Testimonials for the A History of the Vietnam War DANTES Study Guide


Great product, passed test 1st try! – Robert W.


Hello, I used your materials to pass the following tests. I found them very helpful and especially like the flash cards. It was nice to have one study guide to use rather than a listing of expensive books to choose from.

1. Intro to Business
2. Intro to Computing
3. Drug and Alcohol Abuse
4. Human Resource Management

Thank you, Janell K.


I have taken 7 DSST/CLEP exams over the past 12 months and passed all of them with flying colors by using your study guides (Intro to Business, Business Law, Intro to Sociology, Humanities, Intro to World Religion, Business Ethics & Society, Principles of Marketing) -Chris G.


I just wanted to add to the testimonies on the web site. I took DANTES “Health and Human Development” test on July 20th, and I passed it with a score of 445 (needed 400). I had the study materials for only a week and a half, and they were very concisely written and to the point. They are well done, and I learned a lot in such a short amount of time, so I could pass the test. I would not have been able to start graduate school without it, because I had deficit undergrad credits that I needed to satisfy; this test and your study materials fit the bill nicely! -Jen M.
