CLEP - The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of examinations that allow you to earn college credit for what you already know, regardless of where you learned it. CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the United States. http://clep.collegeboard.org/

Preparing for CLEP - It is recommended that you use The Official Study Guide for the CLEP Examinations to prepare for the CLEP tests. The guide contains sample questions and a brief summary of exam content for each exam. Study materials are available online at the following websites:

DSST - The DSST Program offers over 35 examinations in a wide range of college-level academic, technical, and business subjects. Some are subjects that people may have studied as a hobby or special interest, e.g., astronomy, anthropology, and art; others are tests that cover material people may have learned on the job, e.g., financial accounting, personnel supervision, and law enforcement. www.getcollegecredit.com

Preparing for DSST - For each of the DSSTs there is a fact sheet/Study Guide which outlines the topics covered by each test. The Fact Sheet/Study Guide is available at www.getcollegecredit.com.
