Book Description

The latest edition of our popular study guide to prepare for the CLEP Humanities Examination. This book has asubject matter review and a sample test. It is devoted specifically to the humanites test. It does not simply bundle all the CLEP test together. Give a little math review, a little English review and then have one sample test for each topic. This book is for humanities and only humanities.

Comex Systems, Inc. has been preparing people for the CLEP tests for over 30 years. The success rate using our study guides has been outstanding. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good starting point...
This book is good for those who have little background knowledge of humanities and need a starting point. I gave this book only three stars because I feel it doesn't actually teach information one needs to know for the CLEP, but focuses more on test taking skills. Even though some material covered in the book did appear on the CLEP test, I recommed using multiple references i.e. textbooks & other study guides. I passed the CLEP with a 67, but most information I found in the book did not help me too much when taking the test.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide
I was initially intimidated by the CLEP exams and didn't know which study guide to use. On a whim, I picked this up. I found the information easy to reference and very thorough. During my preperation for the test, I found other study guides and noticed that majority of those instructed you on how to take the test without providing a lot of detail. To say the least, I passed with a 580. I'm getting ready for the Social Science exam and have been using the same author's guide. I suggest this guide to any one planning or in the processing of studying for the test - GOOD LUCK!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide!
While this guide does not teach you absolutely everything you need to know to pass the exam, it teaches most of it. It gives you excellent test taking skills, which is necessary if you haven't taken a computerized CLEP exam before. (I hadn't.) Next, it gives you a good grounding on all areas covered by the exam. About half of the questions in the book were on the exam I took. Another third of the questions taught me how to answer similar questions on the actual exam. I got full point: 80 out of 80 on the exam I took using only this guide, the 10 sample questions I got from College Board for $10, and a little bit of prior knowledge. You can easily pass (50%) with this guide. GOOD LUCK to you!

3-0 out of 5 stars You'll need more
I had hoped that studying this book would give me insights and a basis to answer a good percentage of the questions on the exam. Yet, less than ten percent of the questions on my test were over material covered by this book. Fortunately. I had a broad background and am an excellent test taker and I passed the test, gaining six credits. However, more than half the questions dealt with art and authors I'd never heard of. Over all, I THINK this book helped a little, but not as much as I would have liked. (DON'T COUNT ON THIS BOOK TO GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PASS THE EXAM.)

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the better CLEP books
I've taken 6 CLEP tests and have used many study guides. I found this one to be the most comprehensive of all subjects. It's a great reference. ... Read more

Book Description

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.

Contents include:

5-0 out of 5 stars the clep in itself
I bought this book on a whim....when it came down to test taking time, I read over the chapters I needed and any problems I couldn't understand, there was a simple and easy to read understanding of how to solve the problem. After taking the College Mathematics Clep, I would encourage anyone to take it and also buy this book. It was just as if I was going over the book again when I took the test.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Cracked it!
This book provided a real view of the content on the College Math CLEP test. I took the CLEP this weekend and passed, thanks to "Cracking the CLEP." I was amazed at how true and honest the book was as far as what information I needed to know and review. Many sections were covered in detail, while others the author explained that I simply need to know the basic premise. After completing the test, and looking back at the book, many of the questions were even phrased similarly.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in challenging credits. The cost of the book and the CLEP test far out weigh the cost of taking two long, long math classes!

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than peterson's or instacert.com for College Mathemat
Okay, I just took the clep and passed with a 66. I have peterson's 2005, and I've tried instacert.com. Both were more difficult than the clep. Cracking the clep was perfect for taking the actual clep (college mathematics) They show you how to plug in variables because it's a multiple choice test. They don't really go over binary, but I believe there was only one binary question on the test. Incredible, no more math for me! I love you Cracking the Clep!

