SpeedyPrep for Homeschoolers


SpeedyPrep

Hey neighbors!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Here is a really helpful course for homeschoolers that we recently reviewed.  It is called SpeedyPrep, and is an online program to prepare your student to take the CLEP exam.  You can learn a little more about SpeedyPrep courses by visiting their actual website.  The CLEP college credits are accepted by nearly 2,900 colleges and universities.

SpeedyPrep was more for us about learning where my daughter is at in different courses.  We personally will not be taking the CLEP exams.  What we did was, I allowed my daughter to go through and work on different courses and see what she knew and what she would need improvement on.  She still has more to do, but unfortunately this turned into one of those months where she had to grab 15-20 minutes here and there to work on SpeedyPrep.  For the record though, I went in and started one just to see how it worked.  I was amazed at what I remembered.

SpeedyPrep

Here is a partial list of the different courses available, that are all included.
American Government
American Literature
Analyzing and Interpreting Literature
Biology
College Algebra
College Composition
College Mathematics
English Literature
Human Growth and Development
Humanities
And many more.

Basically there is a written Intro to each subject.  There are also videos to help you along, but the main learning is done on the flash card questions.  When you start a session, there are questions to answer.  You can pause or stop a course at any time and then come back to it.  It will record the amount of time spent, so if you have to leave for several minutes, you may want to exit the course and then re-start when you return.  Finish the question and then you may choose to submit them, or go look them over again.  When you submit them, you are told how many you correctly answered, and how many were wrong.  You may then choose to take it again, or study a little before re-taking the session.  You may only attempt answering each session 3 times.  There is a bar, for each course that tracks your progression through the course by percentage finished or completed.  Watching the videos does not count toward your progress.  Be aware, that it is answering the questions that will prepare your student for the CLEP exams.

SpeedyPrep

The cost of the course does not include the CLEP exam price.  Your student must complete the course before taking the exam, for the guarantee to be valid.  The course is designed for one student, as the total on the progress bar is only for one, so their results would actually be combined if more than one student studied a particular subject.

SpeedyPrep allows your student to take the CLEP exam for a course right from home.  They state that there are presently 33 courses that can be "clepped".

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).
