The first SAT guide for students with learning disabilities.

For the growing number of students with learning disabilities who take the SAT each year, studying for the test is even more grueling than it is for traditional students. There is nothing on the market to prepare them for the SAT, and traditional manuals are inadequate both in content and presentation. LD SAT Study Guide is the first commercially available SAT preparation manual that prepares students with disabilities in general, and devotes specific attention and instruction to the more common disabilities, including dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, nonverbal learning disabilities, math disabilities, and visual or auditory processing disorders.

As a free supplement to the book, readers will have access to a companion website that enables them to take several practice tests and receive subject-specific feedback that pinpoints their strengths and weaknesses. Students can then focus their preparation accordingly to maximize their overall SAT score.