5-0 out of 5 stars Forget the Official Guide - this is the one
The questions in this book are actually much harder than the ones in the official CLEP review book, and it tells you WHY the wrong answer is incorrect. On test day I was amazed how easy the correct (or incorrect) answers were to spot due to the invaluable tips from this book (there are no tips in the official book). I took the English Comp with Essay. The first part was a breeze. One part 2, the essay itself, I totally blanked on the statement I was asked to write about, timed out, and far and away wrote the worst essay of my life...and still passed with a 59!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous CLEP Guide!
This book is the best one I have found for an overall review. It made studying easy and fun too! The first few chapters contain very valuable test taking tips. I took the English Comp and passed with a 69 (about an A). I know I got many more questions correct because of this book! I highly recommend it. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good overall, but lacking in areas.
This book is an excellent study source for the CLEP Geeneral Math test, but it only seemed to cover about 85% of the test. The actual test was not very difficult, provided you know the rules of radicals, exponents, logic, complex numbers, logs and sets in exact detail, and this book does a good job of laying all those out. You will, however, probably need some more advanced practice problems since the book only gives a few for each subject. (Try www.purplemath.com to fill in the blanks.) Also, you will need to know histograms which this text doesn't cover at all. I would have given a four star rating, but there were several obvious mistakes in the book's practice problems. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good- Almost 5 stars, but not quite
This book was really helpful to me in my quest to pass the College Algebra CLEP. The problems on the CLEP were very similar to the problems in the three practice tests in the end of the book. There are a few typos, especially in the third test. You wonder how in the world they got there, then realize that it was a typo.

In some parts, I had a tough time grasping the concepts, and the book didn't explain things the best. For those things I used this free and excellent resource:

http://www.wtamu.edu/academic/anns/mps/math/mathlab/col_algebra/index.htm

Courtesy of West Texas A&M University.

This book is definitely worth the price, especially for the three practice tests it contains.

Using these two resources, I achieved a 71 on the College Algebra CLEP.

5-0 out of 5 stars It was helpful!
I took a clpe test yesterday. It was pretty easy. This book really helped me a lot. I also bought other books for college algebra but they were actually more difficult than actual test.
If you buy this book and hit the book, you will definitely pass the clep. Good luck!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great.
Although this book is good to use to brush up on your Algebra skills, it doesn't really help all that much with the actual College Algebra CLEP Test. The book was good at covering the gambit of College Algebra, but lacks in helping to explain the more complex quadratic systems, and graphing problems. It was also weak in helping to explain quadratic sytems using fractions. I still recommend this book over all others that I've seen, but take my advice and get a good College Algebra book to help study the areas of complex systems of equations.

5-0 out of 5 stars CLEP Success!
I have bought and studied numerous CLEP guides, and this one has been the best! I was a bit rusty, being out of school for four years, but the guide had 3 practice exams, detailed solutions at the end of each section, and an overview of all the topics that helped me get a perfect score! I don't recommend any of Jack Rudman's CLEP guides however...they go into too much detail instead of effectively teaching what is actually going to be on the test.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Test Preperation for the CLEP College Algebra Test
This is the best book. It helped me to get a perfect score on the CLEP. Without it I never could have down it. I knew nothing and this book taught me everything. Trust me you have got to get it if you are taking the CLEP. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Study this book to pass
After reading the reviews of this book I felt pretty confident. I only studied this clep book and didn't have much of a good understanding of this subject before hand. The way I studied was to read over the book once. Then I took a practice test and I think I got a 45. Definately read the explanations for the practice tests. Then I reread over it again and tried to remember parts that I seemed to miss on the practice test. Then I took another practice test. I scored like a 55 on that test. When I took the actual clep exam I got a 66 (50 is passing). A lot of questions are almost the exact same as the questions in these practice tests so definately read over those. This book is great. I didn't study anything else and probably overall only spent about 10 hours studying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Review for the CLEP History Exam
This is the only book you will need to pass the CLEP American History to 1877 exam. In addition to reading the narrative, make sure you review all the answers to the CLEP test sample questions...the test answers contain supplemental information you will need for the test. Outstanding book, read the text, and review all of the sample questions and you will blow away the CLEP.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book was enough..........
Well I concur with another reviewer here, book was enough of a base for me to pass the CLEP test. However, many questions on the actual test referred to periods, antebellum, that were not listed in this book. It was extremely helpful to read the detailed answers in the back after missing a question or just for more in depth knowledge of the subject. Also their were a lot of questions on women's rights and activists that were just skimmed over in the book. If you just want to pass the test, this book would probably be enough as long as you study it well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Information but.....
I used only this book to prepare for the test which I took May of 2004. I read it through once and took all three practice tests multiple times until I got around 80%. Be sure to read all the explanations to the questions there is additional info there that doesn't appear to be covered in the chapters. I felt I was prepared when I started the test but the actually questions were so different to what I had studied that I was certain I had failed. Thankfully I got a 64 so although the questions were different the information provided in the book was enough of a base to get through the test.

