SAVE TIME AND MONEY! EARN COLLEGE CREDIT BY EXAM!
Soaring tuition has many parents and students looking for alternative ways to earn college credit and avoid unbearable student loan debt.

CLEP Professor provides that teacher!
WHAT'S ON THE CD-ROM?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
CLEP Professor, designed and taught by Dr. Shormann, is a three week course which bridges the gap between the high school course and the corresponding CLEP or AP Exam.

With CLEP Professor, students can earn up to 34 college credits, saving time and money!
Take the Diagnostic Test
This test saves time by prescribing which of the twenty lessons to complete.
Watch the Video Lecture
Dr. Shormann teaches every lesson step by step on a digital blackboard that looks and sounds like a live classroom. Students work interactively, taking notes and working problems along with him. Easily pause, rewind, and fast-forward until the new concept is fully understood. Meet Dr. Shormann here.
Do the Practice Problems
Following each lesson are 10-15 practice problems which reinforce understanding of the new concept.
Watch the Video Solutions
Ensuring understanding, every practice problem has a video solution that works the problem step by step. The video solution is shown after each problem, giving the student immediate feedback.
Take a Practice Exam
After completing all the prescribed lessons, the first Practice Exam is taken. Each question on the exam is referenced to the lesson the problem was taught in so students can easily relearn forgotten concepts. Continue taking the Practice Exams until a passing score is acheived.
Take the Exam
College Algebra is only offered as a CLEP exam. CLEP Exams are multiple choice exams so they are a little easier than AP exams. However, they are accepted at over 1,500 college across the nation. CLEP exams can be scheduled anytime of year and are administered at the testing department of your local community college or university.
While there aren't any age restrictions, a goverment issued picture ID is required. Your CLEP scores are stored at the College Board until you are admitted to a college and request they be sent.

My son used this before Christmas after completing his Algebra II book. The diagnostic test was very helpful. He missed half of it and then started watching the videos for the sections that he missed. After one week with CLEP professor, he took the CLEP exam and scored a 69. He felt well prepared for the test and is looking forward to using the Pre-Calculus CLEP Professor after he finishes his Pre-Calculus book.

I have used Dr. Shoremann's products before and loved them. I went through Saxon Algebra 2 over seven years ago, thus I was very rusty and this was just what I needed to refresh me.The lessons are very informative and easy to understand. Going through this program gave me confidence when taking the test. The practice exams were helpful to help gauge time limits and get used to the pressure. I did have a few questions on the practice exams that had errors, such as, asking me to examine a graph to produce an answer but the graph was not visible. Overall this is a very good preparation tool.
