" I just wanted to share with you all the success I've had with the help of your site. I passed the Western Civilization II CLEP with a 67, the Introduction to Sociology with a 77, and the Biology CLEP with a 65. I'm starting my Master's this semester, so I don't need any more CLEP. I recommend the site to anyone I know who needs some extra credit. "- Pamela Riley, Fort Worth, TX
