Sociology: CLEP vs. SL

  1. 0
    Anyone want to convince me to do one over the other? (read: easier LOL)

    I'll have about 10 days left in my Straighterline "month", so I could just do sociology through them.. Is it the type of course you can do in a week? Or I could just leave it for now and CLEP it later on. Thoughts?

    I hope you get some answers from anyone who has done the Straighterline Sociology! If you could do it in 10 days, that would be awesome! I completed their Medical Terminology course in 4-6 hours. The English 101, on the other hand, took about 7 weeks... lots of papers!

    For Human Growth and Development, I used CLEP... it was about 2 solid weeks of studying, then the test.

    Straighterline would be cheaper, though.... $39. CLEP will be about $99.. GOOD LUCK!!

    p.s. Be sure to check your exact renewal date through Straighterline.. they use a 28 day 'month'!

    I recently completed Straighterline's Sociology class. Took me about nine days from start to finish to complete the course. I thoroughly enjoyed the class; the content was very interesting. The course has no papers for you to write--just quizzes and two major exams. I didn't even read the textbook recommended for the class; I just took notes from the lesson presentation at the beginning of each chapter. Hope this helps make up your mind!

    Thank you both for your advice! Maybe I'll try and squeeze it in through SL.
