How to effectively study for Spanish CLEP exam?

I'm looking at my options and thinking about taking the Spanish CLEP exam to fulfill my language requirement. However, my Spanish is a bit rusty and I want to nail this test. Does anybody have tips or free practice resources they used to prepare? What would be the best way to revise for someone who's not a complete beginner but definitely not fluent?

Hey there! I totally get where you're coming from. My kid was in a similar situation with French, so I might have some helpful tips. For a start, using language apps can be really beneficial — they're often gamified, which makes learning a bit more fun and consistent. Apps like Duolingo are free and can be great for brushing up on your vocabulary and grammar. Another tip is to immerse yourself as much as possible in the language. Try changing your phone or social media to Spanish, and watch shows or listen to podcasts in Spanish too; the more you surround yourself with the language, the better. As for practice resources, check out the Modern States website. They offer free online CLEP courses. Finally, don't underestimate the power of flashcards for memory retention, you can create them for vocab, key phrases, and grammatical rules. My child also paired up with a friend for study sessions, which can help with accountability and motivation. ¡Buena suerte con tu examen!
