Welcome to 501 Sentence Completion Questions! This book
is designed to help you prepare for the verbal and reading sections of
many assessment and entrance exams. By completing the 501 sample
items offered here and by studying their answer explanations, you will
develop the skills necessary to tackle each type of sentence completion
question. You will also improve your vocabulary and your process of
Sentence completions test your ability to use the information
found in complex, but incomplete, sentences in order to correctly
complete the sentences. Sentence completions test two separate
aspects of your verbal skills: your vocabulary and your ability to fol-
low the internal logic of sentences. These sentences are often quite
complex. Fortunately, there are some strategies that will greatly
increase your score on these questions. Each of these questions has
one blank (or, on some tests, two blanks) within a single sentence.
Often the sentences are long and difficult to follow, but with practice
you can learn to master them.
