    Feb 12, 2009, 7:44 AM - 3 more college credits for me! #1

    Hi everyone!
    I posted a while back that I passed a college algebra class (with an A ) as I progress toward my B.S. degree.
    I just passed a CLEP test for Microeconomics, so that gives me 3 more credits toward my degree. I'm pretty happy.
    I don't have a lot of time while I'm here in Korea to take online classes, so I picked up a CLEP study guide at the base library about a month ago, and have been reviewing and taking practice tests in my off-duty time. I took the test, and wound up getting enough points to have credit awarded to my degree program. Hooray!
    I'm gonna head back to the library this weekend to see what other study guides are available for classes I still need to take.
    Just wanted to share some good news!

    I got my first BS degree by completing about 30 credit hours from clep tests. I took them all from the Navy Campus office on base. It made it much easier to get into a great Engineering college because I already had an accredited degree and was able to enroll under a second bachelor's program. Keep charging!

    Congrats on the credits man. I wish I could take a test like that for the classes I am taking, just so I would be over with them.

    Hey, thanks, guys! It's another small step toward my goal. Just another boring class I don't have to sit through now.

    My school awards credit based on work/military experience. Not sure what "SWEEP" is, but I've been awarded several credits based on my Air Force formal training and Professional Military Education.
