  9. 9. CLEP College CompositionNow we have a lot of information to cover in ashort amount of time, so I have to talk reallyfast, but you can always re-watch this video orread the unabridged version on my website at (case sensitive).
  10. 10. WHAT is the CLEP?Accepted at over 2,900 colleges anduniversities and administered by over 1,900testing centers across the USA and aboard theCollege-Level Examination Program, or CLEPTests for short, is an EASY way for studentsto earn college credit-by-exam on any oneof 33 subject-matters.Or other "cool" terms you might hear it referredas are: testing out or CLEPping out.
  11. 11. HOW the CLEP Works?Basically instead of 16-weeks of reading,homework, quizzes, projects, and final exams,with just a few short weeks (and sometimeseven days) of independent study, which Illshow you the FASTEST & EASIEST way tostudy later in this video, you can test out ofcollege classes and earn the SAME amount ofcollege credit WITHOUT ever having to stepfoot in a classroom! In short, if you pass theexam you earn the college credit!
  12. 12. WHO Takes the CLEP?There are many types of students that CLEP, such as:1. High School Students who want to jump start their college degree.2. Home School Students who want to earn dual credit and prove theyre collegeready.3. College Students who want to graduate faster than their peers OR those whojust need a class or two to finish their degree.4. Adult Learners returning to school, managing work and family, who need tocondense time in the classroom & accelerate their degree for careeradvancement.5. Military Service Members, at home or abroad, that need a flexible learningschedule. Plus CLEP for Military is FREE!6. Students with Foreign-Language Skills who want to earn up to 12 collegecredits by passing a competency exam.7. Or any cost & time conscious student that wants to...Graduate FASTER, With LESS Student Debt, & Jump START Their Careers!
  13. 13. WHY Should You Take the CLEP?There are 5 common reasons students CLEP:1. Save Money in College Tuition2. Save Time in the Classroom3. Graduate Faster (or On Time for that matter)4. Make College More Interesting5. Satisfy Proficiency RequirementsIn short: Save Time. Save Money. Take the CLEP.
  14. 14. Now I dont have time to cover all 5 reasons inthis video, but you can see a detailedexplanation at (case sensitive).But I do want to cover the two most importantreasons: Save Time. Save Money. CLEP.
  15. 15. How the CLEP Can Save You TimeThe choice is simple. By earning college creditwithout ever having to step foot in theclassroom, CLEP FREEs your schedule to doother things like...● take more advanced classes or● explore other courses of interest or● accelerate your degree or● finish those embarrassing 1-2 classes* or● more time to focus on your family or work responsibilities while earning your degree● just be able to breeze by college with some extra time in your class schedule!
  16. 16. How the CLEP Can Save You TimeWhatever your reason. The only regretstudents have about CLEP, is they wish theywould have taken MORE! For a few weeks ofindependent study you can SKIP 3-hrs in class+ 10-hrs out of class for 16-weeks of reading,homework, quizzes, projects, and final exams.So you can have more time to "just do you!"Whether you take 1-2 exams or 10-20 exams,CLEP can help you earn your college degree.
  17. 17. How the CLEP Can Save You $$$At the time of this video CLEP Tests are about$77 per exam. So for less than the cost of yourcollege textbook you can test out of many ofyour general & introductory college courses.Let me repeat that because this is huge, forLESS than the cost of your college textbookyou can PAY FOR COLLEGE by TESTINGOUT OF COLLEGE CLASSES!
  18. 18. Save Money in College Tuition Cont.Now for those of you using student loans let meput that in layman terms. The average cost oftuition at a public 4-year university is $5,000/semester or a private university is $10,000/semesters. Well, if you do the math for every$10,000 you save today thats $115 PER Monthfor the NEXT 10-YEARS you dont have torepay in student loan DEBT tomorrow. So bytesting out of 1-2 semesters you can quicklysee how this is a VERY BIG DEAL!!!
  19. 19. Save Time. Save Money. Take theCLEP. OK, at this point in the video were going to wrap-up Part I of How-To Pass The CLEP Exam - Guaranteed. But before I do I just want to pause for a second so you can reflect on what the CLEP means for you, your career, and most importantly your family. Which is the really reason we go to college anyway.
  20. 20. Save Time. Save Money. Take theCLEP. Ive said what Ive had to say, Im not going to sit here and hard sell you, if you have any Q&A ask them below. But you already know... The CLEP can help you graduate FASTER, with LESS student debt, so you can JUMP start your career. So now that weve got that out the way lets talk about How-To Pass the CLEP Exam - GUARANTEED!!!
