WE KNOW THE CLEP
The experts at The Princeton Review take the CLEP and other standardized tests each year to make sure you get the most up-to-date, thoroughly researched books possible.

WE KNOW STUDENTS
Each year we help more than two million students score high with our courses, best-selling books, and award-winning software.

WE GET RESULTS
Students who take our courses for the SAT, GRE, LSAT, and many other tests see score improvements that have been verified by independent accounting firms.  The proven techniques that we teach in our courses are in this book.

AND IF IT'S ON THE CLEP, IT'S IN THIS BOOK
The Princeton Review realizes that acing the CLEP is very different from getting straight As in school.  We don't try to teach you everything there is to know about every subject--only the techniques that you need to score high on the CLEP.  There's a big difference.  In Cracking the CLEP, we'll teach you how to think like the test-makers and:

*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 the Humanities exam by using clues in the questions
*Crack algebra problems by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters
*Ace the 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 we fully explain every solution.
