clep.collegeboard.org Introduction This is the only ofcial guide to the College-Level Examination Program ® (CLEP ® ) exams. CLEP exams are administered on computers at test centers across the country. This guide has been written for adults making plans to enroll in college, and it contains information of interest to others as well. College-bound high school students, current college students, military personnel, professionals seeking certifcation, and persons of all ages who have learned or wish to learn college-level material outside the college classroom will fnd the guide helpful as they strive to accomplish their goals. CLEP is based on the premise that some individuals enrolling in college have already learned part of what is taught in college courses through job training, independent reading and study, noncredit adult courses, and advanced high school courses. Often, their jobs and life experiences have enhanced and reinforced their learning. CLEP gives these individuals a chance to show their mastery of college-level material by taking exams that assess knowledge and skills taught in college courses. The frst few sections of this guide explain how CLEP can earn you credit for the college-level learning you have acquired and provide suggestions for preparing for the exams. The individual exam section includes test descriptions, sample questions, and study tips.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
