a competency-based degree in mechanical engineering technology. When I click on the link, I don't see any mention of the program being competency-based, but it does say that the program is ABET-accredited. After doing some digging, I only found some articles from a couple of years ago that announced the funding of the program and an archived catalog page. 

Maybe one of you will be interested enough to do some more research.

  What do you think is the worst profession?
Posted by: sanantone - 04-18-2019, 05:55 PM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (10)

I'm on a staycation while preparing for my move, and I started watching podiatry videos on YouTube. I thought being a dentist or dental hygienist would be bad because of people's bad breath and gross mouths, but being a podiatrist is 10X worse. It seems like most of their work involves clipping toenails with fungal infections; removing warts, calluses, and abscesses; and removing ingrown toenails. Sadly, they seem to get a lot of elderly patients who suffer from self-neglect. A lot of them had feet that were covered in dead skin.

  Sophia, Ethics and COM-299/SOS-240
Posted by: pws - 04-18-2019, 10:53 AM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (1)

About to use the 3 courses for $297 offer at Sophia (lasts until today). Just need to confirm a few things before choosing/buying the courses:

1. Introduction to Ethics at Sophia transfers in as PHI-180 (current ACE subscription ends 9/30/2019 by the way). This would work fine for the ETHICS requirement, even if it is a PHI-1XX course (rather than PHI-2XX)?

2. The Conflict Resolution course comes in as COM-299, and the Essentials of Managing Conflict comes in as SOS-240.
- Is Essentials of Managing Conflict (SOS-240) just a basic version of Conflict Resolution (COM-299), of which the material directly comes from Conflict Resolution (COM-299)?
- If both were taken, would there be a course conflict, or it would be fine since they come in as SOS-240 and COM-299?

Hi everybody, I would like a recommendation on a website or two where I can sign up free and learn to type faster, especially the numbers on the keyboard. How many minutes a day should I practice to get better? Thanks

  Can someone please dumb this down for me in layman terms
Posted by: connieblue - 04-17-2019, 04:44 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (2)

I'm taking the intro psychology clep and want to make sure i have the biological questions grasped before I take it.

I provided a link and even though the link is made specifically for dummies on the subject, I'm still having a hard time understanding it.

LINK -https://www.dummies.com/education/scienc...-impulses/

If anyone could explain the link in simpler terms in the response to this thread, I would be extremely grateful.

Thanks Connie.

  Do CLEP scores have to be sent to a college in order to be seen?
Posted by: Mom23boys - 04-17-2019, 02:16 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (5)

My DS will likely take the Biology CLEP in June once he has completed his Honors Biology High School class. He is only in 9th grade so right now we have absolutely no idea where he will even apply to college when the time comes. I read something on another site that lead me to believe the once you complete a CLEP exam, you are asked where the result should be sent. If you don't choose a college, then you won't see your score. Is that correct?  I thought he would see his score as soon as he was done taking the exam. 

Any clarification on this process would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!
