  2. 2. The Good Ol DaysWhich is how it used to be in the good ol daysanyway.

  3. 3. College is ImportantLook, we all know a college education isimportant for a better career and lifestyle.And for many of us without a rich uncle orparents "nice" enough to foot our college bill,student loans are the only way we would haveaccess to a better opportunity. Thats how itwas for me and if youre watching this video Imsure it probably is for you too.
  4. 4.

  5. 5. If That Doesnt Make You M-A-D!Then I dont know what will. The system isobviously FIXED to favor Wall Street versesMain Street.

Imjust here to say, STOP THE INSANITY!And thats why Im here to share with you a littleknown secret that I discovered that allowed meto...

  9. 9. CLEP BiologyNow 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 athttp://bit.ly/clepbiology (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. Save Time. Save Money. CLEP!Now I dont have time to cover all 5 reasons inthis video, but you can see a detailedexplanation at http://bit.ly/clepsecrets (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 http://CLEP.CollegeBoard.com
  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 to 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 to 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 to 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 Biology Exam?Most students say the Biology CLEP Tests is a“challenging” exam to study for, but it is verydoable. Although many past test takers admit,you’ll feel like the more you study the more youneed to study and even after all that studyingyou still have to guess on a good portion of thetests! But with the Best Biology CLEP StudyGuides and the Best Biology CLEP PracticeTests, with just a few weeks of studying you’llbe able to test out of a full-year of scienceclasses.
  28. 28. About the CLEP Biology Exam?Many students also credit the CLEP Testsas one of the Bests Ways to Pay for CollegeTuition. Given that the cost of the CLEP Test isless than the cost of your college biologytextbook for the class and that you spend afraction of the time studying than you would in atraditional 16-week biology classroom. It’s a“scientific” fact , that CLEPping out of collegeclasses will save you both money in collegetuition and time in the classroom.
  29. 29. What Topics are Covered on theCLEP Biology Tests?The Biology CLEP Exam covers a wide range oftopics that are normally taught in a one-yearcollege Biology Course. IMPORTANT: Sincethis is a science course, you’ll also want tocheck with your college to determine if you needto take a science lab section in addition to theCLEP.
  30. 30. What Topics are Covered on theCLEP Biology Tests?I usually tell people that CLEP Exams aredesigned to be self-study and even someonewith NO prior knowledge or background canpass the exam in just a few short weeks (andsometimes even days) of studying. Which I’llshow you how in the next section.
  31. 31. What Topics are Covered on theCLEP Biology Tests?But this is one CLEP I’m going to have to makean exception. Because it is not for the faintof heart and I definitely wouldn’t advise it ifyou haven’t had any prior exposure tobiology. Even if you only took a high schoolbiology class many moons ago. If you canremember Mrs. Lee’s lesson on Glycolysis,Krebs Cycle, Electron Transport System, ATP,and ADP, then at least you’re on the right track.
  32. 32. What Topics are Covered on theCLEP Biology Tests?Now, I don’t want to scare you away. But bewarned this exam will require more studyingthan any other CLEP Exam you’ve preparedfor. Because...
  33. 33. What Topics are Covered on theCLEP Biology Tests?1. You’re testing out of two-semesters of college classes (other CLEPs usually only test one-semester),2. It’s a science course which demands understanding and NOT just memorization,3. It’s biology. Biology is the study of life and living organisms. That basically means the study everything! So biology goes both wide and deep at the same time, a challenging endeavor even for the biology enthusiasts.
  34. 34. What Topics are Covered on theCLEP Biology Tests?But luckily even the College Board wouldn’t bethat brutal. For the CLEP Biology Test you willhave 90 minutes to answer 115 multiple-choicecovering 3 biology sub-topics including: 1)Molecular and Cellular Biology, 2) OrganismsBiology, and 3) Population Biology.
  35. 35. Biology CLEP Test "Secrets"The key to this exam is Process ofElimination (POE). Again, there is A LOT ofinformation on the test and you are NOT goingto know it all! But if you can master the basics,you can make an educated guess on thequestions that go really deep.
  36. 36. Biology CLEP Test "Secrets"This technique works best if you can narrowyour choices down to two or three possibleanswers, so that way you have a 50-50 chanceof guessing correctly. It’s NOT uncommon tohave to guess on half of the questions, andthis technique will really help you correctlyanswer CLEP Questions by process ofelimination.
  37. 37. Biology CLEP Test "Secrets"Also, Time Management is crucial.Answering delays can prove very costly. Workquickly and don’t linger on any one question toolong. Remember, each question is worth thesame amount of points, regardless of how easyor hard the question.
  38. 38. Biology CLEP Test "Secrets"The name of the game is to quickly workthrough the easy questions first and mark themore difficult questions to return to at the endof the exam. With that being said, don’t besurprised if you’re pushed to the full 90-minutetime-limit. While this CLEP is challenging, itis a very doable tests. Just clear your headand focus on the exam.
  39. 39. Testing Out is Easier than You ThinkI know all this information may seemoverwhelming at first and you may think that it’sjust easier to take the course at your collegeinstead. But trust me, just use the BiologyCLEP Study Guides and Biology CLEPPractice Tests below and testing out of acollege class will be easier than you think.Not to mention a great way to help you pay forcollege and earn your degree faster!
  40. 40. How do I Study for the CLEP BiologyTest?To study for the CLEP Exam, the CollegeBoard (the makers of the tests) recommendsyou read several 800+ page college Biologytextbooks. Now that is a daunting task even forthe most studious over-achiever! No wonderso many students believe the MYTH thattesting out of a college course is actually harderthan just taking the damn class.

