The Princeton Review knows that acing the CLEP is very different from getting straight A's in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach you everything there is to know about every subject -- only the techniques that you need to score higher on the CLEP. There's a big difference. In Cracking the CLEP, The Princeton Review will teach you how to think like the test makers.

This is accomplished by teaching you how to:
Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
Avoid the tricky Restructuring Sentences and Analyzing Writing questions on the English exam
Tackle he Humanities exam by using clues in the questions
Crack the algebra problems by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters
Ace thew Social and Natural Science exams by tailoring your review to the tests

*This book includes five full-length diagnostic exams that will predict your score on the CLEP. The questions in these tests are exactly like the ones you'll find on the real CLEP, and every solution is fully explained.
