    Sad news......I failed the American CLEP.

    I thought I was prepared using instacert. Also had purchased a guide from e-bay.

    I honestly thought I was prepared--I even felt comfortable while taking the test.

    Unfortunately, this is the lowest score of 5 cleps so far.

    I took the Analyzing & Interpreting Literature yesterday and passed...but today, I got my teethed kicked in.

    Picture me scratching my head....

    I must say I was disappointed by the score, but of course I'm happy I passed.

    Actually, a 58 is only one point shy of being an A on this exam with Excelsior, so you really did pretty well.

    Plus, I think the History and Govt exams are harder than the Sociology and Psych type exams where common sense can really help you out.

    Thanks for posting your results. This helps more people than you realize. Also, I have heard from a lot of people who have failed the Literature test that you passed, so don't knock yourself too hard.

    I'm assuming you meant the American Government CLEP. This is also supposed to be one of the tougher ones. What was your final score? did you answer ALL the questions? How many questions total? About how many did you feel you did not know? Just curious. Never took this one.

    There were plenty of exams that I took that I thought I may have failed and turned out to have ACED! And the opposite is also true: thought I got most of them right, and only to find out that my score was lower than expected. Happens all the time.

    You may want to take some of the psychology /social science related CLEPS to boost your morale a little bit. These are usually a lot easier to study for.

    Remember, even if you only passed half of the exams, thats 1/2 less classes that you must take in-school. Besides, you can always re-take it 6 months down the road.

    What are your degree goals anyway?
    Please advise.

    Respectfully,

    I'm using the Princeton prep book, all of the instacert psych tests, and all of the annenberg (www.learner.org) videos.
