I completely understand the stress that comes with preparing for an exam like the Psychology CLEP! The best piece of advice I can give is to start by reviewing the official CLEP study guide for Psychology. It will provide you with the exam structure and key topics you need to cover.

From there, create a study schedule that breaks down the material into manageable sections, allowing for regular review sessions to reinforce what you've learned. Online resources can be incredibly helpful as well—there are various free and paid study resources specifically designed for CLEP exams.

Additionally, make practice tests your best friend, as they help you become familiar with the format of the questions and identify any areas you need to focus on more. Remember to spread your study sessions out over time rather than cramming, as consistent, diligent studying allows for better retention. That approach will also give you time to come up with your own mnemonic devices to memorize key terms and concepts.

Finally, be patient with yourself—you won't know everything right away, but with regular studying, you'll improve in leaps and bounds. Best of luck on your exam!
