This study guide was all I used to get a 71 on the Business Law clep. I was planning on studying it for a few days before the exam but I got busy and only spent about a day and a half on it. I got really frustrated on the section on contract law, the material was explained well but I found it so confusing I put down the book and didn't study anymore that day. Then the day before the test I read the review section cover to cover, including the contract law chapter and it made sense to me reading it for the second time, I think I just needed time to let the material settle in my brain because I found the terms very confusing the first time I read it. I took the first practice test and scored a 62 on it. Good enough for a pass, I was done studying. The next morning right before the exam, I spent about 1 hour reviewing the book, only reading the sentences that had a word in bold print. I sat for this exam without much confidence but knew I'd easily pass 15 questions in to the exam, my actual score on the exam was 71. The questions in the REA guides exam were more difficult than the questions on the real test, which made me unjustly nervous about sitting for the real thing. You have to understand contracts and torts pretty well as well as there being 1 question on the writ of certoriari (supreme court question, kind of random). Don't spend too much time focusing on the details of business partnerships and corporations, just know the generalities and you'll do well. This test focuses mostly on contracts between people and the general legal environment of business (HR laws). If you understood that stuff you'll score in the upper percentiles on this one.

I passed the test with a 69 (apparently the equivalent of an A) after studying this book for about four weeks. There are a lot of topics to cover, and I feel that the author did a pretty good job of presenting most of what was needed and certainly enough to pass. The examples and explanations of the practice tests are excellent.

This didn't get 5 stars for a couple of reasons. The book didn't come with the computerized practice test, which has really helped on other CLEP tests (my own fault for not spending the extra $). Additionally, it would have been helpful to have a quick review section at the end of each chapter covering vocabulary and important concepts. I found one error in one of the practice tests, but it wasn't a big deal. It's not perfect, but it's very good.

I supplemented this book with Wikipedia, as they have a pretty good law section to cover specific topics.

I teach a Business Law class in high school. I decided to use this REA book this year instead of my normal text and see if my students could pass the CLEP exam. We normally don't cover as much as this REA book includes, but I figured, we might as well try for some college credits if we can get 'em. All of my students outlined the book, created flow charts and mind maps, etc. We looked at all the questions and explanations to figure out why the wrong answers were wrong (not just to see what the correct answer was).

Today one of my students took the CLEP exam. This student is very conscientious and took the two practice exams multiple times. When she first took it, she was scoring in the 80% range. After a while she was so familiar with the questions in the REA book that she was scoring in the 90+% range. After studying the REA book for so long, she took the College Board's 70 practice questions (which she had never seen before) and scored 65%. This was a drop from her REA scores, but still gave her a substantial cushion over the 50% mark needed to "pass" the CLEP. Seeing this, we were confident that she would get at least a 50 on the real exam. She took the CLEP test today and, unfortunately, scored a 46. Talk about heart break. She noted that there were MANY questions that were not covered in the REA book. I honestly don't see how the 5-star ratings accurately reflect the usefulness of this REA study guide. My student essentially experienced a 19% drop between the College Board questions and the actual CLEP exam. She had an even more precipitous drop from the REA to the actual exam. If she knows the REA content so well, but can't pass the actual exam, then something is wrong. From my perspective, it's the book that is lacking -either its coverage is not broad enough, or it's not covering topics in the depth that is required to pass the exam. I don't think I'm gonna use this book any more and I definitely don't recommend it...

I passed the CLEP exam on the first try after studying this book. It was very easy to understand and made complicated concepts simple to grasp. I was scoring 55-60 on the practice exams on the CD-ROM but scored 84 on the actual exam. I recommend this book.

****** REAL ADVICE FOR REAL PEOPLE IN THE WORKFORCE / BUSY LIFE ****** I bought this book and the Barrons book for the Clep exam. I read the book entirely and took notes for the bold words. The test has 2 exams for preparation. It took me a month to read the whole thing from start to finish. I took the exam using this book and FAILED. I took it again using the Barron's book and PASSED. The legal scenarios I found to be the most helpful portions of the book. Not all the legal terms that I saw on the exam appeared in this book. I have a 3.71 GPA and I study pretty hard for tests so this caught me off guard. The test was so hard that every answer seemed to be worded almost the same so its very tricky. Those other reviews with 5 stars may have been written by individuals who don't work a full-time job or have scholarships and only go attend school all day. If you are a student and only a student then I'd say buy it. Let me warn you that this book alone is not suffice at all. The book is very thin and it doesn't cover enough. It does help you but I would say only 65%. The other 35% was foreign and I would have needed to buy a third book to find these terms. Just take the class its easier and less time-consuming.
