The language arts section is divided into a reading and writing test. The reading test has 40 multiple-choice questions on fiction and non-fiction passages. In the fiction section, you can expect a question from prose fiction before 1920, prose fiction from between 1920 and 1960, and prose fiction for the period after 1960. You can also expect poetry and drama questions. In the non-fiction section, you can expect questions from non-fiction prose, workplace and community documents, and critical reviews of the performing or visual arts.
The writing test consists of two parts. The first section of the exam has 50 multiple-choice questions in mechanics, organization, sentence structure, and usage. The second section of the writing test is an assigned essay on a familiar topic.
In the social studies section, you will have to answer 50 multiple-choice questions from four content areas. These areas are geography, history, civics and government, and economics.
