Precis Writing :
Précis writing is a very important and useful form of exercise in writing a composition. It helps the writer to gain good knowledge and skill of the language. We can measure
the language ability of a person through this exercise.
What is a précis? A précis is a summary. It is the gist or main theme of a passage written in a few words as possible. It should be clear, accurate, succinct and complete. It should
contain all important facts off the passage.
It is also called epitome (summary). It is a Greek word EPI means UPON and TEMNO means TO CUT. It is necessary to bear in mind that what is required is not a mere disconnected list of the important points in the original. An abridgment of the original
should be a piece of good, readable and continuous prose.
