Accuplacer Reading and English Preparation

The Accuplacer English placement test has two parts: Sentence Skills and Reading Comprehension. 


Each part consists of 20 questions.  The test is not timed, but may take approximately one hour. The Sentence Skills test measures your ability to correct sentences by substituting a word or phrase underlined in the sentence. It will also ask you to specifically rewrite sentences without changing the meaning. Reading Comprehension measures your analytical and comprehensive reading skills and your ability to apply what you have read.
