I need to get my language out of the way but don't want to waste my time/money with stupid classes. Has anyone taken the equivalency exam? Would it be possible (do you think) to bone up and learn some language on your own with computer programs and audiotapes and whatnot for a few quarters and then take the exam? It sounds like it would be a lot easier/cheaper, and you could work at your own pace and not be graded on attendance. Anyone know what they grade on for these exams (oral, specific things, etc)?
PS just so you know my official stance on this the language requirement is the dumbest requirement in the history of requirements =(
