New CUNY ACT Writing (CATW) Practice Exercise 1

The CATW (CUNY Assessment Test In Writing) has been in place since the Fall Semester 2010 (replacing the old CUNY ACT Writing Exam). The main focus of the new CATW is writing an essay in response to a short reading. You have 90 minutes to read the passage and write the essay. You may find some CATW practice exams and additional information at:

Hello Mr. Amadeo Constanzo,

Well, I was surfing the net and trying to find some tips and clues about the CATW test which i will be taking tomorrow, or technically today at 4:40PM, until I found your blog. It was very helpful to me ans so was the article. I was just wondering maybe you could contact me at, I would like to ask you a couple of questions.

Thank you very much. Regards,
Abdul-Hafez, Shawkat.