  21. 21. A Word Before We StartNow before I show you the FASTEST &EASIEST Way to Prepare & Past the CLEPExam, to be completely transparent I want totell you that the "Official" CLEP studyrecommendation can be found on their websiteat
  22. 22. A Word Before We StartSo I just want to make it perfectly clear thatwhat Im about to tell you is the "UNofficial"CLEP Study Guide that will show you how toshortcut all the fluff and ONLY focus on the keypoints needed to pass the CLEP Exam.
  23. 23. A Word Before We StartBecause YOUR goal is to test out of theserequired general & introductory courses asFAST & EASY as possible, so you can get tothe classes that are REALLY important for yourdegree and career.While saving a whole bunch of time and moneyat the same time!
  24. 24. A Word My Critics!And let me just say something to my critics right now. Irespect the whole liberal arts educational model and thinkthese classes are important to any "well-rounded" collegegraduate. BUT I just dont believe I should have to do 16-weeks worth of "busy work" and spend hundreds andthousands of dollars in college tuition to prove what Ialready know (or at least can study for in a few shortweeks). And I believe that the independent study modeloffers just as much value to a persons education as thetraditional brick-and-mortar classroom. Because...
  25. 25. A Word My Critics!1. It teaches you how to be an independent learner which is important to any college graduate.2. Testing out of general & introductory classes frees your schedule to explore other courses of interest or more advanced courses in your degree.3. It allows students to graduate FASTER (or on time) so you can jump start your career and begin your REAL World learning.4. And last but certainly not least, it allows students to SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in College Tuition & Student Loan Debt! (Heck, with the money saved you can buy a library if youre that motivated to learn!)
  26. 26. A Word My Critics!Now if Im preaching to the choir I apologize Ihad to waste your time with that rant. But thereare a lot of THEYS that criticize ME forspreading a message that can really help a lotof college students for the reasons I just listed.So I just want to set the record: I believeeducation is important, but I do NOT believe ina one-size-fits-all educational system.So With That Being Said, Lets Get Started!!!
  27. 27. About the CLEP CollegeComposition Tests?Most students say the College CompositionCLEP Test is a pretty "basic" English Exam topass, even for those who hated high schoolEnglish. Although many past test takers admit,that this is one CLEP youll be racing againstthe clock to finish. But with the Best CollegeComposition CLEP Study Guides and the BestCollege Composition CLEP Practice Tests, injust a few short weeks of studying youll be ableto test out of class.
  28. 28. About the CLEP CollegeComposition Tests?Now this is one exam everybody should takebecause after all, youve learned standardwritten English from kindergarten - 12th grade.So why should you have to spend another 16-weeks and $1,000+ in college tuition andbooks, for something you already know?! Ithought so too. So by testing out of a collegecourses you already know or at least dont minda few short weeks of independent study. Its asmall price to pay for saving hundreds & eventhousands of dollars in college tuition!
  29. 29. Important Note About this ExamOn July 1, 2010, CLEP introduced two newexams- College Composition and CollegeComposition Modular. These exams replacedthree current exams, which were discontinuedeffective immediately:● English Composition with Essay has been replaced by College Composition● English Composition without Essay has been replaced by College Composition Modular.● Freshman College Composition has been replaced by College Composition Modular.
  30. 30. College Composition vsCollege Composition ModularCollege Composition contains 50 multiple-choice questions to be answered in 50 minutesand two mandatory, centrally scored essays tobe written in 70 minutes, for a total of 120minutes testing time. Each of the two essaysare scored independently by two differentreaders, for a total of four different essayscores. The multiple-choice and essay scoresare then combined to yield a SINGLE scaledscore between 20 and 80*. Most collegesaward 6 credits* for a passing score of 50.
  31. 31. College Composition vsCollege Composition ModularCollege Composition Modular contains 90multiple-choice questions to be answered in 90minutes and two OPTIONAL essays that iseither provided and scored by your college orprovided and scored by the College Board tobe written in 70 minutes. The multiple-choiceand essay scores are then combined to yield aSINGLE scaled score between 20 and 80*.Most colleges award 6 credits* for a passingscore of 50 with the essay OR 3 credits for apassing score of 50 withOUT the essay.
  32. 32. College Composition vsCollege Composition ModularNow, for those of you deciding between thetwo, its important to know the exams aresimilar in the knowledge and skills assessedand identical in percentages of exam topicquestions. But the obvious difference, is thatsince the College Composition Modular CLEPis 90 questions in 90 minutes verses theCollege Composition CLEP is 50 questions in50 minutes, the extended time means theCollege Composition Modular CLEP will haveprogressively more difficult multiple-choice
  33. 33. College Composition vsCollege Composition ModularIn addition, the College Composition RequiredEssay is centrally scored by CLEP faculty vsthe College Composition Modular OptionalEssay is usually locally scored by your college.Of course which CLEP Exam you take isdependent on your colleges CLEP policy, but ifgiven the option between the two I wouldrecommend the CLEP College CompositionTests. Because 1) the questions arent asdifficult as the later and 2) the test is centrallyscored so you know what rubric you are scored
  34. 34. What Topics are Covered on theCollege Composition (Modular*)The College Composition CLEP Exam coversmaterial that is normally taught in the first yearof a College English Undergraduate Course.I usually tell people that CLEP Exams aredesigned to be self-study and even someonewith NO or limited prior knowledge orbackground can pass the exam in just a fewshort weeks (and sometimes even days) ofstudying. Which I’ll show you later in this video.
