Description

American Government belongs to the Saylor.org CLEP® PREP Program. In taking this version of POLSC232, you will master the subject of American Government and Politics. This course is also designed to prepare you to take theCLEP® exam in American Government. The CLEP® (College Level Examination Program) exams are designed by the College Board, the organization which administers the AP and SAT exam programs you may have encountered or taken in high school. CLEP® exams test for the mastery of college-level material that you may have acquired through any number of ways – college-level course instruction, independent study, work experience, or any other program of study you have pursued. In other words, CLEP® exams are freestanding exams that any individual can pay to take in order to prove that he or she has mastered a given subject area at the college level.Over 2,900 US colleges and universities recognize and award college credit for a satisfactory score on a CLEP® exam. A student who earns a satisfactory score can be eligible for the same amount of college credit as a student who has successfully completed the same course at a traditional academic institution. Prospective students interested in accelerated degree programs are usually encouraged to take the CLEP® test. When you successfully pass each test, you will receive college credit that can:accelerate your degree;allow you to skip beginner courses and/or to take higher-level courses faster;help determine your readiness for classes;apply knowledge you already have; andsave money on books and tuition.All CLEP® exams are administered in multiple-choice format by computer. The American Government CLEP® exam contains 100 multiple choice questions to be answered in 90 minutes. The fee for each CLEP® exam is $80, plus any service fees payable to the testing center. However, eligible military service members and civilian employees can take CLEP® exams free of charge.
