American Literature

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 Literature course covers material that is taught in a college semester survey course that explores the prose and poetry written in the United States from colonial times to the present. The course primarily focuses on American literary works. The interpretation of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction prose is also covered. The successful student will have an understanding of the terms, forms, and literary concepts used by scholars to examine the literature of all genres.

American Literature

American literature is literature predominantly written or produced in English in the United States of America and its preceding colonies. Before the founding of the United States, the British colonies on the eastern coast of the present-day United States were heavily influenced by English literature. The American literary tradition thus began as part of the broader tradition of English literature. However, a small amount of literature exists in other immigrant languages and Native American tribes have a rich tradition of oral storytelling.* Wikipedia.org/wiki/American_literature

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 exam assumes the student has read widely in American literature and has an understanding of American literary periods and historical timeline.

The exam contains approximately 100 questions to be answered in 90 minutes. Some of these are pretest questions that will not be scored. The College Board provides the parameters for the exam which we have listed below.

*An optional essay section can be taken in addition to the multiple-choice test. SpeedyPrep prepares its subscribers for the question portion of the exam, but not the essay portion.