5-0 out of 5 stars The only book you need to pass
This was the only book I used to prep for this exam and I took the exam today and passed with a score of 52 (50 is the minimum passing score). I studied on and off for a week and a half, took all 3 practice tests in the book and memorized around half of the questions. The last class I had in History was over 10 years ago in high school (and I hated it). This book is definately worth the money. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not even close!
I used this book solely as a review for the CLEP exam, and received a score of 55 (barely passing) as opposed to the actual CLEP books - I got a 96 using the "official CLEP guide".

This book barely has any of the actual test material included in it, and the test had many, many things not even remotely touched upon in the book. I definitely will NOT use this brand again.

3-0 out of 5 stars This book is good but not enough.
This book will help prepare for the exam but it is not enough to pass the test. I was able to pass because I also took the History I, Intro to Sociology, American Government, and General Humanities CLEPS.
Even after I finished the exam, I was not sure if I passed. It is a tough test and this book alone will not be enough to pass.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Material.
This review is for those of us that had/have little or no background in the subject area, but need to pass the clep.

This book is an excellent start. It covers a wide array of material and the sample tests are appropriate to the type
of material on the real Clep. However, If you do not already
have a background in the subject area, this book is not enough.

In order to pass the clep, you should use four books.

1. This book
2. Cracking the Clep
3. The Best Test Preparation for the Clep (R.E.A.)
4. The Best Review for the Clep (R.E.A.)

All of these books together cover enough material and expose you to enough various concepts, that you should be more than prepared to pass the Clep.

While none of the Clep books contained any actual test questions, the concepts covered in the materials definately were on the test. This book was an enormous help.

ps. I passed the the test in the 98th percentile with an hour
and 18 minutes still left on the clock.

4-0 out of 5 stars Barely Passed
I've taken the Marketing and Management CLEP Exams, and they were much easier than this. I don't know if I can blame it on the book, but many of the questions on the exam were not covered. I, however, do think it would be worth your time to buy the book, read it over a couple times, and take the test. I needed a 51 and got 53.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Book for Clep Test
I bought the book 3 months ago, took the test this month and got 60, passed the test. That was the 3rd time I took the test.

Before the 1st time I took the test, I only had "Clep Test-Intruduction to Business Law"-a pink color book from Clep center with sample questions only,no any explanation. I got 48.

Before the 2nd time I took the test, I read about 2 text books and wasted too much time, only got 43.

Before the 3rd time I took the test, I read this book and that pink color book thoroughly, I got 60.

I want to thank Mr. Thomas Orr. This is a very helpful book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Minimal CLEP Help
I failed the CLEP using this book. There was way too much information missing. Topics on Employment Law and Environmental Law were not even covered. I studied from Barron's Business Law before taking the test again, and passed. Barron's provides very useful examples and YOU SHOULD REMEMBER boxes that are very applicable to the test. You need to study more for this CLEP then the others. This was the hardest CLEP I have taken. Good Luck

