  •  Yup. Did the AP thing a few years ago. (3+ / 0-)

    Did well in the classes, but (of course) they bore little semblance to actual college courses. Took the tests only because we were guaranteed our money back if we scored above certain levels.

It's yet another part of society we've sold to the highest bidders at the expense of our population.
