The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT is very different from getting straight As in school. TPR doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about reading, writing, and grammar--only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the SAT verbal sections. "There's a big difference." In SAT Verbal Workout, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers.
This will be accomplished by teaching students to:
Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool them
Solve SAT analogies when test takers not sure what all the words mean
Tackle verbal problems by using clues in the questions
Ace the critical reading questions by targeting the main ideas in the passages
*This book includes flashcards of the words that most often appear on the SAT, plus more than 200 practice exercises. All of TPR's sample test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual SAT, and every solution is fully explained.
