CLEP Difficulty Scoring

Which CLEP tests are the easiest, which are the hardest and what is in between?

Can you tell me what the degree of difficulty means. How is it scaled? I’ve seen test rated at 2-3 difficulty rating.  What does that tell me?





We score each CLEP and DANTES exam on our website with a difficulty rating. The scoring is from 1-5 with 5 being EXTREMELY difficult. A score of three would be average,  a score of two would be easier than average. These scores are also based on the concept that you are a native English speaker and that you do not have prior experience in the subject. If you have experience in biology for example, for you of course it would be easier than listed. If you are a native German speaker, the German CLEP test would be very easy.

Don't forget that you can take and pass any CLEP test if you put your mind to it!

And - we guarantee you'll pass your CLEP test, or your money back!

Biology - Can you take and pass this CLEP test if you've never taken it in highschool?

Is it possible to study this guide and pass the Biology CLEP without ever taking high school Biology, etc.?



Yes but this is a more “meaty” test. You will need to put in plenty of time to know the concepts backwards and forwards. Based on no prior experience in the subject, it will take longer to learn the material that is covered in the study guide. But if you make a concerted effort and a study schedule, of course you can pass this CLEP test. In fact, we recommend this test as the EASIEST of the CLEP science tests offered.

The other CLEP tests in science are:

Natural Sciences

Of the three, Biology is by far the easiest!

I've got CLEP Questions!

How does scoring work for CLEP letter grades?

Does your study guide address all information that will be on the CLEP test?  My school assigns a grade (A, B, or C) to the score, so passing is not enough.  It is important to keep my GPA high.  Also, what is the difference in product between downloaded and shipped?  Also, how quickly is it shipped, from where, and by what transport?  Thanks, Lisa


Hi Lisa,

We teach you what you need to know to pass the test with our clep study guides. Because each school can require a different score level for A, B, C, such as Excelsior, we recommend the following:

If your want to score an A in the subject, you will need to know absolutely everything in the study guide. These tests were designed so that if you score 50% correct, you will pass or get a “C”. 

However, since your school can determine the letter grade to be anything they want, you will need to score extremely high. A way to test yourself to see if you are ready is after studying the material to a point where you feel confidant you know it all, randomly flip through the book until you pick some place at random. Verbally teach and explain that concept to someone else. If you cannot, you are not ready. Repeat until you are. :)

If you want to have the study guide shipped, it is shipped USPS via standard (First Class) or expedited (Priority) mail – which is your choice at checkout. It ships from the West Coast so standard shipping to the West Coast is about 3-5 days, expedited about 2-3 days. East coast will add 1-2 days for each estimate.

The download copy is downloaded immediately after purchase to your computer. You will need to download it and save it to your hard drive. You will not be shipped anything if you choose the download. You will view it and read it in Adobe PDF Reader (free). 

Or you can download it from iBookstore or Amazon but you will have to view it on their devices.

Let us know if you have more questions!

How difficult is the Subtance Abuse DSST?

How difficult is the Substance Abuse DSST?

It depends what your background is. As the name suggests, you'll be learning about different types or drugs, their categories, and their effects on the body. Drugs on this test also include tobacco and alcohol.

Many students going into nursing or other medical professions will already be familiar with topics on this test. Also, many students take this as a follow up to the Here's To Your Health DSST test because there is some overlap with the information.

On a scale from 1 to 5, five being extremely difficult, this is definitely a 3. Most people are familiar with at least a part of the content and there is some memorization, but the concepts are not difficult to understand.

We have LOTS and LOTS of testimonials from students that have passed the Substance Abuse test which you can check out and a more detailed description of the test.
