Hardest Tests

I would like to know about the pass and fail rates on tests to determine if CLEP DANTES or other methods are the best such as taking it in college.

RE: Hardest Tests

Hi there,

You may want to check out the official study guide of the College Board (2002 edition) in which
there are very useful information contained about
pass-fail statistics on CLEP exams.
However, I presume the CLEP & DANTES exams are standardized tests and their level of difficulty
is adjusted by the computer test program while taking them.
For a self-motivated individual, the best method is to get prepared from textbooks without attending college courses as for the lower-level subject tests.
I started out with college algebra, calculus, and statistics, and I passed with flying colors on the
first one for instance.

Good Luck to You!

RE: Hardest Tests

dantes are easier than clep and you don't get penalized for guessing

Don't be so sure about that!
You don't get penelized for guessing on CLEP
either. The only difference is that DANTES is
(at most test centers) is a non-timed exam!
That is, you can ask for extension, should you run out of time before finishing with the test.

The penalty for each wrong answer on a CLEP test is an additional 1/4 point off of your final score

You CAN study on your own! That's the beauty of it all. Just register and take the test.
