English Literature CLEP STudy Guide|
English Literature CLEP Test Description
The English Literature CLEP test covers all the information that is taught
in a semester college course focused on English Literature. This test assumes that you are knowledgeable about various periods of English literature, their authors and any historical significance. You will also need to know literary terms and forms.
This test is offered in two different formats. One format requires the essay portion, the other does not. The essay is still done via paper and pencil so you will not find out your score immediately following the test. You will write two essays, one will be a persuasive analysis of a poem, the second you will have a choice of two topics which will be presented at the test.
If you do not take the essay format, you will have 90 minutes to answer 95 questions. As always, they will include some pretest questions which are not scored and will not effect your grade.
||CLEP Credits: 3-6
CLEP Difficulty: 3
ACE Recommended Passing Score: 50
Number of Questions on the CLEP Test: 95 + 2 Essays (at some schools, the essay is optional)

Testimonials for Pass Your Class - English Literature CLEP Study Guide
Thanks for your study guide. Our son passed the English Lit CLEP with a 64 and we were pleased! -Karen S.
I scored a 52 on the English Literature Test. -Brian M.
I did pass the English Literature in July... -Mary M
Thanks so much for the helpful study guide. I didn't put a ton of time into studying, but skimmed the suggested readings and brushed up on analyzing passages. I passed the test on the first try! Because my major is nursing, this study guide changed my thinking back to a humanities oriented process. The study guide tells you to know authors, their works and the literary periods- this cannot be emphasized enough! Again, thanks. -Andrea Z.
