CLEP Study Helps - Part 2

Once we determined that they knew enough to pass a CLEP, then we started to study for the test so that they would get a good score. It seemed like the REA books were the best prep once we go to that stage.



 

We used CLEP exams only for the things they already "sorta knew." So, typically, just reading through the REA book and taking the practice tests was enough, since they already were able to pass the test based on previous knowledge.



My son Alex did take one CLEP in a different way - psychology. He didn't want to take Psych in college (he was only 15 at the time and knew he didn't want to discuss Freud in mixed company!) He simply read through the REA book, and then he was able to take the test. I had bought him a psych textbook, but I don't think he read it much. I think it was mostly the REA books.

Lee,

I agree with you about the REA CLEP Study Guides. They are high quality and do a great job of preparing homeschoolers or anybody else to take the exams.

If you are interested, feel free to peruse my CLEP exam study guide review of other programs as well at http://www.squidoo.com/clepexams

Yvonne,
Here is what the Amazon website says:

"Research & Education Association (REA) is an organization of educators, scientists, and engineers specializing in various academic fields. Founded in 1959 with the purpose of disseminating the most recently developed scientific information to groups in industry, government, high schools, and universities, REA has since become a successful and highly respected publisher of study aids, test preps, handbooks, and reference works."

I've added several REA books to the post. You can purchase them from Amazon. The REA Biology book is written by homeschooling mom Laurie Callihan.

Hope this helps,

Blessings,
Lee

What are the REA books? I'm seriously considering the idea of doing a year of homeschool college myself, Lee. I really appreciate your help.
