    congrats! way to go! There's usually a wait period of about 6mths b4 you take the CPNE. you may want to save one Gen Ed course for that wait period so you dont get bored.
    That's what I did. I was CPNE-eligible and still had Micro, my Lifespan CLEP, and my sociology CLEP remaining. I applied for CPNE in early November, did Micro later in November, did a CPNE workshop in December, did my two CLEPs in January, and studied for the remainder of my CPNE wait. I got my date in April, went to CPNE in June. It worked well for me!

    can you do any nursing courses while you wait or do you have to do them before you schedule your clinicals?

    I have the Lifespan Test at the end of this month and Anatomy next month. I am so tired here lately & am not in the mood to study. However I am glad that you are able to shine some light as to what is on the test. I am having a hard time staying interested and on topic with this subject.

    I need some help. I'm finally starting excelsior. When I look at the study guides, I'm very confused on what book or books to get. So many seem to be listed. I'm not sure if I'm looking in the right place. Does every text have a study guide or something? I'm taking lifespan psych first...so which books do I need to prepare?

    Congrats to those who passed. I chose to do lifespan psychology at my local community college because I needed the humanities credits anyway. I have my book A Topical Approach to Life-Span Development, Third Edition by John W. Santrock that I am happy to pass on for free. I was going to send it to the library, but if someone can make good use of it I will send it out. Best Wishes

    i know it can be confusing. what you can do is to look at ec's bookstore online. each course has a list of books you need for that course. most times there are up to 7-8 books for that course. should you buy all 7 books? i dont think so. i basically buy the book that is mostly listed on the course outline and most times i use one book per course. i dont buy my books from ec bookstore bcos they're too pricey for me. i take the name of the book and search for it on amazon.com. the last bookseller i had on amazon.com has some tcn books she's willing to sell for cheaps. pm me for her email. i usually buy used books and i found out that you can save a ton of money from buying older editions (they're not too different). you can call me cheap if you like .

    If you go to the online bookstore and type in your class, it will tell you required texts and suggested texts. They are also listed in the coarse guide. I have a large book bundle for sale on ebay with all the required and recommended texts as well as the coarse guide if you are interested. Search ebay for Lifespan Psychology and you will see the bundle. This was all I used to study for the exam. I probably over bought books, but I was well prepared.

    I am taking this course now and I like it; it is reiterating a lot concepts that I didn't know I knew!

    Good luck to everyone this semester!
