Should We Take a CLEP Test After Every "A" Class?

Should you always take a CLEP test after every class your child gets an "A" in?  Not necessarily.  It depends on if the CLEP will help your child get into college - but there is one very important factor to consider!  Here is what one mother asked:
I read on your website that your son passed the CLEP test for Biology after taking the Apologia course. My son just finished taking that class from a lady in our community and got an A. Should I be having him take that test???

My husband read that question and said, "Hey Lee!  I actually KNOW the answer to this one!"  LOL!  He's so cute.  Anyway, you can give him a CLEP test if you think a CLEP score may help him, but you want to make SURE that he can pass the test first.  Give him a sample test, make sure he can get 50% or better on it.  If so, then you can consider giving him the test for real.  Some colleges don't accept CLEP, but I still find it a useful tool for some outside documentation for classes taught at home.  Here is the website I have about using CLEP to homeschool college.