  35. 35. What Topics are Covered on theCollege Composition (Modular*)For the College Composition Test you will haveapproximately 1 minute per multiple-choicequestion in 4 English sub-topics including: 1)Conventions of Standard Written English, 2)Revision Skills, Including Sentence-Level Skills,3) Ability to Use Source Materials, And 4)Rhetorical Analysis.
  36. 36. The Key to this CLEPThe key to this CLEP is to watch your time!Remember, youre graded on the number ofquestions correct, with NO penalty for incorrectanswers. So if you find yourself stuck on onequestions, then pick your gut answer, mark it,skip it, and move on! You can mark thequestion and come back later if you have time.But the strategy for this exam is to get throughall the questions in the allotted time, becauseyou will be racing against the clock.
  37. 37. The Key to this CLEP (cont.)I also advise you take plenty of CLEPComposition Practice Tests to become familiarwith the format and time constrains. This testsis all about grammar and sentence structureapplication. So simply memorizing the definitionof a subject-verb agreement is NOT enough,instead youll have to know how and when tocorrect a sentence given to you.
  38. 38. The Key to this CLEP (cont.)So if you hated English in high school or it’sbeen a few decades since you’ve last seen aEnglish textbook :), it’s very important that youspend several hours brushing up on yourEnglish grammar skills. Remember, not justtextbook theory but actual application.
  39. 39. Testing Out is Easier than You ThinkI know all this information may seemoverwhelming at first, and you may think that it’s just easier to take the course at your collegeinstead. But trust me, just use the CLEPCollege Composition Study Guides andCLEP College Composition Practice Testswe discuss next in this video and testingout of a college class will be easier than youthink. Not to mention a great way to help youpay for college and earn your degree faster!
  40. 40. How do I Study for the CLEP CollegeComposition Test?To study for this exam, the College Board (themakers of the tests) recommends you readseveral 800+ page College Compositiontextbooks. Now that is a daunting task even forthe most studious over-achiever! No wonder somany students believe the MYTH that testingout of a college course is actually harder thanjust taking the damn class!

  68. 68. FREE College Composition CLEPPractice TestsAgain, Ive compiled the BEST FREE CollegeComposition CLEP Practice Tests at (case sensitive).
  69. 69. What is a passing CollegeComposition CLEP Test Score?After completing the 50/90-minute, 50/90multiple-choice question CLEP CollegeComposition Tests, you will receive a scaledscore ranging between 20 – 80. Each collegeand university has its’ own CLEP Policy forawarding college credit-by-exam, but the ACE(American Council on Education)recommended Passing College CompositionCLEP Score is 50.
  70. 70. What is a passing CollegeComposition CLEP Test Score?IMPORTANT: If your Composition CLEPincludes an essay portion the multiple-choiceand essay are averaged together to give you afinal CLEP Score. Since the scores are NOTreported separately you will have to wait untilyour essay is reviewed for a final CLEP Score.Plan on about 6-8 weeks to receive a finalscore.
  71. 71. What is a passing CollegeComposition CLEP Test Score?What I always tell people is that it’s important toknow that CLEP Tests are scored on a curve,with a passing score being the same number ofquestions correct a C-Average Student wouldreceive on a comparable College CompositionFinal Exam.While the College Board (which does thescoring) does not release this number,seasoned CLEP Test Takers usually aim for araw score of 60-70% correctly answered
  72. 72. What is a passing CollegeComposition CLEP Test Score?Depending on the difficulty of the exam, this isusually well above the curve you need toachieve a passing score.I also remind new CLEP Test Takers that youdo NOT lose points for incorrect answers, soyou should ALWAYS try to answer ALL thequestions on the exam, even if you’re unsure ofthe correct answer. This works best if you cannarrow down your choices to two or threepossible answers. That way you have a 50-50chance of guessing correctly!
  73. 73. What is a passing CollegeComposition CLEP Test Score? *******************************And remember, each question is worth theSAME amount of points as the next one,regardless of how easy or difficult thequestion. The name of the game is toanswer as many easy and intermediatequestions as fast as possible. If you comeacross a question that is too hard to solvewithin a minute or two, mark it, skip it, andmove on! *******************************
  74. 74.
