Hello All, I would love to take CLEP tests to get some credits out of the way. My question is this; how do you study for a CLEP? How long does it take? What I don't understand is, aren't you spending the same (or close) amount of time studying for a CLEP as taking the class? I would love to take US history as a CLEP and thought I knew the subject. I took a sample test and realized that I know nothing--I got all the questions wrong. Then I read some people's experiences that claim they knew nothing about the subject and do very well on a CLEP exam. :mad1: after going through the study guide, what gives? Is there a strategy to this?
