A CLEP College Algebra course from Varsity Tutors is an opportunity for you to study in a focused, individualized manner for this important exam. Because many colleges allow students who pass a CLEP test to receive course credit and bypass introductory-level courses, a CLEP College Algebra class can have a significant impact on your academic career.

CLEP College Algebra courses can help you to refine and solidify your understanding of key algebraic ideas. The CLEP test assumes that those taking it are already familiar with the vocabulary, notation, and symbols used throughout algebra.

# Questions |
Time |

Algebraic operations | 25% | 60 | 90 Minutes |

Equations and inequalities | 25% | ||
