Verbal Skills For The SAT

SAT/ACT PREP VERBAL

Both the ACT and the SAT contain verbal and math question types. SAT/ACT Preparation Part I will give you all the information you need to do well on the verbal questions of the ACT and the new SAT. The ACT verbal sections are called the Reading Test, the English Test, and the Science Test. The Reading Test and the English Test assess your knowledge of English usage, grammar, and reading comprehension.

Beginning March 2016, the SAT verbal questions also changed. The lessons in this course will prepare you for those changes. The new verbal sections are called Writing and Language and Reading. The Reading section consists of Information & Ideas, Rhetoric, and Synthesis questions based on reading passages and quantitative information.

The SAT also contains a Writing and Language section, which includes multiple-choice questions about rhetoric, grammar, and English usage. The essay on the SAT is now optional and administered in its own section. This course will prepare you to write the type of essays that grading officials are looking for and will provide you with a grammar and usage.

Both instructor-led and self-paced options available.
