How to Pass the CLEP College Algebra Exam & Get Credit for College Algebra

Do you want college credit for algebra and need to know how to pass the CLEP College Algebra exam?


As a motivated and excited student, I know you answered yes to this question!  By not having to take College Algebra or a similar math class at your college you will save yourself precious time and money– so it’s a worthy goal to work hard and do the best you can on the CLEP College Algebra Exam! However, the only way to do great on the CLEP College Algebra exam is to truly know and understand all the key concepts and skills taught in high school Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. Ask yourself, “do I really remember everything from all my math classes in high school?” if not, don’t worry as there is a great way to relearn and sharpen all your high school math skills! But, before we go over the Best Way To Prepare for the CLEP College Algebra exam – how much do you know about the actual CLEP College Algebra Test?


How to Pass the CLEP College Algebra Exam – What You Should Know

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) Algebra Test is a standardized test designed to assess student knowledge and skills in the area of algebra.

The CLEP College Algebra Exam is designed to assess a student’s knowledge and understanding of basic algebraic operations, linear equations, quadratic equations, polynomials, functions, exponents and logarithms. These topics were covered in your high school Algebra 1 & 2 classes. The CLEP College Algebra exam has approximately 60 multiple-choice questions which must be answered within 90 minutes time frame. CLEP exams are administered by the College Board and CLEP College Algebra credits can count for up to three college credits at some colleges/universities.

What’s the Best and Most Efficient Way to Learn Math Before Taking the CLEP College Algebra Exam?

The answer is simple: the best way to learn math is to learn directly from an experienced math teacher that can explain math in a way you like and understand! No one can teach you math better than an actual math teacher as teaching math every day is their profession!  Of course, it’s almost impossible to find a good math teacher that will sit down and re-teach you everything you learned (or did not learn) in high school math one-on-one…..but fortunately, there is a something that’s just as good!
