How Much Money Can I Save By Testing Out?

Real comparison of an Intro Geography Class:

INTRO TO GEOGRAPHY W/STUDENT ATLAS (Required) New Price: $125.75 – Used Price: $94.35

Wow! $95 – $125 for the text book and another $415 for tuition at public college. Over $500 for a 3 credit class!

By “Testing Out” I took Dantes Human/Cultural Geography for $70 (including proctoring fees) and used “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Geography” at amazon.com for less than $13.

It cost me a grand total of $83 for the same 3 credits! Less than the required text alone at the college bookstore.
