    I took Natural Sciences CLEP today, 14 December. It took me all of about 40 minutes to complete the test. There were 120 questions total. The breakdown in the CLEP Official Study Guide was pretty accurate. If you can take the General Biology CLEP also, there is a HUGE amount of overlap between the two and you would be well advised to study for them at the same time. Mitochondria came up in several questions, both its function and its "history". It seemed the exam I took was a bit more heavy on biology than physical science, but not to any great extent. Again, if you are studying for General Biology, then you'll only need to study for the physical science portion of this test. Electromagnetism, geology, gravity being points that stuck out strongly in my mind after the test due to having more than one question on them.

    All in all an easy exam if you are science minded, and probably easy if you aren't. As with all of the exams I've taken thus far, I won't get my score for about 8 weeks. Actually its 4-6 weeks from the end of the month in which I took the exam. That idiotic policy of non modern test centers! I'd be taking the computerized exams for a $15 fee in Richmond, but the center there is booked up into January and I want to have some of the tests in the chute already.

    This is exam number three for me.

    I got the Comex guide (Dated 2003) for General Natural Science Exam the other day. It is only about 120 pages. Does anyone know if this is enough to pass this exam? Thanks!

    It will help but it's not enough. Get the REA book and the Standard Deviants video if you want to pass. Good Luck!!
