Nova Press’s SAT Prep Course is the way to go when looking for SAT prep books. We give a thorough review of all of the math, reading, and writing topics that you’ll need to know. If you’re ready to get to work, Nova Press is ready to help.
The reading section focuses on a few main sub-categories: reading comprehension, sentence completion, critical reasoning, and vocabulary. The reading comprehension section debunks the myths about commonly recommended reading methods and then outlines some approaches that actually work. We help you learn how to recognize the six main types of questions asked on the test and then how to narrow down the answer choices to fit each question. We reinforce pivotal words that could change the entire meaning of the reading material, so you don’t get thrown by the wording. Finally, a concise method is outlined to help you achieve your best on the actual test. Practice reading material and questions are given in each section along with answers and explanations.
The writing section first clarifies the format of the test so you know exactly what to expect. We then review grammar rules and common errors, also looking at ways to vary sentence structure and to help you start to find your writing style. After a brief section on punctuation, we delve into the actual writing. There are many sample writing prompts along with guides on how to approach them to understand exactly what they’re asking you to write. The book includes a rubric so you can evaluate your own writing with the same criteria the test-graders use. We also outline several basic steps that you can use on test day to structure your essay before you start writing. Several examples of prompts along with possible responses are included for your evaluation, followed by practice prompts for you to practice your writing.
The math section reviews many different concepts. Each concept has a dedicated section with rules, examples, and practice problems for you to work through, followed by answers and explanations for you to correct your work. The end of the chapter contains a diagnostic math test, so you can determine whether you need to revisit any specific concept for further review.
The SAT can be a daunting test to prepare for if you don’t have the right materials to study with. Choose the Nova Press SAT Prep Course, instead of one of the other SAT Prep Books. Nova Press will make sure you have all of the information you need so you can work at your own pace and feel confident that you can succeed.
