    Default Peterson's and history

    How close are Peterson's practice tests to the actual CLEP in Western Civ. 1 and US History 1? I scored 65, 70, and 82 on Peterson's Western Civ., but don't feel ready because they all seemed so hard. I can't take the real thing until June, so I continue to review.

    Scoring consistently over 60% on Petersons is amazing. I'd say you were ready now!

    That gives me hope cookderosa. I think the reason I feel so anxious about it is because I felt very unsure about a lot of the questions. I'm afraid I just had good guesses or that my actual test will be full of things I don't know well enough. I read good advice on another thread about just answering what you know on practice tests instead of guessing, but that was after I was already done. I also read that not all of the Peterson's are harder than the CLEP, so I just wanted to hear other people's experiences.
