    Istudysmart.com is a website that guarantees you pass all their tests, which are about the same as Excelsior's. You buy the same book that you would from Excelsior, except i study smart.com send you a work book with test questions and it tells you where in the book to look up the answer if you get one wrong

    You know, I'm doing it through Excelsior, and they warn you to be careful about other people's learning devices. I got the exact textbooks, workbooks, etc. needed off of the Excelsior Website. Then went to E-Bay/Half-Bay and found most of them used, and for about half the price of anywhere else. Excelsior also has a support network and study groups and online discussions about the tests.

    I haven't tested yet, but I feel the responses and suggestions I've found at their site will be helpful.

    I also have found quite a few online sites and tutorials on various topics related to A & P, Microbiology, Chemistry, etc. that are helpful.

    There's another thread somewhere here about those who finished the Excelsior program. It seems like each person did it slightly differently---we definitely are a self-motivated bunch of 'individuals"!

    Let's keep each other posted so we can continue to compare programs.
