If the lack of time and money is hampering your college education, taking the CLEP exam could help make the road to higher education a little easier.
CLEP stands for College Level Examination Program. It consist of 34 exams that one can take for credit towards a college credit. The exams are mostly multiple choice but it can be fill in the blanks as well.
The examinations are given via computer and cost around $ 77 per test.
Take the CLEP if:
* You want to finish college in under three years, saving time and money.
* You have prior knowledge which can be used towards college credit
* You want to get a feel for how difficult a degree is by doing a few courses.
Do not confuse the College Level Examination Program tests with the so called life experience degree. There are many life experience degrees being sold on the net and in magazines. One can buy bachelors, masters or even PhD life experience degrees which the sellers want you to believe are acceptable.
Truth is these degrees are as worthless as the paper which they are printed on. They are not accredited, will not be accepted by any reputable college or employer. As a matter of fact, if you buy one of these fraudulent degrees, you'll be doing more to damage your reputation than anything else you could ever do.
The CLEP on the other hand gives you a bonafide credit for existing knowledge. All you have to do is pass an exam or exams.
If you are in the military or a spouse of someone in the military, you can even get to do the exams for free. Check with your military base to find out more details.
It is important that do not be overconfident and ideally prepare for the tests. In this regards we recommend the appropriate test guides.
