When I was in traditional nursing school
, I had to take the clep for eng 101 three times. CLEP informed me that my FIRST score was good enough for most schools
, but my school had a higher standard, which I nailed on the nose the 3rd time. It was still worth it to me. Unforuntately Excelsior doesn't accept the ENG101 clep test for it's written requirement, fortunately I found out after receiving my transcripts that they DID give me credit, it just doesn't fulfill the written requirement but it still eliminates 3 credits for me.
I got permission to take ENG102 through the local college, which offers an internet version, which I'll start next week. While part of me sometimes thinks I should just go for the exam on the off chance that I can get into the CPNE sooner and don't want to be held back waiting for these credits, I don't think I would want to go through that type of testing again -- and I've written well enough to be published (just a couple articles). Not at Excelsior/prometric rates anyway.

This exam you took was the EC Test? Was your English test a Prometric or Clep exam? I'm surprised it was a handwritten test! I thought typing was required. Were you given a choice of formats inwhich to take the test? Were you given a pencil with an eraser? Were you required to use a pen?
Were you instructed as to what subject to write about? Was there a multiple choice section of the test? I would like to know what to expect.
I'm told I write well. That opinion belongs to my prejudiced FRIENDS tho! I only need an english class for 3 credits. I don't know which class I should take. I need some words of wisdom too. It's hard to prepare for something I am so ignorant about. (I know that's ending a sentence with a prepostion.)
$280 is a great price for 6 credits. I have a better chance of passing, than I would playing the lotto!
