    It varies, some days more than others, depends on work.

    Are your courses locked in at the beginning of the term or can you add classes at any time?
  • EddieW818EddieW818 Posts: 16Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    Locked in, once you start the term. but you can change them before you start the term. And once you complete your initial 3 classes for the term you can accelerate any class forward in your degree plan.

    Mentor is saying CEH courseware is pushed back to Mid May, so looks like either VLT2 or FXT2. Thoughts?

    Get through FXT2 if you can get it done early. The assignments are HUGE, and very involved. I had to resubmit multiple times, so I would tackle this just to get it out of the way.
