    Any student interested in taking the CLEP test should contact their math teacher, Ms. Lloyd, or Mrs. Richardson.

    If you are thinking about taking the CLEP test you should:

    1.  Check with your college to make sure they accept CLEP credits

    2.  Practice - there are 3 practice tests included but you should also be able to find practice books at Border's or Barnes and Noble
