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:
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.
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.
Let’s be honest, the internet is full of CLEP prep material. The fastest of internet searches will turn up literally thousands of websites. So what’s different about our CLEP practice tests and study materials?
Simply put, we’ll help you get off to strong start and point you toward the best resources to continue learning. For each test we support, we’ll give you a very short overview of what you should expect to study. Then we’ve got a brief practice quiz to help you measure your current skill level. And then we’ll point out a few of our favorite places to finish studying. Or you can come here for a midway checkpoint.
Our goal is to make learning easy and fun.
