Nova Press wants to make sure you are fully prepared for SAT writing. Our SAT Prep Course, in whichever format you decide to get it, includes a detailed writing section that reviews everything you need to know for the writing section of the SAT.
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, like pronoun errors, subject-verb agreement, misplaced and redundant modifiers, faulty parallelism, and faulty verb tenses. Error identification isn’t the main point of writing, though, so we also look at ways to vary sentence structure, improve paragraph structure, and how to use idioms in order to help you start to find your own writing style.
Included in the book is a review of punctuation, just to make sure we’ve covered everything. Topics include commas, semicolons, colons, dashes, apostrophes, sentence fragments, and run-on sentences.
Finally, 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 begin writing. Several examples of prompts along with possible responses are included for your evaluation, followed by practice prompts for you to practice your writing.
Nova Press has the materials to help you be prepared for the SAT writing section. Whether you prefer a printed book, ebook, online course, software or an iPhone or iPad app, our SAT Prep course will help you be prepared on test day.
