Some potential CPAs get a little bit frightened when they learn that they'll be expected to actually write during the CPA Exam. But, there's nothing to be afraid of. You don't have to be an English professor to score points on the written communication tasks.
Currently, all CPA Exam sections except for BEC include written communications tasks. These tasks test the candidate's ability to construct professional business documents, and are generally included as part of a simulation. To earn points for a written communications question, candidates must read a description of a situation or scenario, and must write a document that relates or responds to that scenario. The document type will be specified in the question. For example, the question may request the candidate to write a memo or letter to a hypothetical client. This document is formally called a "constructed response."
