Part I WritingNothing Succeeds Without a Strong Will Nothing runs
smoothly in our life. To achieve things successfully, a strong will is
essential. Life is like a Marathon. Many people can’t get to the
terminal. This is not because they are lack of vitality but because
their will of success is not strong enough. To take quitting smoking as
an example, some regard it as a piece of cake. They make up their minds
to quit it in the morning, but in the evening they feel that the smell
of cigarettes is tempting. Their throats are sore, their mouths are
thirsty, and their hands are shaking. After the painful mental struggle,
they tell themselves that “One cigarette is enough. Just take one, and
the next day I will quit it.” By doing this, they surrender to their
weak will. In the end, they have quitted smoking “a hundred times”, but
in no time they succeed. Just like quitting smoking, nothing succeeds
without a strong will. To be successful in one’s life, a strong will
means that you know where you go and you will persist on the road you
choose. Undoubtedly success belongs to those who overcome their weak
will and who hang in there until the last minute.Nothing Succeeds
Without a Strong Will As we have read from above, quitting-smoking seems
easy, but in reality it is rarely achieved. There is something provoking
and interesting in this paradox, just because sword does not wear the
stone as dripping water does. The ability to do something over and over
again in a short time may imply its easiness, but in a long run, a
lifetime maybe, things turn out to be quite the opposite. Also, as is
often the case, one may have obtained all the tools and opportunities to
achieve something, but in the end they still fail due to the will
shortage. So how could we avoid the dilemma? Here is the prime condition
of success: will and perseverance. Concentrate you energy, thought and
mind exclusively on the business in which you are engaged, hang on in
there and be patient, for, as Emerson put it, no one can cheat you out
of your ultimate success but yourself.


Part II Reading Comprehension (Skimming and Scanning)1.A) sticks to them
in their daily life第一题的答案就在全文第一句。关键词是not only…. But
also…. ,关键句是The key to integrity is consistency–not only setting
high personal standards for oneself (honesty, responsibility, respect
for others, fairness) but also living up to those standards each day.
这里的live up to 和 选项里的 stick to 属于同义替换。2.C) It is the basis
of mutual trust关键词是personal and professional,关键句是Trust is
essential in any important relationship, whether personal or
professional. Who can trust someone who is dishonest or unfair? Thus,
integrity must be one of our most important
goals.结合紧接着的问句,我们很容易锁定trust这个选项。3.A. To ensure we
make responsible choices.关键词是identify the risks,关键句是Making
ethical decisions is a critical part of avoiding future problems. We
must learn to recognize risks, because if we can’t see the risks we’re
taking, we can’t make responsible choices. 所以答案很明显是A。4.B. it is
claimed to be unintentional.关键词是misconduct,关键句是But the fact
that such a violation is “unintentional” does not excuse the misconduct.
和原文意义高度一致的,就是这个unintentional。因此答案是:B. it is
claimed to be unintentional.5.A. Avoid making excuses.关键词是fool
oneself,关键句是To avoid fooling yourself, watch out for excuses and
try this test这里的watch out for 和
选项里的avoid属于同义替换。所以答案是A。6.C. value immediate benefits
most.关键词是regret later,关键句是Those who take risks they later
regret usually focus on immediate benefits (“what’s in it for
me”)。很明显,选项 value immediate benefits most 是正确答案。这里的value
和 focus on 属于同义替换。7.A) pay more dearly关键词是get
caught,关键句是Those who don’t get caught pay an even higher price.
这里的higher price 和选项里的more dearly
属于同义替换。所以答案是A。8.steal a grade关键词:care about关键句:I’m
not interested in what you’re trying to teach; all I care about is
stealing a grade, regardless of the effect on others.”9.honesty and good
faith关键词是rely on,关键句是We must rely on the honesty and good faith
of others every day.10.the Watergate scandal关键词是political and
economic leaders,关键句是Watergate, have undermined the faith of many
Americans in the integrity of political and economic leaders and society
as a whole.

Section cCompound Dictation


Our lives are woven together. As much as I enjoy my own company, I no longer imagine I can get through
a single day much less all my life completely on my own. Even if I am on vacation in the mountains, I am eating food
someone else has grown, living in a house someone else has built,
wearing clothes someone else has sewn
from cloth woven by others, using electricity someone else is distributing to my
house. Evidence of interdependence is
everywhere; we are on this journey
together. As I was growing up, I remember being
carefully taught that independence not interdependence was
everything. “Make your own way”,” Stand on your own two feet” or
my mother’s favorite remark when I was face-to-face with consequences of
some action: Now that you’ve made your bed, lie on it. Total
independence is a dominant thing in our culture. I imagine that what my parents were trying to teach me
was to take responsibilities for my actions and my choices. But
the teaching was shaped by our cultural imagines. And instead, I grew up
believing that I was supposed to be totally independent and consequently
became very reluctant to ask for help. I would
do almost anything not to be a burden, and not require any help from
