¡Hola! It's normal to feel a bit nervous before taking an exam like the Spanish CLEP, but with the right approach, you can definitely ace it! First, I recommend you get familiar with the exam structure and types of questions you'll be facing. The College Board offers a CLEP Official Study Guide that you can use as a starting point. In terms of study habits, consistency is key. Try to set aside some time every day for your Spanish studies to build and maintain your language skills.

Flashcards can be particularly useful for vocabulary building, and there are many apps or websites that can help you with that. Engaging with the language outside of study materials can also be highly beneficial, so consider watching Spanish films or series, listening to Spanish music, or even finding conversation partners to practice speaking. The key is to immerse yourself in the language in a variety of contexts. Finally, try to complete practice exams under timed conditions to simulate the test-day experience. Wishing you the best of luck — you got this!
