The student I worked with passed the CLEP on the first shot with a grade above minimum passing and a 94 on the NYS Regents. This book is highly recommended. There are 3 lengthy exams which you should complete.
The front of the text has a lot of good stuff on the following:
o adjectives and adverbs o present indicative, preterite, imperfect and conditional tense structures o present participle, reflexive pronouns, the infinitive and subjunctive etc.
The CLEP exam is a bit different from the NYS-Regents in Spanish. The Regents is more conversational. On CLEP, you must understand the grammar COLD ! There is no getting around a thorough understanding of the language. Remember that colleges will be waiving credit based upon your performance on this exam. Some colleges may require that you submit a writing sample in Spanish after you pass the CLEP exam.
Overall, the book is an excellent acquisition. Passing the CLEP can be worth thousands of dollars toward the college degree. In addition, colleges view the CLEP as prima facie evidence that you can do college work.
