If you’re looking for analogies practice, you may not need it. While the SAT, ACT, and GRE all used to have sections devoted to analogies (cat is to dog as …. Well, you get the idea), all tests have been revamped to exclude this section. Rather, the test may utilize reading excerpts that contain analogies or may have writing prompts that can be best answered with analogies. Regardless, you can get the practice you need for any and all tests with Nova Press’s test prep books.
For each test, a section (or sometimes an entire book) is devoted to the verbal and writing requirements. Whether you need to build your vocabulary, review grammar and/or punctuation rules, or develop your writing style, we have steps you can take to improve your score. The writing sections contain prompts, some with sample responses while others are for you to practice your writing. Rubrics are included so you can evaluate your own writing based on the same criteria the test-graders will use.
The reading sections contain many sample excerpts and questions. The beginning ones include explanations on how to arrive at the correct answers. Later excerpts and questions are left for you to figure out on your own, though the answers are given in a later section for your reference.
Don’t stress about analogies prep! Instead, work towards developing your own writing style and incorporating analogies. Or work on recognizing the meaning of analogies in reading excerpts. Either way, work with Nova Press to achieve your best.
