If you previously took Freshman Composition before the test changed it's name, yes you can take a different CLEP test. If you took English Composition, you can take a different CLEP test.
These tests have now been replaced by College Composition and College Composition Modular, both of which can be taken with or without the essay (depending on your school). If you take College Composition and didn't pass, you can still take the other test. The limits on retaking failed tests are these:
First, you can only retake a failed test after a six month waiting period. This is supposed to discourage people from just walking into a test without studying.
The second rule really only applies to your school. For example, you can take any amount of CLEP tests that you wish. However, if you take the Biology CLEP test which counts for six credits and then take the Chemistry test, your school will probably not allow credit for each one. There is a way around this. You will want to take the individual tests, not the "survey" or comprehensive tests.
Here is another example, if you take the Social Sciences and History test you will receive only six credits. If you take the Psychology, Sociology, Educational Psychology, U.S. History 1, etc., you will receive three credit hours for each test passed. So if you need a lot of credits, you may also need to make a strategy.
You can get started right now by choosing your study area on the left.
