The first essay involves writing about a common literary theme, while the second asks you to respond to an analysis of poetry. The 100 questions will test your knowledge of particular literary works (45%-60% of the test), your ability to understand and interpret short poems and prose (25%-40%), your knowledge of the historical and social setting of specific works (10%-15%), and your familiarity with critical terms and literary devices (5%-10%).

The vast amount of information you are required to know and apply for this test can be intimidating. We at Mometrix have developed a free practice test specifically for the CLEP American Literature exam with intentions to be an asset for students like you who want to succeed on test day.
