EXP is short for Experience Points. These points are attained by defeating monsters and are used to Level up when a certain number of them are earned in this way. When the player levels up, the number of experience points needed to reach the next level is increased polynomially over the needed amount for the previous level. Most of the time, that amount of EXP Points to reach is displayed to the player.
Experience points lose their purpose after the player reaches the level of 99.
Experience points were introduced to the series in Castlevania II: Simon's Quest for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and weren't used again until Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the Sony Playstation (PSX).
In the Lords of Shadows series, Experience Points mainly act as the currency, that can be used to gain skills purchasable in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. In these games, the player can obtain EXP by killing enemies as well as destroying environmental objects. EXP points are also acquired when the player levels up after gaining sufficient Experience Points in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate.

Experience Points are used to acquire combat skills, relics and other valuable items that you will find on your adventure. The number under Dracula's health bar indicates the number of Experience Points available to be spent.
