I am CONTEMPLATING "studying" for a few tests. I would like to hear from ANYONE that ACTUALLY particpates in this istudysmart.com program. Tell me HOW it works for you. Is it complicated? Is it real? I mean is it obtainable? Do we pay for the course and the test combined? Or do we have to PAY to TAKE the test also? SOMEONE please email me with this information. I tried ceu4u.com and was only awarded a certificate for my time and money. There were NO real credits to transfer. What a waste~! Please respond to: soulart1@yahoo.com
I would appreciate ANY feedback from a CURRENT student here. Thanx!

You do earn REAL credit. This is how it works. I study for my test using istudysmart and then I go and take my test. You pay for the test because it's a separate company. When you pass your test you receive real credit as if you spent time in a classroom and took the final. I had to check with my school to make sure they would accept the credit from the test. Some colleges require a certain score or only let certain tests transfer.

Can you tell me anything about if the courses make a differece if they are upper or lower level.
Does it matter when you clep out?

I believe most CLEP and DANTES exams are basic and intermediate, first 2 years of College, but it depends on the exam.

Example: Ethics in America is basic and Civil War and Reconstruction is listed as upper.

You should check with your school. Charter Oak State College lists their acceptable exams and what level they are.

You can earn upper level credits as well, but make sure you consult with your advisor or counselor. It depends on the college you attend and the degree program you participate in, there are different requirements for each program.

So we pay $99 to study and 29.99 a month, plus the fee to take the test???

You pay EITHER $29.95 a month to subscribe to the courses OR $99-$169 to purchase a single course. Text books are bought separately. There are testing fees to pay upon registering to take the exams. They range in price from $46-$252 depending on the exam. If this is confusing, please call istudysmart at 800-737-2222! Emily istudysmart

I have checked out the books to study for a test and then gone to a test sight. I passed a few and failed a couple. Does this increase your chances at passing??

Hey there, you seem to know what your talking about. I just need 16 electives to finish my BA, I'm the one who has taken these dantes at a testing site, paid $15 for a registration fee and $40 for the actual test. I was given a book to check out and a study guide. I passed three of the tests and failed one twice. This sounds like it might be a bit easier to study with, I'm in the middle of relocation and have a 20 month old, not alot of time on my hands. Can you please take some time out and summarize this. I would appreciate it. Thanks!!!

Hello beli71
I am thinking of starting to take the courses. Please can you clarify the sequence of events and the total fees you paid?
did you first need to pay $15 for registration,
then $40 for the actual test,
then - did you buy the book (you say check out)
what about the study guide?

what course exam did you take?
How are your studies going now?

How is your baby?
THanks for your time.
