About The Book

Updated to reflect the most recent exams, this manual explains the structure of writing proficiency exams given to college students in California.

Students in the State University System must pass a writing proficiency exam as a prerequisite for receiving a bachelor's degree. The book reviews different essay types, instructs on writing an impromptu essay, explains how essays are scored, and advises on avoiding the mistakes that result in failed tests. Also included are representative essays, advice to ESL students, and three model tests that reflect California writing proficiency standards. Both model tests consist of an essay question and a set of multiple-choice questions.
