Hey there!

I was wondering if there's anyone else on PBS who is homeschooling through college (or if you have children who are doing this)? I just started this semester. I study at home and then take the state approved CLEP (College LEvel Examination Program) test. I can test out of most of my degree like this, and best of all the degree will be totally accredited (not to mention a lot faster and cheaper than traditional methods). :-)

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else was doing this, or if any of you had access to college level text-books I could use for studying. I usually use REA's (Research Education Association) books, because they were specificly designed for taking these tests. I don't care if the books are marked in, highlighted, missing covers or whatever--I'd just rather not pay 30+ dollars per book! :P

I have some books on my shelf. Government by the People is a first semester gvt text, and Point Counterpoint was used in the second semester English class I took through distance learning. I have more that I don't have on my shelf - a Writing From Sources book for that same English class (which was about doing research), some texts for a General Psychology class, some for a Sociology class, and I don't even remember what all. I also have the long distance guides for some of those classes - gvt, psychology and sociology for sure, and the english one I have most of but it's all marked up and used etc - but still has the TOC to use as a guide.

Anyway. PM me and let me know what you're looking for as far as subjects go, and we can probably work a deal. I won't be able to mail out until after Christmas, but I have quite a few things that may work for you. :)
