Hello. I just took subsection 1 today and passed. The questions in all of the test prep materials were helpful but did not exactly match the actual test. The version I got today was heavy on close reading; there was very little having to do with lit eras. My suggestion is to still study all the areas but maybe with less emphasis on eras and make sure that you can read critically, quickly. I also suggest taking section 3 after 1 bc the studying for 1 will help with the analysis needed in 3. I did not major in English. Good luck!
