AIMS exams in several subjects must be passed by high school students in the state of Arizona as a prerequisite for graduation. This manual explains the Reading and Writing Exam's test format and describes its two sections. The exam's opening section focuses on the six traits of writing, and its second section concentrates on the two main approaches to reading comprehension: reading as literary art and as a source of information. This book offers extensive practice and review for both sections, and concludes with two full-length practice tests with answers and explanations.
