    Took the CLEP exam after studying this book and it was a breeze. I scored a 73.

    This book was very comprehensive and if you take the time to really familiarize yourself with the material you should do well on the test.

    I supplemented the book with wikipedia.com and flashcard testing from instantcert.com.

    This review is from: CLEP: Introductory Psychology, TestWare Edition (Book & CD-ROM) (Paperback)

    I had to take this exam to place out of intro psych, and I had never taken a psych class before. I used this book as my primary study source. I supplemented the information in it with the Barron’s AP psychology review book because the clep book appears to be reasonably thorough but it could definitely use some extra stuff.

    Here are my recommendations for how to do well on the test..

    1) try not to wait until 2 or 3 days before like I did.
    2) read and study this book thoroughly so you REALLY know the
    stuff.. not necessarily 100% memorized, but pretty close.
    3) After you read through every chapter (all of which are short) Go through the same information in the AP book (the books are VERY VERY close in format)
    4) After you finish studying the stuff in the books, take a practice test, then grade yourself fairly, and then go over all of the answers, even the ones you got right because the cd gives explanations. then study what u didnt do well on
    5) do the same thing for the 2nd test.
    6) Finally, if u buy the individual study guide for this test from the college board website ( its around 10 bucks) that provides 61 questions directly from them. then take those too and keep building on everything youve learned it will all start to click. I took the exam today and i had trouble with some questions i felt were slightly vague or the terminology used was altered a little.. but if you reason through the answers and u know the stuff from the books, and take and learn the practice tests (a bunch of questions are very similar)then you will be in good shape for the exam.

    incase you are wondering i ended up getting a 73 out of 80 on this exam. I know this sounds complicated and long but definitely buy this book, and learn it. Hopefully this helps.. most importantly dont be nervous.

    Another quality product…, August 10, 2006

    This was my 5th CLEP and it was the toughest of them all. (Sociology, Marketing, Management, and Macroeconomics were the others). That being said, this guide is all you really need to pass. If you want to get say over a 70 then you should probably supplement it with other materials, but if just passing is good enough for you, then this is your book. I studied it for 9 days, took both tests, and pulled a 61. Good enough for me.
