Even though I had more than 8 credits in computer related classes, I was being told I still had to take this fundamentals class! Bunk! I am smart enough to know that computers are always changing, but then so am I. I have been staying abreast of the computer revolution and still know my computer stuff. Although I have more that oodles to learn and keep learning.
Anyway, the registrar's office was telling me that I needed the class because my credits were so old. Would you agree with them that my classes from 1980 were too old? I don't agree with them, but I would possible agree if the credits were not mine and I had not paid for them. I totally agree with their decision, even though I don't like it. They said that my other class credits from 1979 and 1983 would probably not transfer as well. I hope this is unique to this college. But then I don't have to worry about it until I decide to do my Associates Degree. Then we will cross that bridge.
Anyway, I looked at the course for the computer fundamentals and decided it was too mundane and fundamental. I had much better things to do with my time if I could pass the test and test out of the class. So I paid my $25 and took the test. You had to have an 84% to pass and I got a 94%, an A, so I passed the class. I am pleased with myself and grateful that it will save me money on tuition, about $900 and that means that much less on a student loan. Yes!
So there you have it, I tested out of Computer Fundamentals and saved me some money too.
