Western Civilization I & II CLEP
Does anyone have good study suggestions for the Western Civilization CLEPs? Business related CLEPs as well as US History have been a breeze but for some reason I am not retaining the topics that well when reading the REA study guide.

I took Western Civ I last week and just barely passed with a 50. It's a difficult one but I'd suggest taking the practice exams in the REA book and seeing where you're at. If I recall correctly a 50/120 raw score on the REA practice tests is roughly equivalent to a scaled passing 50 on the actual CLEP. The practice exams are very similar to the actual CLEP.

There were a few questions where you are given a map and asked which civilization controlled the shaded land during a certain time period similar to the ones shown in the book but there were only 3 or 4 of these questions so I wouldn't worry about those at all.

The other questions I found difficult were descriptions of someone's life and accomplishments where you matched the person who was being described.

I adore history, read about it and watch documentaries for fun. I bought a Western Civ I college textbook and the REA CLEP guide to study, as I have for every other CLEP I've taken. Even after all that I was intimidated enough by the scope of material on the CLEP to just take the courses through Straighterline. It was less stressful.
