This new course will save Latino students tens of thousands of dollars this year alone -Luke Macias

Although the economy is still in its recovery stage the cost of college seems to be rising at a rate that has been unaffected by the economic down turn our nation has experienced. There seems to be a disconnect from the pain families are feeling because of the reduction of income they have experienced and the exorbitant price tag on a college education. In today’s economy a college degree is nearly unavoidable and as a result families are being forced to take on even more debt to compensate for the hard times we are in.
One of the biggest demographics that are currently struggling is Latino students ages 16-25. Back in 2009 the Pew Hispanic Center did a study which concluded that 89% of Latino students 16-25 believed that a college education was important for their success in life. Unfortunately only 48% said that they planned to go to college. The number one reason students had for not pursuing an education was financial pressure to support their family.
The sad thing about this situation is that very little has changed in the last 2 years. Latino students still value education as vital to their success but unfortunately still have financial pressure which has been exacerbated by the continued economic downturn.
To alleviate the financial burden these students feel and propel them forward in their education SpeedyPrep has launched a new CLEP Spanish study guide! The Spanish CLEP test offers Latino students an opportunity to test out of up to 10% of their college degree with as little as 2 weeks of studying.
Many Latino students speak Spanish as a first or second language and if they can get 12 college credits for that skill then SpeedyPrep wants to help them do that. The study guide can be accessed completely online and students can take as long as they need to study for their course. This course has the potential to save students thousands of dollars on their college education and we can be part of giving students the motivation they need to launch into their degree then that’s what we want to do.
SpeedyPrep is an online CLEP preparation company which has provided quality study guides to thousands of students since 2007. Their innovative approach to test preparation and higher education is providing students the necessary tools to bypass semesters of study with the knowledge they already have.
