Members of the CUNY community are invited to attend the unveiling of a new interactive tutorial CD-ROM, ‘Guide to the CUNY Proficiency Exam’, in the Information and Technology Building’s Newman Conference Center (151 East 25th Street) on Monday, March 7. The event begins at 5:30 PM, and refreshments will be served.

The tutorial prepares students to take the university-wide Proficiency Exam (CPE), consisting of a two-hour Analytic Reading and Writing section and a one-hour Analyzing and Integrating Materials from Graphs and Text test. Students are required to take the test between registering for their forty-fifth credit and completing their sixtieth credit. All CUNY students must pass the CPE before graduating from a community college or advancing to their junior year in a senior college.

A collaborative project between the CPE Committee, The Office of Advisement and Orientation, The Student Academic Consulting Center, and the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute, the CD-ROM is the latest in a series of interactive tutorials the college has produced in conjunction with Kognito Solutions LLC, a company that is both owned and managed by Baruch alumni.
