The GED Language Arts, Writing Exam is composed of two parts: a multiple choice test and a written essay. You have to pass both parts to pass the writing exam. Don't let that get you worried—the good news is that preparing for one part helps you to prepare for the other. And of course, the more you practice the better your score will likely be on both parts of the exam.
The previous chapters have provided you with the core writing information you will need to succeed on the GED Language Arts, Writing Exam. In this chapter, we will briefly review what you have learned. The topics covered include:
- sentence structure
- writing an effective essay
In addition to reviewing what you've learned so far, we will also go over some new GED tips and strategies. Together with the information provided in the last six chapters, these proven tools for exam success will help you prepare for and excel on test day.
Sentence structure basically refers to the order and use of words in sentences. The simple sentence He eats a burger is written with good structure; all the words are in order and the sentence makes sense. The sentence A he burger eats contains the same words, but does not display good structure.
Sentence structure questions on the GED will be a little more difficult than the previous example, but they will be based on the same idea: that there are rules in English which govern where words should be placed in a sentence and how they are used. It's important for you to know what these rules are. The following rules are likely to pop up on part I of the GED Writing Exam.
