The questions in the practise College Math exams are pitched slightly harder than in the actual CLEP. I found them overall quite tricky and considered myself well prepared for the exam. I scored about 65-70% on the first of the 3 Maths exams for instance. A few questions there I was doubtful about whether they'd have made it into the actual CLEP exam. It seems very odd to go from a very hard question to a very easy one. Feels very uneven overall. My estimate is that if you are scoring about 60% of the questions right in the sample exams that probably translates to about 10-15% less than your actual CLEP score on the day. Saying that, and in comparison to what else is out there, I consider the questions in the College Board book to be much too simple in comparison. The reality is I think somewhere in between both books. The annoying thing about he College board though is once you answer their 60 or questions well that's it, how many times can you do them again. So this book wins over that in that there are considerably more questions. Maybe that's just my experience of it but I am certainly open to other people's thoughts on how they found this book. If you are looking for a battery of test questions and have a few extra bucks to throw around then this is quite a good book and it's cheaper than most of the others out there. However it is no use for cramming, if you are on a tight budget, since there is no teaching in the book, just questions. In other words it's additional to whatever texts you are using but in no way is it a single text that will answer all your questions.

This is a very good prep tool for students preparing for a CLEP examination. HOWEVER - I DID find an outright error in one of the tests. The question asked who the inventor of the geodesic dome was, and gave the correct answer as "R. Buckminster Fuller." This is an error; the Geodesic Dome was invented by Walter Bauersfeld of the Zeiss Optical Works in Jena, Germany in 1922, and the first use of it was as a planetarium on the roof of Zeiss that year. Fuller would not begin constructing and popularizing geodesic domes until the 1940s. It is his popularization of them, and his coining of the phrase "geodesic dome" that leads many to believe he invented them. But Bauersfeld was there first, at least a dozen years earlier.

I wrote to the company's website informing them of this error; they have never responded. I haven't given up yet, though...;)
