How long does that process normally take? I am sitting for Exam 6 in May and want to get ACAS in time for 2019 annual meeting (I've already passed all the other exams except MAS-I and am waiting for my MAS-I results, expecting a pass).

I studied Macro for an hour or two a day for less than a week. Used ACDC videos and ultimate review packet (both are excellent, and I usually prefer written materials). Scored 75/80 today on CLEP. Micro CLEP on Thursday.

Follow-up to this: used ACDC for micro, studied Tuesday and Wednesday nights, took 1 practice exam this morning, passed CLEP this afternoon with 78/80! On to Exam 6.

For everyone taking the CLEP exam, where did you take it at? Does it have to be through prometric like the other exams?

No. You typically arrange to take it at a local university.
