Ok so I have only taken Tranistions and Health safety so far and really want to finish THIS YEAR!!! I also need sociology, eng. lit and one other elective. UGH!! I have to admit, while this rout is easier for me, it's really easy to get complacent and loose track!! :uhoh3: My new years resoloution was to get back on the horse and ride like the wind until I am done! I'm thinking an exam every 3 weeks? I also work 4 days a week and have 2 pretty active kids at home so it can be tough. Taking Repro in 2 weeks so we'll see, then Chronicity thenon to LS1,2,3!!:D

I have 4 exams left, and my goal is to finish by the Summer... I have a 6month old who also want to play lol, & it seems everytime I am about to open the book she is up & coooos lol. Anyways, hang in there... you can do it.

You can do it!!! I have two little kids, working, took Micro and Dev Psych on campus, and I took 5 classes thru Excelsior last semester!! Though I have to admit, I have gained 10lbs, have not seen my friends, and my house looks like a tornado went thru it!!! We will be done soon and then we can revisit with friends (and exercise, hehe)

My hubby is the best, thank goodness for his support!! K

We are not that far off, and I most definately plan on being done this year! I want to be done by the end of summer. I am taking Repo Thursday, have started LS1 have LS2, 3 and transitions done by April. The hardest part is finding time every day....but it can be done! Good luck!

I have THREE kiddos 2, 4 and 6, i work night shift, hubby is in the Army...as you can see in my signature it is VERY possible to get through this program! All my "free" time is spent studying though, and i worked out times with my husband that he has "kid duty" and "dinner/chore duty" to help me out =) I completed 8 requirements within 6 mo, and i plan on having my last 4 requirements finished in the next 8-10 wks =) One thing i did was make a study plan, this keeps me on track, i also take the study guide and each section i "assign" myself "due dates" of when the reading/workbook material needs to be finished by. This really helps to keep me going...also i write on a calendar what days i wanna take my exam for example: LS3 - Jan 15th, Micro- Jan 28th, Life Span Psych- Feb 19th, Humanities CLEP- Feb 25th, FCCA - FEB, CPNE April/May...the dates can change as i move along but if i have due dates i tend to stick pretty close to them!

Good luck!

Anything is possible if you work hard at it. Good luck.
