# CLEP Precalculus Flashcards

Our CLEP Precalculus flashcards each contain one question that might appear on the CLEP Precalculus exam. You can use them to get a comprehensive overview of each topic covered on the CLEP Precalculus exam one problem at a time, or to do problem drills that focus on particular problem types or content areas found on the CLEP Precalculus exam.

Precalculus is a course that some mathematics students are expected to pass in order to take the more complicated and complex calculus course. It is a course that combines both trigonometry and algebra that a student could expect to see in a college-level mathematics course. If you’ve worked your way through the less academically-challenging mathematics courses and are looking to take more complex math courses when you begin college, you may want to consider testing out of precalculus through the College Level Examination Program.

The College Level Examination Program is a set of more than 30 standardized tests on specific subject matter that allow students to gain college-level credit for introductory-level college course work that they have some understanding of. Also called the CLEP exam, these are subject-matter tests that students often take during their freshman and sophomore years of college. Precalculus is one of those exams. Passing the CLEP Precalculus test can help you earn a maximum of three college-level credits for the exam, although that number varies, depending on the school you are applying to.

To prepare for the CLEP Precalc exam, you’ll likely want a variety of study options at your disposal. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include thousands of online Flashcards for CLEP Precalculus. The questions on these flashcards are designed to be similar to the multiple-choice questions you will encounter when you sit down to complete this CLEP exam, but they are not the exact questions you will have to answer.

As you move through these flashcards, you’ll be asked to solve questions that focus on functions, the properties of those functions, identifying asymptotes from an algebraic equation, and solving algebraic equations for specific variables. Each flashcard presents a single question and five potential answers. When you’ve solved the problem and selected an answer, you’ll see a detailed explanation of how to get to the correct answer. The explanation solves the equation and explains the theory behind each answer.

After you’ve solved the question listed on the flashcard, you’ll have the option to either return to the previous flashcards that showed the original equation, or you can move forward through the set of CLEP Precalc Flashcards. There’s no penalty for skipping questions, or for returning to questions that have already been answered.

If you’re looking for a Learning Tool that allows you to spend as little or as much time as you want in reviewing for the CLEP Precalc exam, these free flashcards online are one option. You can answer just a question or two, or devote several hours to serious review of these concepts. These online flashcards are accessible anywhere you have an Internet connection.

Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools also include other study aids, like Practice Tests you can use to judge how well you understand the concepts before you take your exam, and a Question of the Day series that presents a different precalc question every day for you to solve, which can give you an idea of how well you understand the overall subject.
