While there may not be SAT reading books out there, Nova Press has a book to help you study for it! Our SAT Prep Course gives you all of the materials you need to prepare for taking the test.
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.
If you’re looking for SAT prep materials, you’ve come to the right place. Nova Press’s SAT Prep Course has everything you need to master the SAT.
