CLEP, DSST and CHALLENGE Exam List & Study Guides

Studying for CLEP and DSST Examinations

The CLEP and DSST study guides name reference textbooks that were being used at the time the exams were being developed. Appropriate textbooks for study are not limited to those lists. You may reference either the current edition of the listed titles from the links below, or textbooks currently being used for a college course of the same title.

DSST recommends that you reference more than one textbook on the topics outlined in the fact sheet. Begin by checking the textbook content against the content outlined on the first page of the fact sheet. Textbooks can be found at the library, campus bookstores or from a variety of websites that sell new and used textbooks.
