I passed after studying for just 2 weeks~Thanks! -Katie B. 6/17/08

I just 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
