My son is interested in CLEP for English, but I need some help with planning this along with his other work. He is doing an English curriculum, should he just stop it for the 8 weeks to study for the CLEP? He already takes a long time to finish his English, especially the writing.

If your son wants to CLEP English, and passes the CLEP exam, that will demonstrate that he has a college amount of learning in the area of English.
