Can you schedule exams any date or are there specific dates? I couldn't find any on the CLEP site.

It is sort of like taking the CBT exams with Prometric. You register for the exam on the CLEP site. Then you call the testing center where you plan to take it and schedule an appointment. I took a CLEP exam at a community college so some dates are blocked off because it is closed. I.E. Spring break, Winter break, etc.

Are the ADCD Econ practice exams in the ultimate review packet close to the real thing? I didn't bother getting the cracking the AP book and have just been using his videos + ultimate review packet.

Yeah, they are very similar. I did the review packet (1/2 was just copying what he had in his filled out version), watched the 5-6 summary videos, did the practice exams for each, and did the practice exam for micro and macro from the official study guide 2017 that I borrowed from the library. Got 75/80 on micro and 72/80 on macro, only needed a 53 for VEE credit.

Yeah, just got out of the micro exam and made a 78 without even touching the official study guide. ACDC econ is awesome. Gonna sign up for macro at the end of next week.

When finalizing your order for CLEP exam registration. Do I send the scores to SOA with code 3567?

I believe so. When you search Society of Actuaries, they have their address in IL pop up.

You can always go back and change who to send your scores to before you take your exam, as long as the ticket you print up is updated before hand.
