In the midst of rising college expenses, CLEP tests remain a best kept secret. Offered by CollegeBoard, the same organization behind the SAT, the two dozen available CLEP exams let students essentially “test out” of freshman-level courses like American Government, Analyzing and Interpreting Literature, and many more.

But you already know that – that’s why you’re here! Perhaps you’re pursuing CLEP to save money: the $85 test fee is a fraction of a normal college class. Perhaps you’re pursuing CLEP to save time: self-study lets you go faster to get ahead or finish your degree on time. Perhaps you’re here from the military: service members account for nearly a third of the 188,000 CLEP tests taken in 2016. Whatever your reason, Powerhouse Prep CLEP study guides will help you pass successfully.

You’ve made a good choice, as CLEP exams can truly revolutionize your college path. However, you will want to be careful of two things:

Prepare Properly

First, make sure you prepare properly. Data released on 2016 tests taken shows an average pass rate of just 69%. The tests aren’t hard (well most aren’t), but you do have to spend 20-40 hours studying if you expect to be successful.

Check With Your College

Second, make sure your school will accept CLEP 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 time.
