Prepare For Credit By Exam
Get ready to pass your exam with content guides, learning resources, practice tests, and more.
UEXCEL EXAM CONTENT GUIDES
UExcel content guides explain what you need to learn for each exam and include lists of recommended textbooks, a detailed content outline, links to online learning resources, and sample exam questions. These resources are recommended by the same Excelsior College faculty who develop the exams. Content guides are updated periodically to reflect changes in particular exams and textbooks, so be sure you have the most recent guide before taking your exam.
To ensure you’ve studied all the material that may be included in your exam, be sure to read the recommended textbook(s) listed in the exam’s content guide—and especially, in the content outline within each content guide.
UExcel practice exams let you take a timed test on your personal computer of the same length, format, and difficulty of the actual exam you’ll take on site at a Pearson VUE test center—or through online proctoring, now available for most exams. Practice exam information is included on each exam’s page. To sign up for practice exams you must be registered for your official exam. Note: Not all exams have a practice exam available for purchase with the exam for credit. See each exam’s page for more detail on specific resources to support study for that exam.
Work with a tutor online in real-time or submit questions or essays. You can also pre-schedule online appointment. Choose from a wide variety of subjects. Log into My Courses (Canvas) and click on a course title. The TutorMe link will be in the Courses navigation bar to the left.
ONLINE LIBRARY SERVICES
If you’re enrolled in a program or course at Excelsior, you’ll be able to use Excelsior’s online library that provides access to millions of authoritative publications and media resources, librarian support services, and resource pages for many of our UExcel exams. Excelsior’s library services are provided through a special arrangement with The Johns Hopkins University.
TUTORIALS FOR TESTING—YOUR WAY
Familiarize yourself with computer-based testing with Pearson VUE’s free testing tutorials for your preferred way to test, either at a testing center or through remote proctoring. Some restrictions apply for remote proctoring.
OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
Open educational resources (OER) are free or low-cost online materials you can use to support your study on many topics in various formats for different learning styles. Not a substitute for the exam-specific study resources.
