"Success in college often depends on the individual's degree of preparation before starting the course of study. Every course builds on prior experience and knowledge. The Biology CLEP exam is an excellent way to gauge a person's readiness to move ahead and identify those areas of Biology where background preparation now will promote future achievement."

“I teach introductory sociology each year, and I am confident that the CLEP Sociology exam reflects the full range of content taught in my college class. I am also an advisor and a department chair, and I strongly believe that students who enter college with credit for the CLEP Sociology exam have the foundation needed to be successful sociology majors.”

“The College Algebra CLEP Exam has the difficult task of evaluating student understanding on a great variety of topics, many of them seemingly unrelated. The questions and structure of the exam ensure that students are fairly tested and that a student who passes this exam is prepared to apply College Algebra topics in subsequent courses in various fields.”

“The CLEP exam process is a solid academic and research validated approach to insure that individuals have grasped the basic concepts of a specific subject matter. The exams are developed in concert with content experts. Questions are created, vetted, tested, and reviewed throughout the development process to insure validity and reliability, as well as to insure coverage of the entire scope of the specific subject matter being tested.”
