How to Prep for your CLEP exam

If you already have a lot of background knowledge in a subject, you may decide to try taking a CLEP test without studying. However, feedback from our students has shown that even in those cases, just a little bit of specialized studying for the exam can dramatically increase your chances of getting a PASS on your first attempt.

If you are looking for a quick and effective way to learn just enough to pass the exam, InstantCert's flashcards are a very popular option. Click on any of the test titles in the table above to see more details on our CLEP prep materials for that subject.

Other Exams Like CLEP

CLEP is the most popular of the examination programs for "testing out" of credit, but there is one other exam program that is extremely valuable for earning credit at Liberty: the DSST exam program.

The advantage of DSST is that it offers other subjects that are not offered by CLEP, and more importantly, it includes a few UPPER-level exams, i.e. 300 or 400-level classes you can get credit for.

For more information, check out Liberty's page for DSST: DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) | Liberty University.

InstantCert also offers prep materials for most DSST. For a complete list of our study guides, check: Our DSST Study Guides
