As an FYI- Phoenix is known to be a "fake" degree and not worth all that much. Ive spoke to more than one person who does the hiring for a company and was told that when they see a resume with University of phoenix on it, it goes right into their "circular file".

I've never taken a CLEP, but my wife loves them. 
She takes out the CLEP book on that topic from the library to study for a couple weeks and then it's just a matter of knowing it good enough to meet the pass/fail threshold, which they usually tell you immediately upon finishing the test.

And you can't beat the price!

From what I've heard(never used myself) you can go ace, or you can register at almost any of their affiliated schools and receive the credits there only to transfer them on to whereever you want them to go to...ace is not accepted by everyone but between all of those possibilities you'll find one that is accepted by whatever school you wish to go thru...

Doing more homework as I post here, it seems they are based out of NJ?DC?...unclear...

http://www.straighterline.com/about-us/our-team.cfm

I clicked on Josef Katz twitterfeed, seems he's a frum guy...dont know if for better or for worse
(And I'm gonna get ripped for that editorial) - you can try to contact if you want...(dont know him) but maybe someone here has some shaychus...

the price really cant be beat..
