I took it.
I posted feedback on this exam but I don't think it ever went anywhere. Let me try and find it.
Snip! Here it is!
Firstly, there weren't a lot of questions that jumped out at me as something that you could simply grab a book and study. You seemed to need a general knowledge of world geography and where countries are in relation to water bodies etc.
What crops were NOT originally domesticated in North America
What US city historically suffers the most natural disasters
Know what classifys an undeveloped, developed and developing country
Know the difference between regional languages and what are language families
Where did Buddism originate
Where did confucianism originate
Know what a megolopolis is and what regions of the US are NOT classified as a megolopolis
You will be given graphs which show population in contrast to food supply
What is a consumption indication of a developed region (electricity?)
What is considered a non-renewable resource
A cold temp, but a clear sky in January in upstate NY is likely caused by what kind of weather pattern
What human tool causes the most drastic changes in the natural environment (bronze, steel, fire etc)
Do a google search for noted Cultural Geographers (there aren't many!) Learn a few of their notable theories
What city out of a list lies between 40 deg and 60 deg lat north or south and has a rainy winter and warm summer
What city in 20-30 deg north or south has a wet winter and a dry summer from a list
Learn what economic systems are and what regions can fall into them
Know what a core-periphery model is
Know what causes a pushing force in migration from countries
China is considered (multiple choice: resource rich, developed...resource poor developed....resource rich undeveloped etc....)
What is not considered a grass land: tiaga, meadow, plain, etc]
A country that is not near another that controls that country is an example of ...............(imperialism)
Where were humans located on the earth around 10,000 bc
Where did humans develop urbanization
What are the advantages of a flat map over a glope.....
What is false about lattitude: it's a meridian arc, it passes through Greenwich, it goes from 0 to 90 deg, it runs north and south
Know a few land physiography terms (I didn't know quite a few of them)
I passed this one with a B.
That's all I remember for now. If one of my questions doesn't make sense than it's probably my memory!There weren't many questions on the test that seemed difficult. Some of them seemed WAY too easy to be right, but after reading them a few times, I realized it was the only answer. I probably would take the Social Sciences Clep before this one. There are a lot of questions from the CLEP book that would apply to this test from there. As this test seemed kind of wandering and ambiguous at times, I probably would have been stressed out while taking it if I had paid for it. Unless your a big-time geography nut, I would pass this one by.