It isthe only CLEP Practice Tests created by theactual tests makers for all 33 CLEP Tests.Note: Only one practice tests included perexam and no explanation to answers areprovided.
  60. 60. How do I Practice for the CLEPBiology Test?Anyway, whatever option you go with, it willcost you less than $20. Now while no CLEPPractice Tests (not even the Official CLEPPractice Tests) will be an exact version of theactual CLEP you test on “D-Day,” they do helpto familiarize you with the format and type ofCLEP Exam Biology Questions to expect. I liketo use practice tests as indicators of myreadiness for the actual Biology CLEP Tests,so I’m more confident on exam day.

  66. 66. FREE Biology CLEP Practice TestsRemember, the makers of the CLEP tests basethe exam on what you would normally learn in aBiology course.

  67. 67. FREE Biology CLEP Practice TestsWith that being said, I will give you a word ofcaution when using companion websites. Thequestions will be different than the type ofquestions you encounter on the CLEP. Andmany of you will say, “It’s a waste of time.” ButI’ve found that nothing beats confidenceduring a tests. Because the companionwebsite quizzes require you to use criticalthinking to answer and then go research anyincorrect answers, it forces you to actuallystart to UNDERSTAND the topic.
  68. 68. FREE Biology CLEP Practice TestsAnd the secret to passing any CLEP Tests is toUNDERSTAND the topic, not just memorize abunch of facts. Because when you trulyunderstand a topic you can answer anyquestion you encounter on the actual CLEPExam.

  70. 70. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest Score?After completing the 90-minute, 115 Multiple-Choice Question CLEP Biology Tests, you willreceive a scaled score ranging between 20 –80. Each college and university has its’ owncredit-by-exam policy for awarding collegecredit, but the ACE (American Council onEducation) recommended Passing BiologyCLEP Score is 50.
  71. 71. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest 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 Biology Final 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 answeredquestions*.
  72. 72. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest 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 Biology CLEPTest 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, then guess on it,mark it, skip it, and move on! *******************************
  74. 74. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest Score?You don’t want to struggle and toil over everyhard question at the expense of not havingenough time to answer the easier questions.You can always go back to the ones youskipped at the end of the exam, if you havetime leftover. Go for the “low hanging fruit” first!
  75. 75. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest Score?A couple of other CLEP Tips & Tricks. 1)Manage your time wisely. Depending on yourcomfort level, some tests you can whiz by andothers will come down to the last second. If youknow that to be the case, then you always wantto select an answer before you skip a question,just in case you don’t have time to return at theend of the exam. Remember, you do NOT losepoints for incorrect answers. So it’s better tohave something than nothing.
  76. 76. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest Score?2) Also, be on the lookout for questions thatanswer other questions. Every now and thenyou’ll run across a question that can help youanswer another question. The CLEP ismultiple-choice for Pete’s sake, so the answeris right in front of you! If you don’t know theanswer then use this technique and process ofelimination to help you determine the correctanswer.
  77. 77. What is a Passing Biology CLEPTest Score?3) And remember, you don’t have toget a 100% on the Biology CLEPTests to score well. It’s a curvedtests, which means you just have todo better than the next person toscore well!!!And trust me, the curve is usuallyvery-very GENEROUS :)
  78. 78. How do I Pass the Biology CLEPTests?OK, we’ve covered a lot of information.Depending on your prior comfort-level, theCLEP Biology Test is an intermediate exam tostudy for and most students will need about 2-4weeks of reasonable study time to prepare(about 10-15 hours/week). If you have no orlimited biology background plan on about 6-8+weeks of reasonable study time. Yes, its aserious exam, but its also a LOT easier thantaking it at your college!