4-0 out of 5 stars I really like this book
No, the book is not perfect. Comex's review for Principles of Management it outstanding, giving all the information needed. This book is only half that wonderful. Like everyone else said, it only covers half of the information.
I passed the Principles of Management with a 72. I read this book 1 1/2 times, and sort of skimmed the Barron's Review and got a 56 on the Business Law. Same amount of prep time, but a much lower grade. This CLEP really is harder, I think because the study guides are not as good.
My advice depends on how much of a risk you want to take. I think I would have still got a 56 without the Barron's Review. If you want to pass the first time and be thoroughly prepared, read this book first then carefully read the Barron's Review.
If you do not want to over study and do not mind the minimal grade, try just using this book. It would certainly be faster. If you do that really know everything this book covers, and be prepared to have to take it again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless Book
This book was absolutely worthless! As a conservative estimate, this book may have covered one-fifth of the test questions! I have taken two other CLEP exams and passed them with 17 and 19 points higher than required (using only one book). I failed this exam by five points. You will definitely need additional study material if you purchase this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Buy this book with some reservations
I studied for the CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Lit test using this study guide exclusively. I passed with flying colors. But I am not sure I learned anything "New" with this book. Like the customer-reviewer before I found many of the answers from the practice tests debateable. Nonetheless I was able to focus on my particular weaknesses, namely to read the passages from the test more closely, to slow down while reading. So I would suggest to do alternate reading for terms and definitions relating to the test, but use this book for the practice tests, WHICH ARE VERY HELPFUL because really the CLEP test is all about reading, analyzing, and interpreting a la minute. And the only way you are going to get any better at that is to practice practice practice.

I had just decided to finish my degree and was dreading taking 2 literature classes that I needed so instead I thought I'd try the CLEP. I have no background in literature and I haven't attended a class in nearly 10 years. I used only this book, I read the review, did all of the practice tests and then reviewed the detailed explanations for all of my wrong answers, I'd say I spent about 40 hours total studying and I work full time so this was sporadic. I took the test and passed with a 72, I highly recommend this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars CLEP Analyzing & Interpeting Literature
This text helped me past the exam. I could not have done it without this book. I read the book on and off for 4 weeks, refreshing my high school++ knowledge. I took the three exams and was at the just passing grade. When taking the test, I suggest that you move quickly through the test, marking those which you are not sure of; then, leave time to go back over those questions you have marked for review. Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth it
I haven't had a literature class in 15 years. I read this book cover to cover 2 times and scored a 68 on the Clep (50 is passing).

5-0 out of 5 stars I passed with this book!
I just recently took the Analyzing and Interpreting Literature CLEP and passed! I definitely owe all the credit to this book, because I didn't study anything else! The practice tests are very accurate and the literature review is concise and easy-to-read. I studied for about two weeks, maybe less. Definitely well worth it! ... Read more

Basically read this book, took the exams and aced the Clep. Excellent!

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to pass
Read the review and take all the exams. Excellent! I was totally prepared

3-0 out of 5 stars Read the full answer keys
I found the sample test material itself to be helpful in recognizing what to expect on the CLEP test. I concur with other reviewers - you need to read the answer key explanations because they do contain errors. It will tell you that answer "A" is correct, then go on to explain why answer "B" is the best choice. I thought I was nuts until I started reading more in depth!

It is unfortunate that what is supposed to be an instructional book contains so many inaccuracies. Other than that, I found it go be a good preparation - and I did pass the test.

1-0 out of 5 stars Problematic
The book contains numerous typos and editing mistakes. The explanations provided are often too brief to completely illuminate grammatical issues. The book uses incorrect sentences to demonstrate "how not to proceed" - a practice that has been outdated for decades. In general, this book struck me as churned out quickly and without much care and attention.

3-0 out of 5 stars It helps
I found this book to be quite useful as long as it is used in conjunction with other sources for preparation.To insure you are fully coverd for the test you will need to go more in depth into the things discussed in this book.Overall this book is a big help. ... Read more

This book helped me pass. The reviews were great! The practice tests will get you totally prepared.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great supplement for humanities CLEP
This book proved to be a comprehensive study guide for the Humanities CLEP. However, it is not enough to pass on its own. I would highly recommend purchasing additional general CLEP studies guides in order to take more sample tests. The sample tests in this CLEP guide are much more basic than the test. Also, you must supplement this guide with a good visual book of art & architecture from B.C. to present day. There are quite a lot of visuals of paintings, sculptures and architectural items to identify.

4-0 out of 5 stars You need this book!
THIS REVIEW IS FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED TO TAKE THE CLEP GENERAL EXAMS, BUT HAVE LITTLE OR NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE IN THE TEST SUBJECTS

I just took the new computerized Natural Sciences General exam.I took it on May 16th, 2002.

