The Essays
The two Improving Paragraphs essays are not long. Both essays usually contain three paragraphs. The test writers want the essays to seem like drafts of student essays. This means that the essays will not be difficult to read. For the most part, the essays use simple sentence construction and a straightforward prose style. This simplicity is good, because it means you won’t have to waste a lot of time poring over the essays. The questions after the essay will focus on the errors.
