I designed these presentations for students taking the now defunct writing section of the Florida College Basic Skills Exit Test—although I imagine that anyone preparing for a sentence-level test will benefit. The presentations adhere [almost always] to the item specifications for the FCBSET. They are short lessons [20 minutes or so] that introduce the skills but do not attempt to cover every scenario in a comprehensive or exhaustive way.

To view these presentations, you need a version of PowerPoint or this free viewer from Microsoft.