I reviewed information in this book, and Cracking the Clep, and Comex Books. THANK GOODNESS I HAD THIS BOOK. Every review I read said that that Cracking the Clep was best. After I studied that book, I thought I would Ace the test. The questions in Cracking the Clep was a lot easier than the ones on the new test.

When I was studying this book, I couldn't answer more than 60%-70% correctly. The material in this book was diverse and alot harder than the other books.

This turned out to be the KEY! Not one question in any of the books showed up on the test. NONE! However, since this book asked the broadest array of question, and had the broadest array of material, I was exposed to a vast expanse of what COULD be on the test. I learned the CONCEPTS. And That is the KEY to Passing.

I scored in the 94th Percentile. and finished the test 34 minutes early.

I do recommend Cracking the Clep as your first review. However, if you can get about 60%-70% of the answers right in this book, you should be well versed to pass the newer computer version of the Natural Sciences test. Get this book. Take the Practice Tests, and review your wrong answers.

7/18/02 Update ***
I used this book to study for the Social Science and History general exam also. I passed last week with 98% (percentile) in 42 minutes! -Before I studied, I knew virtually nothing of this subject nor Natural Sciences. This book, The companion book "Best review..., and Cracking the Clep (plus the Comex books) are all slightly different. However, If you know NOTHING about your subjects, these four books are essential. They are all you need.

I also just passed the English Comp with Essay using these books.

Remember, no matter what anyone says, NONE of these books will give you the answers directly on the test. What they do is expose you to general concepts, so many in fact, that when you see one on the test, you will have a good chance to choose the correct answer.

The CLEP is designed to be a general test. To pass, you have to know a little bit about a lot. This book, along with the others do just that. If you can pass the sample tests in this book with even 60% correct, using the scoring system in the book, you
can be assured that you will pass the clep. Don't waste your time at the library pouring over questionable material.
Use the above books. Read each. take the practice tests. Review your wrong answers only.

If you can get even 60% correct on all of the practice tests in this book, you will pass the Clep handily.

One final word: None of these books alone expose you to enough information if you previously did not know the subject. Use the books like this:

1. Best Review ... - Best general reading material
2. Cracking the Clep - Closest structure to the actual test, but
questions are very easy. Good confidense builder.
3. Best Test Prep (this book) - Hard diverse questions
4. Comex Books - Good Hybrid of all books, but not complete on
it's own.

If you use all four of these books, you will go into the tests with confidence and will score a lot higher than you would imagine.

1-0 out of 5 stars General is right!
I have to say that this book was very big, fairly expensive and NOT HELPFUL. I got a 60 on the Humanities exam, but not ONE question on the actual CLEP exam was in this book. I would suggest saving your money & going to the library to look at art books, listen to classical music, read literature and rely more on your stock knowledge of the fine arts. Had I not had a good background, I would have surely not passed. Not worth the study time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your time & money!
I purchased this book to prepare for the Natural Science general CLEP exam. I have just taken the exam, and I feel quite comfortable in saying, I don't think that this book helped me answer a SINLGE question on the exam. The book offers information that is far too general. For example, the ENTIRE human biological systems are convered in just three pages. Yikes! Until this CLEP I was 6/6, so I feel somewhat qualified in evaluating and recommending CLEP-preparation materials. Beleive me when I tell you, this is the worst book I've ever used!

Please, invest more time than I did in locating a study source for a six-credit CLEP exam. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Dissatisfaction Guaranteed!
Don't waste your time and money on buying this book. It includes ONLY sample tests and answers with no explanation of right and wrong answer choices. I took the Human Growth and Development test and the questions offered on the test compared with those offered in this book had very few similarities. The CD sampler simply teaches you how to use a mouse etc. Spend your money on something more resourceful.

1-0 out of 5 stars "CLEP Sampler" on the CD is a joke.
I wanted a CD with a sample test that I could actually practice with, on my computer. On the back of the book it says "Practice taking an exam on your computer using the enclosed CD" There is not even 1 question to practice with. The CD is full of directions on how to use your mouse and how to use the on-screen menu (during the actual test). I'm going to return this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Little Misleading
I chose this book over others because of the included CD-ROM that has "practice exams." To me this meant that I would be able to sit in front of my computer and complete entire exams to get the feel for the format and to make the scoring process faster. Practice exams in reality means that you'll get to take a look at the format of the test and you can practice clicking on navigational buttons, but you don't actually get to take practice tests on your computer.

