Taj reed asked me, which is easier, clep exams or sophia. If you don’t know what those are. I’Ve got videos explaining both in my description and up here, but i’m going to split that question into a few different ones, which is cheaper, which is faster, which is easier which do colleges like better and which one is best for you. So first, let’s talk price, clep exams, cost about 89 a piece, and then you typically have to pay 25 to 50 for a sitting fee at a testing center. Plus you have to pay for steady resources for them, so the average price comes out to about 150 per clap sophia.


On the other hand, costs 79 a month flat and you can take as many courses as you want in that month. So, unless you’re taking sofia courses really really slowly, it’s gon na be cheaper every time. Second, let’s talk speed and honestly this one’s a little bit more complicated because it depends on you if you already know a clep subject like you’re, a us history like genius, you could probably go take the us history, one clep tomorrow and pass and just be done With it sophia, on the other hand, has a little bit more busy work. You’Ve got to go through challenges and like challenges, build up units which each have like basically an end tester project, and then the all the units come together to have like this giant final tester exam. And so you have to go through each of these steps.


To get to the end, hitting certain scores along the way, but if you know what you’re doing you can still fly through it in like maybe a long weekend, if you really know the subject, i tested sofia and i made it through about four percent of their College algebra course in about five minutes which, if you extrapolate out, means that i could probably finish it later this evening, because you know i kind of know my stuff with college algebra. But if i was doing the like the chemistry course that could take me weeks or even like a month, because i honestly hate and know very little about chemistry. Similarly with clep exams, if you don’t know anything about the material it could take. You like two to four weeks to be ready to be able to pass it biology, even took me like three months to be able to be ready to pass it. But that’s because i wasn’t using the strategies in this video over here.


So, basically, at the end, though, clep and sofia are tied for speed. So third, let’s talk easiness. The question of easiness really depends on you and partially on whether you prefer to take tests or to take courses that involve like smaller stakes tests, but at the end of the day, i think that if i had to get credits in college algebra, i would probably Just go take the clep test, because for me that would be easier, just like one test and i’m done i’d study for a few hours every day for a couple of days just to bone up and then i’d be ready to take it. If i didn’t know a subject very well, i like chemistry. I would be much more likely to go.


Take the sofia test because it’s just more of a sure thing that you’ll pass with clep it’s one shot and if you fail, you have to wait three months before you’re able to take the test again, whereas with sophia. It’S a course where you can kind of see your progress along the way and know what you need to work on and just because you messed up on one test doesn’t mean you have to. You know completely start over, so it really depends on you. But there are some super easy clep tests like up in this video, and there are some resources out there for studying clep tests like in this video that, basically all but guarantee that you’re going to pass the clep test. But even still, at the end of the day, sofia might be the more reliable, steady subject for for exams or for subjects that are a little bit harder and fourth, let’s talk colleges so far, it probably sounds like sophia is winning, but what really really matters here Is which one of these two, your college is going to accept more than 2 900 different colleges except clep, and many many fewer except sophia?


Last i heard it was somewhere around like 300 and at the same time, the more prestigious your school is, the more likely they are to prefer clep over sofia. After all, like their whole deal is that they charge you money to teach you courses. So it’s a little bit less likely that they would want. You know some third-party company to come in and undercut them by like hundreds and hundreds of dollars and then for them to work with them so that they can more easily undercut your college by hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Thankfully, all the colleges i talk about in my five best online colleges for busy adults, video all except sofia to you – know some level or another.


So you don’t have to worry about it with a lot of online colleges, but a lot of like residential and public programs, and even a lot of private schools are just less likely to take sophia and they might even be pickier with clep too. But the fact remains that clep has just been around longer and it’s a little bit more trusted. So it’s more likely that your schools are going to accept clap and, at the same time, this question kind of invalidates to an extent questions one through three, because if you know what your college accepts and it’s either clep or sophia, not both. Then your decisions, kind of made up for you like you’ve, got to take the one your college accepts and most of the time that decision will be clep. So fifth and final question, which of these clepper sofia is best for you and to answer that we have to you know, ask some questions number one.


Does your college accept? You know one over the other. If the answer is both well, then the question is: does one or the other fit into your degree plan? If it’s both, then the question is, you know, does clep or sofia fit your speed and financial goals and if they match up pretty evenly, then the question is: how well do i know the subject? At the end of the day, i tend to find that sofia is better, if you don’t know the subject or if you want to save a little bit extra money.


But i find that clep is better. If you know the subject really well or if you have a pick your school, but at the end of the day, your college plan is your college plan. I’Ve shared the pros and cons, and now it’s up to you to make the decision. If you’d like to do a college planning consultation with me, i can save tens of thousands of dollars for you and years of time off of your life, so that you can build a career that you love and, if you’re interested in that the link is in The description, happy clapping and sofiane and happy hacking
