This book brings together everything you need to know for the SAT writing section, from the simplest to the most advanced grammar rule. Unlike most other test prep books, this one is truly geared towards the student aiming for the perfect score. It leaves no stones unturned.

Inside, You'll Find:

  • Clear explanations of all the tested SAT grammar rules, from the simplest to the most obscure
  • Tons of examples to illustrate each question type and the different ways it can show up
  • Hundreds of drills and practice questions to help you master the concepts
  • The most common mistakes students make (so you don't make them)
  • Three practice tests
  • Fun illustrations

Changes from the 1st edition include:

  • Additional chapters on topics that have been added to the exam (faulty comparisons, pairs, singular plural noun inconsistency)
  • An overview of the present perfect and past perfect tenses (with additional exercise questions)
  • More tips, common traps, and examples in the "Topic, Conclusion, & Transition Sentences" chapter
  • A completely revised "Odds & Ends" chapter now with two exercises (now encompasses question mark errors, point of view errors, and more)
  • Removal of paragraph placement section and exercises (seemingly no longer tested)
  • Fleshed out "Data Interpretation" chapter with tips and examples
  • Removal of "Comparatives vs. Superlatives" chapter (not tested)
  • An even easier to understand section on Dashes and Colons
  • More strategies in the "Combining Sentences" chapter
  • Fixes for all known typos in the 1st edition
  • Improvements to the "Word Choice" chapter
  • More answer explanations to questions that students have frequently asked about
  • A handful of edits to the practice tests
