Barrons Practice Test 1

Finally, I finished. =]

These are part one of the questions and answers you need to know for mrs. Boland's exam.

Her unit TEST, however, will be on the chapter 4 and 5 questions in this and the other practice test.

And also, instead of memorizing every punctuation mark and capitalization, when you are learning the words go to configuration and check off all the boxes so it doesn't pick up any mistakes in punctuation, capitalization, etc.

Happy studying! <3 Emma
