Our TSI Texas Success Initiative Reading and Writing Study Guide covers all of the reading and writing skills assessed on the actual TSI assessment.

This study guide contains six practice tests with answers and in-depth explanations.

When you study the explanations for the answers to each question, you will learn useful exam strategies and the pitfalls to avoid when taking the actual TSI test.
