SIM-001 – American Literature

About the Course
The American Literature examination covers material that is usually taught in a semester survey course (or the equivalent) at the college level. It deals with the prose and poetry written in the United States from colonial times to the present. It is primarily a test of knowledge about literary works ??? their content, background and authors ??? but also requires an ability to interpret poetry, fiction and nonfiction prose, as well as a familiarity with the terminology used by literary critics and historians. The examination emphasizes fiction and poetry and deals to a lesser degree with the essay, drama and autobiography. This exam has an optional essay that may be required by some colleges and universities. The essay section is administered at test centers in paper-and-pencil format, and the fee is payable to the test center that administers the exam. This essay is scored by faculty at the colleges and universities that require them. If you have questions about whether you need to take the optional essay, you must contact the institution that will receive your scores. If you do not select an institution to receive your optional essay on exam day, CLEP will retain your essay for 18 months.
