wanted to drop you guys a line and tell you that I passed my final
CLEP exam last Monday which gives me all of the credits I need to
graduate. I have taken 30 credits worth of CLEP exams and I’ve
passed them all by using your study guides. I actually purchased
one of your study guides and failed my first test. I didn’t
fail because of your guide though, I failed because I didn’t
manage my time effectively and I ran short. I looked at your study
guide after failing though, and a lot of the information on your
study guide was very relevant to what was on the test. So, I tried
again with a different test and a different study guide of yours.
I passed. This pattern continues for 30 credits. I graduate on June
9th thanks to you guys, so I wanted to say thank you. The guides
were worth every penny. Thanks, -John S 5/21/07
