5 - Grammar and Mechanics



Overview - Information Section


In addition to the writing you will be doing based on what you read, there is also a grammar and mechanics (how sentences work together) section on the test.


This section is entirely multiple choice and asks questions about terms that you have probably seen in school already, such as punctuation and capitalization.

While itís hard to predict exactly which questions will show up on the test, if you know some strategies you will definitely be more prepared!

Sometimes the test will ask you to choose the best answer. This means that more than one multiple choice is at least partly right, but one is the best. If the instructions ask you to choose which answer is correct, that means there is only one right answer.
