ABOUT THIS COURSE

This course covers material that is usually taught in an introductory one-semester college course on macroeconomics. Our goal is to prepare you to pass the CLEP examination and obtain college credit for free.

The CLEP examination places a major emphasis on understanding principles of economics that apply to an economy as a whole, particularly the general price level, output and income, and interrelations among sectors of the economy.

It also highlights the determinants of aggregate demand and aggregate supply, and on monetary and fiscal policy tools that can be used to achieve particular policy objectives.

“Principles of Macroeconomics” is a completely self-paced course.  It has no prerequisites and it is offered entirely for free.

CLEP Exam

This course is designed to prepare you for the CLEP Principles of Macroeconomics exam and cover other related topics as well.
