The following exams have a significant amount of overlap with the English Composition exam, so you should consider taking them back-to-back or studying for them at the same time:

I have a few questions about CLEP exams..i couldn't find much information about them online

so, first of all how are the tests scored?

What is the English Composition modular exam like? Is it hard to get a 68? Do the essays come from collegeboard or from the college-how exactly does the "modular" exam work? Do you get to see the multiple choice score right away? or do you have to wait for the essay to be graded first? is the essay and MC weighted equally? Oh, and do you think the barrons clep book is a good reflection of the actual test? how would my scores on barrons (percentage wise) correspond to the actual test? I had a 3 on ap english lang exam but i needed a 4 to get credit, so im really gonna try hard to clep out of it. im pretty good with english I guess but i have some work to do..

What about Analyzing & interpreting literature..how is that like? i would need a 65 to get credit...

I'd appreciate if you could share your experiences on what you did to do well on these exams..also what are the best books to use to study for these, and what score on the practice tests would i need to get the scores i need (stated above)

Thanks in advanced!
