The Principles of Advanced English Composition DANTES study guide covers everything that you would learn in a lower level English composition class. This covers all the basics in the creation of any composition. You’ll learn and need to identify different types of writing such as narrative, informative, argumentative, persuasive and think critically about how those styles best fit the unique situation. You’ll learn how to successfully create and defend logical arguments in your writing while providing sources and learning how to note that source material correctly. This is a great test to take, overlapping with the College Composition CLEP as well as the College Composition Modular CLEP test. If you have the ability to benefit from these three separate and distinct tests, we recommend that you take them all to get the most bang for your buck in college credit.
