Precision-edited and classroom-tested you will find tips and tricks on subject-verb agreement, parallelism, redundancy, and idiomatic expressions. These tips have guided numerous IES students to success on the old SAT and are just as relevant to the new version. Yet new sectionson coherence, style, and using visual resourceswill give you everything you need to approach the questions that are unique to the passage-based New SAT. To break the bad habits formed in everyday speech and undisciplined writing, and to truly grasp all question types on the New SAT Language and Writing, you need this book. Once you have completed the lessons, exercise your new knowledge using the ten practice testsall based on the newest released tests from the College Board itself. We at IES have confidence that you can control the New SAT.
