The Calculus examination covers skills and concepts that are usually taught in a one-semester college course in calculus. The content of each examination is approximately 60% limits and differential calculus and 40% integral calculus. Algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and general functions are included. The exam is primarily concerned with an intuitive understanding of calculus and experience with its methods and applications. Knowledge of preparatory mathematics is assumed, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and analytic geometry.
The examination contains 44 questions, in two sections, to be answered in approximately 90 minutes. Any time candidates spend on tutorials and providing personal information is in addition to the actual testing time.
A graphing calculator, the TI-84 Plus CE, is integrated into the exam software, and available to students during Section 2 of the exam. Only some of the questions actually require the graphing calculator.
To use the calculator during the exam, students need to select the Calculator icon. Information about how to use the calculator is available in the Help icon under the Calculator tab. Students are expected to know how and when to make appropriate use of the calculator.
Information about the graphing calculator, including opportunities to practice, is available here.
In order to answer some of the questions in section 2 of the exam, students may be required to use the online graphing calculator in the following ways:
Questions on the exam require candidates to demonstrate the following abilities:

Notes and Reference Information
To prepare for the Calculus exam, you should study the contents of at least one introductory college-level calculus textbook, which you can find in most college bookstores.You would do well to consult several textbooks, because the approaches to certain topics may vary. When selecting a textbook, check the table of contents against the knowledge and skills required for this exam.
A survey conducted by CLEP found that the following textbooks are among those used by college faculty who teach the equivalent course. You might purchase one or more of these online or at your local college bookstore.
These resources, compiled by the CLEP test development committee and staff members, may help you study for your exam. However, none of these sources are designed specifically to provide preparation for a CLEP exam. The College Board has no control over their content and cannot vouch for accuracy.
