Hi there. If you've already completed your preceding course, the Written Communication block should have been automatically "unlocked" to you already - you may want to contact the Penn Foster Help Center if it hasn't been. Are you able to access the study guide online already? There is a course textbook, "Word Power Made Easy" by Norman Lewis (ISBN-13: 978-0-671-74190-7) so if that hasn't been shipped yet, that's possibly why the course exams remain locked - to ensure you don't attempt the exams before you have all the study material. That's a nuisance, because you don't actually *need* the Norman Lewis book until the second half of the course for the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth exams. My teen took this course about a year ago, before the immediate exam retake option was introduced. At that point the first, second and third exams were multiple-choice; the fourth required an essay on a subject of your own choice, applying the techniques discussed in the first three sections of the study guide; and the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth were multiple choice and based upon the vocabulary covered in the Norman Lewis book. I can't say for absolute certain, but I imagine you'd be able to retake any or all of the multiple choice exams to bring your grade up if necessary; but the essay is probably a once-only thing unless you fail it outright. Best of luck with Written Communication - it's a fun course, especially the second half!
