About the CLEP* Exam

The American Literature (with or without Essay) CLEP exam covers what a student would know after a two-semester college level course. InstantCert's course prepares you for the multiple choice portion of the exam, focusing on familiarizing students with major American authors and their works. Students taking the version that includes an essay will need to prepare for the essay-writing portion using other resources.

The Colonial and Early National Period (Beginnings-1830)
The Romantic Period (1830-1870)
The Period of Realism and Naturalism (1870-1910)
