Ever wish you could test out of certain lower-level college courses which deal with material with which you’re already extremely familiar? CLEP exams let you do just that, so if you’re a Precalculus expert who could use a few more credits, the CLEP Precalculus exam may be an opportunity well-suited to your talents.
The CLEP Precalculus exam is composed of about 48 questions total, which are organized into two sections, and you’re given an hour and a half in total in which to answer all of them. The 25 or so questions on the first part of the exam allow you to use an online graphing calculator to solve them. You’re given 50 minutes to solve these questions. After this, you answer the remaining 23 or so questions on the exam in the second part, which does not allow calculators to be used. The remaining forty minutes of exam time are allotted to these problems. Most CLEP Precalculus questions are given in multiple-choice format, but some of them may ask you to input your answer instead of presenting answer choices.
So, what’s tested on the CLEP Precalculus exam, exactly? You can expect to encounter mathematical concepts focused on equations, inequalities, functions, and graphs, as well as basic trigonometry, limits, and series. Do these concepts sound familiar, but have you not had to solve a two-variable equation in a while, or shift the graph of a parabola by making changes to its equation?
