Quote from susyn153
I'm not far along, chose to chicken out and take the lesser credit english and technical writing. I like to memorize long lists of junk, like for chemistry or something, only one answer, you know or you don't . oh well, at least if I fail technical writing it will be a cheap do-over, lol. thanks for the buck-up though. best of luck to you as well, susyn153
i hope i didn't scare you off....i didn't mean that! i just wanted to give you a heads up to what i know, and learned on my own, in my own decision to take/not take the eng comp exam. i finally got my final grade on my COURSE with ec, got a "b". but it was hard, papers galore in APA style, research, etc. i guess after being used to taking ec's exams at a prometric
center, i didn't like having to follow a set "schedule". and ec's courses are expensive, it cost 700 dollars for the eng comp course, which is 3 credits. but i'm glad it's over!
good luck to you. and don't forget, when you register for the college writing exam at ec, you get free help from ec's writing center. i think that's what it's called. it's on the ec website. they will evaluate your writing for free once registered for the exam, help you focus on what you need to.
