Free Clep Prep

A free resource for those preparing for CLEP, DANTES and Excelsior Examinations

Welcome to the Bragging Post!

So what is the Bragging Post? Well I don't know about you, but walking out of a testing center after a successful pass feels great doesn't it?

You just picked up credits for a fraction of the time and money it would have otherwise taken you! I love that feeling! Of course you're excited, and if you're like me you want to share that excitement! This was created to give you a chance to do just that.

  • Did you just pass an exam? Finish your last class? Go ahead and shout to the heavens, do the digital happy dance, and let everyone know how happy you are.
  • Maybe you need a little motivation? Haven't taken a CLEP exam or DSST before and are a bit nervous? Achievement is addictive! Read about other's success here and get pumped up!

Taken all together, this makes the Bragging Post a pretty cool place to be!

Now this isn't a forum. Think of this rather as a twitter on steroids. Instead of just a little "tweet" though, you get a full fledged page that others can comment on! The usual forum rules apply, so be courteous and no spam please. I vet all posts and have the quickest "Ban IP" trigger-finger in this here town.

Go ahead, brag a little!

Smoked an exam and want to bask in victory? Post here and let everyone hear about it!

Share your experience with the test, post some tips on study resources, whatever you like!

Past victory stories!
