American Government

This course can be used as a study resource, for professional development, or to earn college credit by passing a CLEP™ exam (multiple-choice examination).  Each college sets its own credit-granting policies for the exam, so check with your college admissions office, test center, or academic adviser before taking the test.  

The American Government course covers material that is usually taught in a college-level, one-semester introductory course. Knowledge gained in an American Government course covers the origins, development, structure, roles, and functions of American government. The framework and content of the constitution is studied along with federalism; the three branches of government which include bureaucracy; civil rights and liberties; political participation and behavior; and policy formation. Successful students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of the participatory process of the American political system. The relationship between state and local governments to the federal government is also covered.

American Government

The federal government of the United States (U.S. federal government) is the national government of the United States, a federal republic in North America, composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and several island possessions. The federal government is composed of three distinct branches: legislative, executive, and judicial, whose powers are vested by the U.S. Constitution in the Congress, the president, and the federal courts, respectively. The powers and duties of these branches are further defined by acts of Congress, including the creation of executive departments and courts inferior to the Supreme Court.* wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_government_of_the_United_States

Gain Confidence

Our flashcard system requires you to really learn the answers. If you have learned an answer to a question so you can type it in, then you will be able to choose it from a multiple-choice list. You don’t need to know the answers to the flashcard questions when you start using DSSTPrep…because our system will teach you the answers! After you type an answer to a question, the correct answer will appear, along with an explanation and sometimes a video. Read the answer and an explanation. You will encounter every question in your subject many times. With repeated study sessions, you will learn the correct answers.

Flexibility

DSSTPrep courses are completely self-paced. The average student has their subscription for three months. How long it will take you to earn 90% or more on your progress bar will depend on how often you study and how quickly you are able to learn your subject. As you go through your course, you will move more quickly through the material as you learn the answers. Some people hunker down and study hard over a few days or a week to complete their course and take their exams. It really will depend on your goals for completing your DSSTPrep course and how soon you want to take your DSST® exam.

The American Government exam contains approximately 100 questions to be answered in 90 minutes. Some of these are pretest questions that will not be scored.
