General Preparation for the Exam Focus on paraphrasing, summarizing, synthesizing, and quoting skills Note differences between long and short quotation formatting Look again at argumentative essay organization Look again at the argumentative thesis statement Look again at the language of argumentation Look again at arguments, counterarguments and rebuttals Look again at APA citation
Some sound advice Take the exam seriously…without a good grade in the exam you won’t get your A…or even your B! Take advice on timing seriously…many COULD NOT FINISH this exam! Prepare for this exam…many students think they can just “wing it”! Prepare the sort of language you need for argumentation. Focus on the revision areas mentioned earlier.
