GED: How to Prepare for the High School Equivalency Examination-TEST 1, The Writing Skills Test.
Fiddler, Kathryn
This book is designed to help individuals prepare for the Writing Skills Test, which is the first of five tests that make up the General Educational Development (GED) Test battery. The introduction offers a detailed description of the content, format, and scoring of the GED test, focusing on the Writing Skills Test, and a descriptive outline of the major elements of the Regnery GED program. A writing skills inventory contains questions similar to those on the actual GED test. Answers and explanations of the inventory, as well as a writing skills evaluation chart, are included in this section. The grammar and usage section examines different kinds of sentences, uses of problems with nouns, problems with verbs, subject and verb agreement, pronouns, adjectives and adverbs, sentence structure, punctuation, capitalization, style and diction, logic and organization, and spelling. Review tests and evaluation charts are included for all aspects of grammar and usage. (LL)
