BOOKS

 

  

 

 

Standard texts generally work well for CLEP, DANTES and ECE proficiency exams. The Cliff Notes versions if you can (i.e. any abbreviated text). You don't want to go too deep into the subject if your goal is simply to pass the exam at the appropriate level. That is why doing the example questions first is so important. They provide a benchmark indicating how much you need to know and whether or not you already know enough.

 

If your target is a simple pass and you're scoring 50% - sit the exam. If your target is a sure-fire "A" and you're scoring >77% - sit the exam.

 

If you are not reaching your minimum requirement, use the test as a map to where you must invest your efforts. What categories within the subject area are you failing on? Where, within those failures, might maximum credit be gained for study effort?

 

The texts I used were whatever I had to had in my library, what I could find on the net, and if I had to shell out for a book,whichever was the cheapest. Least expensive and time consuming of all will be where you have tried the mock exam and found you needed no further study (you met your target score). Then you need do nothing but take the test. This may happen to you with comforting regularity. I hope so, but if not, use the by now familiar algorithm: 

 


 

sit mock test

score test

 

WHILE (NOTPASS MOCK EXAM) DO

     revise

     sit mock test
     score test

 }


sit examination

 


 
 

 

 

CAUTION
There's a series of books called "ACT proficiency Series. Rudman's questions and answers on the PEP", from National Learning Corporation. These are ostensibly geared for use with the ACT/PEP  exams (now RCE AKA ECE). You might think then that these are  ideally suited for RCE exam revision. I tried to use a couple of these  and found them worse than useless. I mention it because if you have  to buy them, with shipping, it's likely to run you about $25 a pop. If  I thought you'd benefit in the slightest from using these things, I'd  say nothing, but as it is . . .
