clep Biology
#1
I am trying to test out for the last 6 credits for my BS degree.  I am looking to take the clep biology, but have not studied biology since highschool over 30 years ago. Does anyone know if is passable just studying the Instant cert flash cards?
Huh

I would suggest using both InstantCert and ModernStates to study for CLEP exams. ModernStates lets you take the CLEP FOR FREE but it's not necessarily the best study guide. BTW, if you are an InstantCert subscriber, you get access to the subscriber section of the forum where more resources for studying for the various CLEP exams are shared.

Hey, Are your CLEP test centers open already?  Um, does it have to be the CLEP?  Would taking Sophia.org Biology and another Study.com Biology course do for you?  If it must be CLEP, then the previously mentioned ModernStates and InstantCertCredit combo should do the job.  You might want to review some info on other resources such as Youtube in regards to topics that you may not be too familiar with.

Instantcert flashcards are good. There are just so many of them. If you don't have time to get through all of them to mastery, focus on the topics you know less about and need to memorize facts and vocabulary. A huge chunk of the test covers molecular and cellular biology, make sure you know that well. Most people probably do pretty well on the anatomy and plans parts, but the cells and biomes are probably less well known if you haven't taken science in a few years.

The Bozeman AP Biology videos are great prep: http://www.bozemanscience.com/ap-biology
I also recommend taking the CLEP practice tests from the Official CLEP study guide.
The Cram dot com Clep Biology Flashcards from 2004 are helpful. You can export them to CSV format to get all Q&As in one file.

Thank you.  I have already paid for the Clep test and hoping to take in Late August.  Thanks for the advice, I will take a look at the suggestions for resources you all supplied.
