- Jul 3, '11 by KassieLPN2RNI have Lisa's CDs and studygroup101 - SG101 is better by far! I'm not certain that Lisa's are updated, alot of the dates are 2005. Too many passwords, you can't print half the stuff and when you do it has that cartoon nurse picture on it all over! I've been using the SG101 material and so far doing excellent (keeping my fingers crossed!!) I've finished Transition-A, Health Safety-A, Repro-A, LS1-B & 3-B and used their general courses also. I was gonna take transition first so I bought the CD for that late last year and got an update from SG101 not long after. So they DO update their material as promised. I'm waiting on the updated Chronicity that is supposed to be out shortly then I will start working on that one!
- Jun 30, '12 by BarbaraNMLisa Arends' Lifespan Development was one of my resources for the HG&D CLEP. Fortunately, I used other resources, too. I have the REA book, Santrock text, the HG&D guide from College Board, and had used Instacert for a month (a while back). Of all of them, hers was the least useful. I found the errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation to be annoying... and made me wonder if there were also mistakes in the content. I found some of her quiz questions were taken directly from College Board CLEP notes... I agree with the other post that wondered how her material could be copyrighted, when it was clearly taken from other sources.
I do have 1 or 2 other study guides purchased from her, on other topics. I am not saying there is not some good material there, but would recommend using other resources also!
