Don't be discouraged, Kelly. I spent a LONG time getting that Associate degree because I worked full time with a daughter, mortage, etc. Then a failed marriage, move, etc. Back then the program did not move as fast as it does now. I could not afford any of the CPNE practices, but I did use the CPNE video and was lucky enough to find some of the study sites and learned mneomics. (spell?) Anyway, this site is great for motivation, getting questions answered, and you may find some current study information! I am currently pursuing my BS with an eye on the MS. The Excelsior experience has proven invaluable.
