CLEP Pass! American Government

CLEP Pass! American Government

Celebrate with me! My oldest scholar passed American Government CLEP test this morning. She earned high school credit for the course and 3 college credits. We purchased about $50 worth of study materials and the test was $80. The equivalent class at the community college costs $453 + textbook.

Here's what she used to study:
REA CLEP Prep book which includes practice test
Barrons AP US Government & Politics Flash cards
Crash Course videos -- free on You Tube -- these don't appeal to me at all, but she says they helped her

I'll happy dance with you!!!!!

oh yeah!


(I'm curious and seems timing to ask: which college does she hope to transfer it to ? ok if you don't know yet.. don't want to take away from the happy dance moment)

That's great news!

CLEP tests are a great way to get college credit and save money. These days, you often can't even buy the textbook for a college course for what a CLEP test costs.

ChaChing!

cbollin,

The community college where she is attending for her senior year will accept the CLEP and 2 of the 3 universities that she is interested in will also accept this test. If she does end up at the more elite university, I still think it was worth her time and effort since it counts on her high school transcript.

Next she's going to take the American History I CLEP.
