Not sure I needed this one March 28 2012
By Duane - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased 5 REA CLEP books:
CLEP Introduction to Educational Psychology (CLEP Test Preparation)
CLEP Introductory Sociology w/CD (REA) - The Best Test Prep for the CLEP Exam (Test Preps)
CLEP Biology w/ CD-ROM (CLEP Test Preparation)
CLEP College Mathematics w/CD-ROM (CLEP Test Preparation)
CLEP Analyzing & Interpreting Literature w/ Online Practice Exams (CLEP Test Preparation)

I also purchased the CLEP Official Study Guide 2012. This was only worthwhile because I was taking so many tests. It only contains a sample test for each CLEP - and there are no detailed answers. I will say I think it was helpful but I also do not believe it made a real difference in terms of pass / fail on the tests.

For the first three listed, it was enough to read the books a couple of times and then take the tests. Some of the material wasn't on the CLEP and there was material on the CLEP that was not in the book. That is to be expected given the broad topics covered. There is enough material in each of these three books to pass the CLEP they cover. I crammed a full semester of these classes into two weeks of study.

**NOTE** The sample tests are an important part of the learning process. There is information in the tests and detailed answers that is not covered elsewhere in the text. Do not underestimate the need to review the sample tests. They also give you good practice on timing. I considered this important for the Math and Literature tests. I was worried about spending too much time on each question for these last two. This is why I was disappointed with the lack of computer based testing with the Literature book.

The other two CLEP books require specific reviews.

College Mathematics: This was the toughest of the five for me personally. I do not feel the book covered the material in enough depth to prepare you for the test. It assumed you knew an awful lot that I did not know. There are drill questions at the end of each section. It would have been more helpful if they included detailed answers. There were a couple that I never did figure out. I do not consider myself math challenged but I also admit that I am not a math major. I spent a lot of time on-line utilizing other resources. My thanks to:
Analyzing and Interpreting Literature: I'm not sure this book really added value for me. The tests were helpful in getting me familiar with the format of the test (the printed version was all I had to work with - see above). However, there isn't much within the text that actually helped me prepare. In all fairness, I am an avid reader (not poetry!!) and could have simply taken this test at any time. If you are not much of a reader this book might be a good guide on what to read. It does not contain a list of what to read but if you read the material it uses as examples, it may help. Reading this book alone will NOT prepare you for this test.

I passed! The only literature exposure I had was a nine-week course 15 years ago. This book helped me brush up on my literary terms. The two practice exams helped a lot along with explaining the correct answers and why the other choices were incorrect. After I took the practice exams online, I would go back and see what I got wrong and why they were wrong, which is what I think helped me the most in passing the actual Clep exam. I also purchased the 10.00 college board practice exam and that also helped.

Got a perfect score on the CLEP exam! June 3 2013
By L. Purvis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book a week before my scheduled CLEP exam, did the diagnostic test and got a 24, then spent the next few days studying. I read the book, took notes, and took both the sample exams online. I got scaled scores of 61 and 62 on the two sample exams, so I kept my appointment to take the exam as scheduled. I got a scaled score of 80! In fact, one of the poems on the exam version that I took was also part of one of the online exams that REA offered. If you take the diagnostic test, study the areas suggested, and do the practice exams, you should have a good indication of whether you are prepared for the CLEP. Highly recommend!

I'm not one to tell someone to take a test cold, but I read the first chapter that gives any "relevant" study information. This test just isn't something that you can blindly study for, but rather something that you should practice for.

This test is something that you either know or you don't. If you aren't savvy at reading and comprehension (especially for various styles of works from various time periods) then you are going to have a hard time. I got a 59 on the test (50 required to pass) with minimal effort or study for it, but thats just because I have an average reading comprehension as opposed to those out there who get 60s and 70s on this thing. If you get this book, then your best bet is going to be heading strait to the practice tests and looking through the book for definitions of literary terms that you aren't familiar with or haven't seen in a while.

I can't give this product 5 stars just due to the fact that there are other, free resources out there which potentially hold more benefit than this particular book. Find practice tests and read read read. Thats the best way to prepare yourself for this test. By all means, if you need some extra practice tests on hand, this book is great. Don't bother with reading through the chapters though, its a waste of time.

Nice Prep Tool! July 9 2013
By KarateDogg - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is relatively easy to read and seems to cover the basic requirements for the exam. The online diagnostic exams are also a useful tool to help you gauge your progress.

I would also recommend that you combine the use of this book with Speedy Prep's CLEP preparation service at [...]