You can actually download the information that you get on the CD-ROM from the CLEP web site for free.

The practice exams in the book are useful, but I'd say that "Cracking the CLEP" and "CLEP Success" are just as thorough in serving as study guides.

If the CD-ROM is what is enticing you to choose this title over the others, don't let it... it's more handy as a coaster than a study aid. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Some helpful info; many mistakes
I actually picked this book up at the library for some early prep for a state subject-specific test I'll eventually have to take (not for the CLEP). However, while I know this is harder than anything I'll have to take, the questions are definitely difficult and cover all the different aspects (I was focusing on the social science area). However, there are many erros in the answer key. The detailed answer is correct but the letter corresponding to it may not be. My favorite question was:

From 1845 to 1855, a considerable number of the immigrants to the U.S. came from:

A) China B) Ireland C) Greece D) Russia E) Spain.

Ireland, you say. WRONG. The answer according to the book is Germany. I have to admit from glancing at the other sections, I think the social sciences is easily the hardest. Anyways, it's worth getting if you are to take the CLEP probably but beware of mistakes. There probably is something better and more concise out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars High Marks for a good review book
I needed a review book for the math CLEP. One of my friends recommended the Barrons CLEP review book. It turned out to be a very good recommendation. The types of questions in the book were almost identical to the types of questions on the test. There were no surprises, no types of examples or problems I had never seen before. Even the percentage breakdown the book described of the various problems was pretty accurate. There were 60 questions on each of the three practice exams in the book plus the book provided an additional trial examination. Plenty of practice that allowed me to sharpen my question/answer skills. I didn't notice any typo's in the answer part. The book also gives a brief explanation of each answer. This is where I though the review book was a little shallow. When I was familiar with the material, the explanation of the answer was fine. When I need more depth in the answer, the review book didn't have it. Well, it's a review book, not a text book so I did not lower my rating. Needless to say, I had a scale score equal to an 'A' on a 6 credit CLEP College math test. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Clep Study guide for the principles of marketing exam.
I would not recommend using this book to study for the Clep exam. I have found that a Marketing text book sold at any college bookstore to be more useful. I feel that I did well on the exam due to reading and reviewing the textbook. The study guide contained only approximately 10% of the information that was on the test.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good resource for CLEP
For the CLEP:Principles of Marketing, I studied mostly from this book, and to some extent from Barron's Business Review-Marketing.
The book is useful because :
- it covers almost all the topics needed for study
- the questions are similar ( difficulty level, type , etc.)
to the actual test questions
- the explanations to the questions are helpful in understanding
the topics
Some drawbacks are :
- The study matter/chapters are too brief ( the questions and
the answers sort of compensate for that )
- Internet/e-commerce is left out

Overall, this book would definitely help in passing the CLEP exam. I took mine yesterday and got 74.

4-0 out of 5 stars This CLEP is pretty easy
This book covered the core material on the test. As others mentioned it does not go over internet marketing which is on the CLEP. I only skimmed the book and studied half of it before taking the test (not a whole lot of prep) and passed with a 69. Do not worry about studying too hard, this is one of the easiests CLEPs (I have taken 3 others).

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Review book you can find for Marketing CLEP
I just finished taking my CLEP exam this morning an recieved a 65 when I needed a 50 to pass. The only study material I used was this book. I studied it for a week, and took all the practice exams and reviewed the anwswers with the explinations in the back. There where a few questions on internet marketing on the test, but most of it was common sense. One question on the test was this "How do marketing companies rate the success of banner ads on websites" and out of the five answers they provided one was the most obvious "click-throughput" the rest where just stupid responses like "the banners size and color". Using a text book for this CLEP is over kill, and it might hinder your success, because this book sticks to the facts and the must know material. I highly recommend this book for the Marketing CLEP, if you only study this book like I have you still have a easy chance at passing this exam. Good luck :)
