Which CLEP exams could benefit a potential Business major the most?

Hi everyone, junior here thinking about majoring in Business. I've been looking into taking some CLEP exams and was wondering, which ones would be most beneficial for someone interested in a Business degree? I'm trying to map out my studies to make the most of this opportunity.

Hey there! It's great to see you're being proactive about your education. CLEP exams can definitely give you a head start. For a potential Business major, consider taking exams like 'Principles of Management', 'Principles of Marketing', and 'Financial Accounting'. These can help you grasp foundational concepts that will be useful in your business studies.

Additionally, 'Introductory Business Law' and 'Information Systems' could also be relevant, depending on your more specific areas of interest within the business field. Remember, each college has different policies for CLEP credit, so before you get too far into planning, check with the institutions you're interested in to ensure they accept these credits and that the exams align with their course requirements. Otherwise, it may not be worth your time to study and sit for the exam if you're still going to have to take the intro-level course when you get to college.

Best of luck in your studies!
