I passed the CLEP Bio Test!!!

  1. I'm still in shock. It was really hard but it's over and I passed. Now I can get added to the waiting list for the nursing program in January. We'll see what happens.

    CONGRATS! What a relief!

    I've been wanting to take some CLEPs, but am afraid I'd shell out all that $$ and not pass.

    Thanks. I had that fear too. Also all the time I gave up. But it turned out cheaper then taking the class (and less time). I wanted to get on the waiting list for Spring and not wait until next September. I don't know if I'll get in but this way I have a shot.

    That's great! I'm studying to clep Human Growth & Dev. One less class to take ( and cheaper).

    Congrats, Lori! :hatparty:

    I'm leaving in 15 minutes to take the Intro Psych CLEP. It's $75 at my institution, and I do worry that cash'll go down the drain if I don't pass.

    Your success has encouraged me!

    Good luck. You'll do fine! Let me know. My test was for a whole year of biology and if I can pass that, you can pass this. Go for it!

    Hello, I also would like to take clep in biology but I need to know a good study guide to buy to take it. Does anyone know? I would appreciate any information.

    thank you

    I used Biology Sixth Edition by Campbell & Reece and a CLEP Biology study guide by Rudman. Also get the list of topics from the CLEP website.

    Hey guys!

    I passed the CLEP for Intro Psych. My score was 70 and I needed a score of 50 to get credit . . . so I am VERY happy!

    I'm registered to take Human Development next semester, and I'm seriously considering dropping it, studying on my own, and CLEPing it instead!

    Lori, that is so wonderful! I have always been too much of a wimp to try and take a clep test. Good for you!

    Hi All,

    A quick question..what "grade" do you receive for passing a CLEP test? I've been considering taking one but I'm curious what GPA value it is given.
