In addition to the multiple-choice questions required of the Reading, Mathematics, and Writing subtests, additional writing assignments are requred.
The Writing subtest includes two sentence correction assignments and one constructed response assignment.
The constructed-response assignment, or essay, presents a special problem in preparing for the official test. You will not know the subjects of your essays. Your best preparation is to write 500-600 words on a variety of subjects. You will begin to get an idea of the required length and the amount of time needed to complete them. If possible, have someone else read some of your essays and make comments on them.
At the conclusion of the Writing section of this program, you will be given an opportunity to submit a composition for review. Take advantage of this opportunity. Remember, the best way to learn to write is by writing!
