**College
Algebra CLEP Test**
The
College Algebra CLEP Test covers the material that is taught in
a one-semester class at the 101 college level. Half of this test
is simple questions dealing in algebra. The remainder of the questions
are solved by applying your knowledge to the possibly abstract question
and determining an answer.
This
test will cover basic algebra, equations (linear and quadratic)
and logarithmic functions. This test assumes that you know the basic
vocabulary, symbols and notations generally found in a college level
algebra course. No questions will require the use of a calculator.
However, there is a calculator built in to the testing center software.
You will not be able to bring your own calculator.
This
is one of the easier CLEP exams that you can take. Unless you are
very experienced in math, we recommend that you take the earlier/easier
math exams. The order of difficulty is as follows, from easiest
to hardest: college mathematics, college algebra, precalculus, calculus.
You
will need to answer 60 questions in 90 minutes. There is no penalty
for guessing on the test and there are some pretest questions included
that are not scored. |
