I took the bio CLEP test a few years ago. It wasn't bad. I used the free videos on Hippocampus.org: HippoCampus Biology - Homework and Study Help - Free help with your Biology homework
I also referred to this study guide: http://www.amazon.com/CLEP-Biology-REA-CD-ROM-TESTware/dp/0738600490/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1341174416&sr=8-2&keywords=clep+biology
A newer edition is available. Really, though, any basic biology text--in my opinion, the shorter the better--can help prepare you for the exam. Other free science videos and lectures abound on the Internet as well. Youtube is great. I would go with whatever format/source resonates with you.

Thanks so much! I'll have to look into those sources. I'm taking it July 11th so I don't have much time to cram!

I passed! It wasn't easy, seemed like there was a huge focus on chemistry which isn't my strongest area.... But I got through it and can move on with my life! :-D
Congratulations! That's wonderful! Best wishes in your future endeavors!
