Reviews - What do our customers think?
Use this book!  Mar 19, 2008
This was the only book I studied for the CLEP. In addition I took the practice test in the CLEP Study Guide. I studied for two weeks (not consistently). This book was straight and to the point. I thought the test was challenging but this book helped a lot. There were a couple topics not covered in the book that were on the test (direct democracies and majority rule). If you don't want to spend a ton of time preparing, I recommend getting this book and the CLEP Study Guide.
Great CLEP review  Feb 23, 2008
I had about a week and a half to study and this book was the only study guide I used. I scored a 59 - not great, but a 50 is enough to pass.

Make sure you know the presidential election process inside and out. There were several electoral college questions that I got jammed up on. Also, a couple congressional election questions were included. Know the procedures and #of votes needed to propose and ratify amendments. Know your major supreme court case decisions, especially as they apply to civil liberties/rights.

Study this book and you should do okay.

Good luck.

All you need for the CLEP:  Aug 22, 2007
If you're looking for a study guide for the American Government CLEP test, then this book is all you'll need. I read it from cover to cover during the 3-days before my test and passed with flying colors. It covers EVERYTHING you need to know and doesn't leave anything out. I highly recommend it!
EASY CLEP!  Feb 2, 2007
This is the only book that you'll need to pass the American Government CLEP! I agree that you should do what it says in the other reviews and they're all good reviews but I would like to add a new slant. After you buy this book go and buy some page flags and mark every single page in the book that has words in BOLD format. Make your very best effort to read this book from cover to cover at least 2 weeks before you take the American Government CLEP. Then use the next 2 weeks before the test date to review all of the items in the book that are in BOLD which are easy to locate because of the page flags. Of course do what it says in the other reviews such as try know and have a good understanding of every Ammendment and Supreme Court Case in the book. After you pass the American Government CLEP give this book with the page flags still in it to somebody else because you won't need it anymore!
It works!  Mar 21, 2006
I studied the Cliff Notes American Government book and Microsoft Encarta for 2 weeks and got a 68 on the CLEP. This book has got it all covered for you.

That's not to say that all you need to do is read through this book once. American Government is a harder-than-average CLEP (most people score 5-15 points below their usual score with the same amount/intensity of study). The main difficulty lies primarily in the wording of the questions and answers, not necessarily the difficulty of the subject matter itself. They won't just ask a straightforward question with a straightforward answer. You have to be able to pull from your knowledge of several different facts in order to answer one question. Don't go in to the test without all your Amendments and Court Cases memorized.

However, this book is tailored to the point, focusing on all the issues you need to know. It can guide your study and help it to be maximally profitable.
