Raise your hand if you have students in High School. Anyone? If your arm is in the air, there is a good chance that you are in the throes of college prep. These years before sending kids off to college can seem daunting at best, and downright scary at worst. Then again, maybe it isn’t your child going off to college. Perhaps you are the one making the decision to return to college. Whether you are in the former or latter category, help is readily available, and this time, it comes from Study.com . Some of our Homeschool Review Crew members have been working with their CLEP and DSST prep materials for the past couple of months.
CLEP stands for College Level Examination Program. This course offers over 30 exams that can help you or your student earn college credit in a shorter period of time than the typical college setting. Studies are completed at one’s own pace, allowing you to proceed as quickly or slowly as desired. Written by professionals, 3,000+ video lessons are short enough that they allow students to study when and where it is convenient for them. Short assessments follow each lesson to determine comprehension. Every course provides the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to adjust their studies.
Subjects covered are business, composition and literature, foreign language, history and social studies, science and math, etc.
DSST, or Dantes Subject Standardized Tests are available for over 30 exams, allowing students to earn college credit outside of the traditional university setting. Over 1,900 colleges accept DSST scores, making it an effective way to shorten the time it takes to earn your degree.
As with the CLEP prep materials, lessons are comprised of short video lessons (4,000+ lessons available), with self assessments at the end of instruction. Tips, 30+ study guides and information, and 24/7 support make these prep materials a perfect option for those seeking to earn a degree, but require flexibility and individualized study time. Subjects are divided into subject specific areas such as English, math, science, business, social studies, health and psychology, etc.)
