Thanks. I did that on the second CLEP. They started processing the check a couple weeks ago.

Yeah, I figured it's just a matter of dividing 70 (my score) by 80 (total), which equals 87.5%. So that feels good. Thanks.
That really wouldn’t work because the scoring starts at 20.  So if you get all of them wrong you’re still going to get a 20.  I’ve read some where that generally rule of thumb..... 50 is a C, 60 is a B, and 70 is an A.

Also I’m wondering if everyone is reading the text books provided with the ModernStates course when saying they don’t prepare you for the tests?  They provide a full first year college equivalent school text book that you are suppose to read along with the video lectures.

About the book, one one hand, yours is a fair point. The answer is, no, I didn't read the entire textbook. I started to, but I just have trouble reading hundreds of pages online. When I read a book, I need to have it in my hands.

For every CLEP so far, I have participated in Modern States courses, as well as using a CLEP study guide. I use the practice questions from both, as well as the official ones that I found online.

I'm the same way, that's why I use Study.com, their videos are great.  Reading bores me, at least school reading! Haha!  But I'm sure if you did the full course readings you would be prepared.  The Biology one is the worst, I think if you only watched the MS videos on that one you would be lucky to get a 20! HAHA!
