    It's nice to see CLEPs are still around. In 1966, I took CLEPs in Modern European History and History of Western Civi. That's 54 YEARS AGO, when credit for exams was new I was on my way out of the Marines and had some rake time so I decided to study for them. My fellow jarheads thought I was nuts.

    That’s a great report, warguns! I wonder how much a CLEP test cost back then? Do you remember where you took it (was it on a base somewhere, or a traditional college location?)?

    I also wonder how the questions on those tests back then would compare with the questions on those same subject tests today.

    In the 80s and early 90s, I took a bunch of CLEP/DSST at a testing center in the same trailer as my education office. Back then it was free all-you-can-eat CLEP and DANTES, including retakes (after the mandatory waiting period). Now the first attempt is funded and you pay for retakes. You wouldn't think a #2 pencil and some time could get you a ton of credits, but it did.
