<p>Looking over the syllabus (ppt) for cs 2100/2060 I noticed that it is mostly based upon MS Office. IF I am already Certified by MS as an expert in Access, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel is there any way to waive this class, or will I just have to pay for an extremely easy "A"?</p>

<p>I'd suggest talking directly with your major's department leader about things like that. Of course certain people you ask (like the course teacher his/herself) are going to push you to take it. I had people continually tell me that I'd have to take MAC1105, but at orientation, the adviser for my major told me that I didn't because I already met the requirements for going onto the next math class for my major.</p>

<p>Oh and I see that you can actually CLEP out of 2060, so you might want to do that.</p>

<p>Do you have the top bright futures scholarship? If so, I suggest against CLEPping the class. It will end up being about the same cost, and at least you will get an A towards your GPA, as opposed to just an exam credit. It's something to think about.</p>

<p>For the record, the class is an easy A, even if you're not certified by MS.</p>

<p>I would take it just because it will be a VERY easy A, and every little bit helps when it comes to your GPA.</p>

<p>Guess i'll stick with it. The textbook is kinda expensive for something I can figure out myself. Does the professor ever assign anything from it?</p>

<p>what is the textbook for the course?</p>
