Precalculus CLEP TEST

Precalculus CLEP Test

The Precalculus CLEP Test covers the material that is taught in a one-semester class at the 101 college level. This test covers the following types of functions: linear, quadratic, absolute value, square root, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piecewise-defined.

Before you take the test you should have a good understanding of precalculus and applying it. This test assumes that you already know the basics of math, geometry, trigonometry and algebra. This is the second hardest of all the math 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 48 questions in 90 minutes. There is no penalty for guessing on the test and there are some pretest questions included that are not scored.

Number of Questions: 48

The test is broken up into two sections. The first section includes 25 questions which must be answered in 50 minutes. For this section, you are allowed to use a graphing calculator. One will be provided to you at the testing center via their online testing software. You are NOT allowed to bring your own. Some but not all questions in this section will require the calculator. You are required to be familiar and know how to use the testing calculator before the test begins. So you do not waste time becoming familiar with it, you are allowed to download a free 30-day trial of the exact calculator that you will be using. You can access that file and information here.

For the second section, you will need to answer 23 questions in 40 minutes. You are not allowed to use a calculator for this section. Most of the exam questions are multiple-choice, however, on some questions you will be required to enter a numerical answer.

The sections of the Precalculus CLEP test are broken down as follows:

I passed! -Rebecca V. 4/9/08

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
