College Accelerator really works!

My goal is to receive a degree in nursing. I had applied to programs before and gotten frustrated when my scores were not high enough to be accepted. I felt defeated and the thought of retaking the test left me in fear.

I began searching the internet for any program that could help me. After finding Study.com and watching the demo, I decided to purchase the program. For the first time in over a year, I feel excited and positive about my future. I thought I wasn't smart enough, but with the way Study.com breaks the subjects down, I feel encouraged. Words cannot explain how much help this program is to me right now.

Study.com has been a life-saver for me. The videos are extremely helpful and the information was presented in a fun, engaging way.

In just a few months, I've been able to prepare for and take three proctored tests for credit, and all from the convenience of my own home.

Nothing could have been easier!

I am a very visual learner and a frugal student, for that Study.com came in handy. I love the short videos that are super entertaining and never tiring. I was able to skip buying an overpriced textbook and am instead just watching bite sized videos. Awesome!

I've passed four credit granting exams so far and earned 12 credit, all while saving money and in less than three months! I'll definitely keep using Study.com for the other transferable credit I need to earn over the next 12 months.
