The popularity of dual credit classes for high school students, and the availability of online courses, and credit-by-examination, is on the rise due to the extreme high cost of a college degree. For those who are growing impatient with the traditional "brick and mortar" campus where you buy expensive text books and sit in class, many have saved money and time by "CLEPING out". CLEP testing is the fastest and most economical way to complete college credit based on your life experiences and material related to a course in which one is already proficient. For the courses covering material not yet mastered, there are the CLEP tests with excellent study guides for preparing for the CLEP exam.
This is where the beauty of the credit-by-examination gives the candidate flexibility in how they approach their particular degree plan. In order to just pick up some extra credits due to having dropped a course, or a change of degree plan, it is possible to avoid falling behind by scheduling a week to CLEP out of a course of two. For those who are working and going to school, CLEP exams can be a life saver. It is possible to complete your degree while totally using a credit-by-exam plan. Most people use the credit-by-exams to either fill in some gaps on their transcript, or in conjunction with other means to earn their degree.
Read the testimony below describing how Larry T. utilized CLEP tests to complete his education.
"My education was completed using different distance learning educational opportunities, CLEP tests, remote college classes, visiting student, and correspondence. I was in the US Navy for nine years and it was difficult to continue my education. I used CLEP exams to add credits; I took a correspondence course when I needed to complete a course requirement for Library Science; and I used the visiting student status at Univ. MO at St. Louis to complete my degree. When an adult with a family is trying to complete their college education, nothing is more appreciated than distance learning educational opportunities including CLEP exams to help them." Larry T.

The best way to save time is in the preparation for each CLEP exam. The most effective prep for the CLEP is found in "THE CLEP Study Guides". These guides are designed to prepare the student for "standardized" exams, and include sample questions and practice tests which will reveal any area which might need some additional study.
The practice tests are also a big help in preparing for the real exam. By using a timer, one can learn how to set the pace necessary to complete the test in the time allowed. The score on the test is based on the number of correct answers so the more answers the better the score. After all these are multiple choice "standardized" tests with 5 possible answers. If all the choices are made randomly, 20% is the lowest likely score. The CLEP tests are not graded the same way that the typical college exam is graded. The grading norm is based upon the scores of people who have previously taken the CLEP exam.
Remember to prepare the mind with study, prepare your body with rest and nutrition, and prepare your soul with prayer and you will do well on your exam.
