This preparation program will lead you through a review of basic grammar and the mechanics of writing, focusing on the 5-paragraph essay and the development of the responsive essay.&#160; Practice with VTEL type questions and scoring rubrics will offer test takers an opportunity to become familiar with the process and gain confidence in the ability to do well on the VTEL.&#160; In addition participants will have the opportunity to reduce technology phobia during the three prep sessions since the test is now administered on computer.<br /> </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">&#160;</span></p> <p> <meta name="Title" content=""> <meta name="Keywords" content=""> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
