Designed for enterprising high school students, the Advanced Placement (AP) program allows high school students to earn college credit through testing. While many high schools offer special AP classes, all students (including homeschooled students) have the option to take an AP test and earn college credit.
Each year, over a million students sit for an AP exam, enabling them to get a head start on college while still in high school. This saves significant money, compared to the cost of a normal college course, and it also allows students to accelerate their college careers by getting some of the more basic curriculum out of the way early. Whatever your reason, Powerhouse Prep CLEP study guides will help you pass successfully.
You’ve made a good choice by pursuing Advanced Placement, as AP exams can truly revolutionize your college path. However, you will want to be careful of two things:
First, make sure you prepare properly. Data released on 2019 tests taken show pass rates as low as 54% for US History and 64% for Biology. Some of the highest pass rate exams are actually the hardest, but appear to have high pass rates since only the most expert students sit for these exams (for instance, 88% pass rate for Chinese Language and Culture). Successfully passing your selected AP exams is completely realistic, but will require careful studying.
Second, make sure your school will accept AP credit. Most will accept at least 1-3 exams, and some will even except up to 15 or more, but check with your school before you invest the time.
The internet is full of AP prep material. The simplest of internet searches will turn up literally thousands of websites. So what’s different about our AP practice tests and study materials?
