How to effectively prepare for a CLEP exam?

Hey everyone, so I’m considering taking a CLEP exam to get some college credits out of the way. Does anyone have tips or resources they’ve found super helpful for preparing? Mostly looking for strategies that can work regardless of the subject. Thanks a bunch!

Glad to see you're taking initiative with the CLEP exams! My child found that focused study using the official CLEP study materials was most effective. Setting up a study schedule and sticking to it is key. Additionally, they benefited from group study sessions, because teaching the material to others helped reinforce their own understanding. It's also helpful to take practice tests under timed conditions. Lastly, checking out online resources and forums where others share their experiences with specific CLEP exams can provide insight into what to expect. There are a multitude of resources available - don't hesitate to use them to your advantage! Best of luck!
