Here’s the link to the practice test for the test-out exam for this course
The current catalog describes ENGL 1120 this way:
“An introduction to descriptive and prescriptive approaches to studying English grammar, this course functions as a prerequisite to ENGL 2030.”
More specifically, this course will help you gain factual knowledge by helping you recognize parts of speech and the most common syntactical patterns—the varied shapes that sentences can take. As you learn to understand the principles of analysis connected to taking a descriptive approach to grammar, you will also learn to make sense of the usage standards that govern academic writing. Finally, you will learn to apply your knowledge as a teacher and a writer as you learn to collaborate to teach and learn. As an alternative to fulfilling this prerequisite, you may take an exam over the material that the course covers. See the professor for details. You are encouraged to enroll in 1120 and 2030 during the same semester.
