About the CLEP* Exam

The Introductory Sociology CLEP exam covers the material that a student would generally learn in a one-semester undergraduate introductory sociology course. This exam is widely considered one of the easier CLEP exams and is a good exam to start with. Despite this reputation, it is important that you do not underestimate it. InstantCert's flashcards, studied thoroughly (i.e. truly understanding the concepts and the explanations presented rather than just memorizing the blanks), will provide you with the knowledge required to walk out of the testing center with a passing score.
