English Composition/College Writing

  1. I was wondering if anyone has taken the CLEP College Writing with essay or the English Composition Exam with Excelsior? I am looking to do one of those and I was wondering if it was extremely difficult or if I should just take the class at the college. I haven't taken English classes since highschool...6 years ago. I did do really well on my placement test for the college in English. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I hadn't taken English in over 20 years and was able to pass the CLEP. Get a study guide and take the practice tests. Then you'll have a fairly good idea of whether you can pass it.

    Did you take the CLEP with essay? There are 3 different kinds...the one that I would need is English Composition with Essay.

    Hi,
    I've done both as well as Analyzing/interpreting literature which was tough for me. Neither of the others were hard and I was about 17 years out of high school when I took them. Like the other poster said, get the review book and see how you score. Good luck, I love CLEPs!!!
