CLEP Study Hints: Keep 3 Things

Introduction: As I study for my CLEP tests, I have to work my study schedule around my family.   Many extracurricular activities, a science class I teach, and shopping trips are weekly interruptions to my “grueling college life”.  This works for 2 weeks, but for the last 2 weeks leading up to the test, something has to change.
