About CLEP Professor
CLEP Professor, a software series taught by Dr. David Shormann, prepares students for select College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Advanced Placement (AP) exams by teaching each topic using digital interactive video lectures. CLEP Professor is unique among CLEP and AP exam prep courses because it is taught from a Christian worldview, acknowledging God as Creator and Author of all knowledge. With CLEP Professor and a few weeks of study, students can bridge the gap between their high school course and college credit!
CLEP and AP exams, administered by the College Board and accepted by over 2900 colleges and universities nationwide, allow students to earn college credit by passing an exam instead of taking the college course. Soaring tuition prices have many parents and students looking for alternative ways to earn college credit. While CLEP and AP exams, costing about $80 to gain three to eight college credits, look very inviting, many students struggle with learning college-level material without a teacher. CLEP Professor provides that teacher!
