THE BEST PRACTICE PLUS COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGIES FOR HIGHER SCORES ON THE SAT WRITING SECTION

For more than 30 years, Dr. Gary Gruber has been the leading authority on the SAT and test preparation. Now, the Gruber Method delves deeper into SAT prep, providing in-depth analysis and strategies for the individual writing section of the test.

Memorizing vocabulary words and grammar rules is not the best way to get the top score on the SAT writing test. You need to know the critical reading and sentence completion strategies that will show you how to think about questions instead of trying to solve each one individually. To score well on the essay, you need to write to the SAT essay scoring guide-and the critical thinking exercises and strategies in Gruber's Complete SAT Writing Workbook will do just that, helping you on your way to a perfect score.
