Hi everyone. I have recently become motivated again in going back to school and trying to get my degree in Construction Management. This is going to sound silly- but I already took the English Composition class and had a high B/Low A the whole way through up until time for the final, which was supposed to be an 8 page essay or so. Anyway, I got lazy and stopped going so I failed the class. I had a C or a B in high school for honors english one semester.. I bought the CollegeBoard practice test for English Composition with only studying 3 categories on IC one-time around and averaged an 82% on that. I'm fairly confident with everything I have seen on IC and the practice test. The "Basic Grammar" sections on IC are not challenging at all. But I really feel like there is more I have to know. I am a fairly good 5-paragraph essay writer. Is there anything else I should look at or any other practice tests you might recommend I take before I take the real deal? I need a 58 on the English Comp w/Essay for my school to accept it. Regardless of whether I pass or fail, I plan on studying my ass off for many CLEP/DANTES exams this summer and next, while resuming normal college courses this coming fall/spring.
Edit: Also, how many hours do you all put toward studying a subject you plan to test for CLEP or DANTES? Assuming its for a topic you don't know much, or anything, about. I would say I studied for six to eight hours on this one but like I said, I already took the class and English comes easy for me.
