All of the major tests out there (SAT, ACT, MCAT, GMAT, LSAT, GRE) have something in common: they all have some kind of verbal reasoning section. Yes, there is the section titled “Verbal Reasoning,” but there is also untitled “verbal reasoning.” Every section and question on the exams test your understanding of vocabulary, pivotal words, and grammar, in addition to knowledge. If you don’t understand the question, or the context in which it’s asked, you’ll get the answer wrong. But don’t freak out! Whatever untitled verbal reasoning test you’re studying for, Nova Press has a book to help you be prepared!
Nova Press wants to make sure you know what to expect on test day. The books are arranged to help you know the format of the test, key aspects you will be tested, as well as the more minute details (like examples of how the questions are worded). Spend time working through the verbal reasoning section of every book and be prepared for whatever the test-writers decide to throw out you. We have steps outlined to help you know how to identify types of questions in the reading comprehension sections, as well as full-length practice reading samples. We cover the basics of grammar and punctuation, and we reinforce your understanding of pivotal words and how they effect the meaning of a sentence. The books devoted to tests which include a vocabulary section (i.e. SAT, ACT, and the GRE) break down the possible words into “most likely” and “other possibilities” so that you can decide how much time to devote to which list.
Working through these “Verbal Reasoning” sections can help you on more than that section of a test. By studying the vocabulary, you are more likely to get questions right because you’re more likely to know all of the words in the question and all of the words in the possible answers. By reviewing grammar and punctuation in addition vocabulary, you can improve your writing and work to develop your writing style. The more exposure you have to different types of writing, the more prepared you’ll be for whatever is thrown at you on test day.
Rely on Nova Press to help you prepare. Any of our test prep courses will help you feel ready on test day if you are willing to put in the work. It’s not just about the “Verbal Reasoning” sections … The whole test can be an untitled verbal reasoning test. Improve your skills with Nova Press.
