I'm so excited, I just had to let you know that, thanks in part to you, my son (10th grader) passed the Western Civ I CLEP today! First, you assured me in one of your free calls, that Sonlight's Core 6 (World History part 1) would be fine to do with my 2 when they were in 7th and 9th with some Teaching Co. DVDs (which is something we enjoyed doing vs switching to a "High School level" course that he'd have to do alone). Then, throughreading your book, watching your DVD, and reading your blog about all the advantages of the CLEP, I decided to try having my son take the CLEP when we were done. He used a CLEP study book and a little InstaCert and got a 63 when 50 is passing and 56 qualified him for credit at the college he's thinking of going to! Like you said, he's saving thousands of dollars by clepping out of that course, validating our homeschool grades, and I think I can count that World History course as honors, if I'm not mistaken. Regardless, I'm ecstatic, and thank you so much for all you do! I wanted you to put it on your blog so others could hear how much you help!
