  • Want College Credit With One Exam?

    Have you heard of DSST? These are college equivalency exams that were developed to award students college credit for knowledge they can demonstrate is equal to that taught in a college course. Translation: there’s no need to re-take a course if you already know the material. Schools vary on both their acceptance of DSST course credit awarded and on their standards for passing scores on these exams. It’s always a good idea to check with your school to see what their policy is as you might be able to study and earn college credit by taking just one exam for that course. It’s easy to see how testing out of college courses can save time, money, stress from a course you don’t like, and get you one step closer to graduation!

    iStudySmart.com is officially endorsed by DSST as being a leader in DSST test preparation. iStudySmart.com not only provides the study material necessary to gain the knowledge for each DSST course exam, but also provides practice exams in most subjects for eager students to test their knowledge before exam day. Students can start preparing and taking DSST exams as early as high school and start earning college credit in their free time. College students will also appreciate only having to pass one exam instead of attending semester long classes and studying for numerous exams throughout the course. Parents will enjoy savings in tuition cost when their high school and college-bound students have already finished a semester or even years’ worth of college classes by testing out with DSST.
