CLEP English Literature Practice Test

Everyone remembers the English Literature courses they took back in high school. Depending on your interest level in the subject, the class may have been the most interesting you’ve ever taken, dreadfully boring, or somewhere in between. Regardless of how you felt about it back then, you may not feel the need or desire to take it again now that you’re in college! However, many colleges require its first-year students to take this course as part of their general education curriculum.
