    All of my credits from a local college transferred. Hard back pretty quick. I would take the 2 classes they allow you to take before enrolling first. Once you pass them enroll and take the remaining. The books for me were a total and absolute waste of money. I didn't open them once the entire program. I used studygroup101 and even that I didn't use all that much. You can take the exams in any order you choose. I took LS1-3 last. Can't remember the order. I took them all about 2 weeks apart. Just finishing up FCCA (you can take both FCCA's at the same time) Good luck!
