Practice Questions and Study Guides

College Board study guides contain official CLEP practice questions to help you prepare for your exam.

Before taking a CLEP exam, your knowledge of the subject matter will be the foundation of your success. To help you prepare for an exam, practice using actual test questions and official study guides. This will help increase your speed, confidence, and accuracy come test day.

Get Official Study Guides

The CLEP Official Study Guide covers all 34 CLEP exam topics in one comprehensive book. It includes practice questions for all exams, exam descriptions, information on getting credit for CLEP, and test-taking tips and strategies. This book is ideal for test takers planning to take more than two exams.

If you plan to take just one or two CLEP exams, consider purchasing individual CLEP Exam Guides instead. These guides contain the same practice questions that are available in the CLEP Official Study Guide, but are broken out by subject into separate, downloadable PDFs.

Study guides are available for purchase in the College Board Store, or you can add them to your shopping cart when you register for an exam.

CORRECTION: The answer key for question #47 in the Principles of Microeconomics Examination Guide is incorrect. The correct answer is A.

Download the CLEP Study Guide App

You can also buy the Official CLEP Study Guide App from examIam so you can practice for the exam on your mobile device. The app contains the same information and practice questions found in the CLEP Exam Study Guides. It also includes diagnostic tools to help you identify your test-taking strengths and weaknesses.

Practice with Sample Questions

Practicing with sample questions is a great way to get a sense of the CLEP exam format and difficulty level before you choose to purchase the study guides. Browse through sample questions in the resources section below or download exam-specific fact sheets with additional sample questions (also available on each exam page).
