About This Course
You can earn four hours of college credit in just a few weeks simply by using our calculus test prep course to prepare for the CLEP Calculus exam. Instead of spending an entire semester in a calculus course, you can use our engaging and thorough video lessons to quickly learn the same concepts you would find in class, including continuity in a function, rate of change, integrals and differential equations.
You can practice graphing derivatives and applying L'Hopital's Rule, learn how to estimate function values using linearization and calculate integrals of exponential functions using our short lessons taught by subject-matter experts. Retaining key info you'll need for the CLEP exam is easy when you watch our lessons featuring dynamic animations and on-screen graphics.
Check out our CLEP Preparation resources! We've got CLEP courses to teach you the material, comprehensive CLEP study guides to help you study, CLEP practice tests to test your knowledge, and CLEP informational articles to get you up to speed on testing logistics.
