Ask the NINJAs – BEC Written Communications

Dear NINJAs,

How can I prepare for the Written Communications part of BEC? ~Vana



Dear Vana,

We NINJAs are big fans of Written Communications.

If Written Communications had a page, we would Like them on Facebook.

You see, Written Communications saved our six on more than one occasion when the Written Communications were part of REG, AUD, and FAR.

Here's what you need to know about knocking out a Written Communication or two.

First: You need to understand the concepts. If you don't understand Price Elasticity of Demand, then you can't write about it and drop keywords. Study up on some Econ with a Free Chapter of Econ NINJA Notes

Second: You need a thesis statement, three supporting points, and a conclusion.

Third: Your best bet to get stronger on Written Communications is to write one out and then post it in the Another71 Forum and ask people for tips and feedback.
