Think of DSSTPrep as the review for the exam and these resources as the “lecture”.

DSST exams are multiple-choice. Our flashcard system requires you to really learn the answers. If you have learned an answer to a question so you can type it in, then you will be able to choose it from a multiple-choice list.

You don’t need to know the answers to the flashcard questions when you start using DSSTPrep…because our system will teach you the answers! After you type an answer to a question, the correct answer will appear, along with an explanation and sometimes a video. Read the answer and any explanation. You will encounter every question in your subject many times. With repeated study sessions, you will learn the correct answers. Your progress bar will fill in as you answer the questions correctly multiple times.

DSSTPrep’s flashcards are not actual DSST questions. Our flashcard questions will teach you the facts and concepts of the subject you are studying.

DSST examinations are selected from a ‘library’ of questions for each subject. DSSTPrep’s flashcard questions are our ‘library’ to teach you the facts and concepts of the subject you are studying. You will master many more questions in your subject in DSSTPrep than what you will face on your examination.

Because repetition is the path to learning! You will answer every question in your study subject multiple times in order to fill in your progress bar. It is this repetition that burns the answers into your memory.

Your progress bar will reach 100% after you answer the questions correctly multiple times. Mastery learning technique is based on the understanding that the brain has to be exposed to information many times before the memory holds on to what has been learned.

DSST Explained

If experience is the world’s greatest teacher, then your experiences may well qualify you for college credit. The nationally recognized DSST Credit-by-Exam Program gives students the opportunity to get college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional classroom. With more than 30 exam titles in college subject areas such as Social Sciences, Math, Applied Technology, Business, Physical Sciences, and Humanities, DSST exams shorten the pathway to graduation while reducing college costs.

Prior learning assessment tools like DSST Exams offer students a cost-effective, time-saving way to use knowledge acquired outside of the classroom (from personal research, on-the-job training, independent study, work or military field experience) to accomplish their educational goals. Over 1,500 colleges and universities recognize the DSST program and award college credit for passing scores. Colleges, universities and corporations throughout the United States and in some other countries administer tests year-round. The cost for each DSST exam is $100. Administering institutions may charge a test administration fee according to their school policy.

The American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for all 30+ DSST exams. The American Council on Education, the major coordinating body for all the nation’s higher education institutions, seeks to provide leadership and a unifying voice on key higher education issues and to influence public policy through advocacy, research, and program initiatives. ACE CREDIT connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit at colleges and universities for formal courses and examinations taken in the workplace or other settings outside traditional higher education.
