So, how do CLEP exams stack up as to difficulty? It is hard to say with precision because College Board and Dantes do not publish their overall pass rates, but the military posts their pass rates online. Military testers can take CLEP or DSST (Dantes) exams for free which could influence their choice to take an exam “cold” or without a lot of preparation. That being said, here are the military pass rates, arranged easiest to most difficult.2008 Pass Rate for Computer-Based Military TestingCLEP/DSST Exam Pass RateDSST Technical Writing 94%CLEP Spanish Language 88%DSST Introduction to Computing 83% (or 53%)*DSST Introduction to Business 81%DSST Ethics in America 82% (or 30%)*CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature 71%DSST Here’s to Your Health 70% (or 41%)*DSST Principles of Supervision 69%CLEP Principles of Management 67%DSST Business Mathematics 66%DSST Human Resource Management 65%CLEP Principles of Marketing 64%CLEP German Language 64%CLEP Freshman College Composition 64%CLEP French Language 63%DSST Introduction to Law Enforcement 62%DSST Personal Finance 61% (or 31%)*DSST Environment and Humanity 60%DSST Management Information Systems 58% (or 33%)*DSST Foundations of Education 56%CLEP Western Civilization 1 55%DSST Fundamentals of Counseling 55%DSST Organizational Behavior 53%DSST Introduction to World Religions 53% (or 30%)*DSST Astronomy 52%DSST Principles of Physical Science 1 52%DSST Introduction to Modern Middle East 49%DSST Business Law 2 48%CLEP Social Sciences and History 47%CLEP Introductory Sociology 45%CLEP Western Civilization 2 44%CLEP Introductory Psychology 42%DSST Lifespan Developmental Psychology 42%DSST Human Cultural Geography 40%CLEP College Mathematics 40%DSST Criminal Justice 40% (or 35%)*CLEP Natural Sciences 40%CLEP Information Systems and Computer Applications 40%CLEP English Composition with Essay 39%CLEP Humanities 37%DSST Rise and Fall of the Soviet Union 37%DSST Substance Abuse 37% (or 39%)*DSST Civil War and Reconstruction 35%DSST Western Europe since 1945 35%DSST Art of the Western World 34%CLEP English Literature 33%DSST General Anthropology 33%CLEP History of the United States 2 32%CLEP History of the United States 1 31%CLEP Biology 31%CLEP English Composition 31%CLEP Introduction into Educational Psychology 29%CLEP Precal 28%DSST A History of the Vietnam War 27%CLEP American Government 24%DSST Principles of Statistics 24% (or 49%)*DSST Fundamentals of College Algebra 23% (or 12%)*CLEP Principles of Macroeconomics 22%DSST Principles of Financial Accounting 22%CLEP Human Growth and Development 22%CLEP Introductory Business Law 21%CLEP Principles of Microeconomics 20%CLEP American Literature 18%CLEP College Algebra 17%CLEP Calculus 17%DSST Money and Banking 16%DSST Principles of Finance 11%CLEP Financial Accounting 7%CLEP Chemistry 4%DSST Physical Geology 2%Bear in mind a few details. These pass rates are for 2008 military on base computer versions of these exams. Some have been modified since these results were compiled. The best way to make an exam easy is to work hard, use the best materials available and study for exams that interest you. And a sure fire edge is being a member of InstantCert.More later on what makes an exam easy.*New updated DSST exams

News from the Library of CongressInaugurations Past, Presidential Papers and Pandemic Photo Collecting Dr. Carla Hayden headshot Friends,Happy 2021 to each of you! This year has already proved to be an eventful one.Like many of you, I am disappointed and disturbed by the recent unrest at the Capitol. This was one of the most significant breaches of the Capitol in its history since the War of 1812 when the building was on fire and the Library of Congress was burned as well.Following those events Thomas Jefferson sold his library to Congress, and it remains the foundation of our institution today. I am relieved to say that the Jefferson library, all of our collections, and most importantly our staff members are safe and secure. You can read more about how the Library of Congress survived its destruction during the War of 1812 to become the nation's and the world's pre-eminent source of knowledge and information in this past Library of Congress Magazine issue about our history (p.8).As we turn our attention to today's historic inauguration of the 46th president of the United States, Library staffers have published a number of blog posts examining inaugurations past. Find links to those below, and read about the completion of our initiative to digitize the papers of nearly two dozen early presidents.
