If students don't have a solid command of critical reading skills by the time they get to the SAT and ACT, they're already behind. Unfortunately, many students don't start trying to shore up these skills until they're about to take the exams, to the detriment of their scores and their own frustration. Are You Ready for the SAT and ACT? provides forward-thinking junior high students and their parents with the extra boost they need to be fully prepared for these exams before they start traditional test prep during high school. This book focuses on words-in-context as a core skill-building reading component, which directly addresses the layered analytical thinking that the New/Redesigned SAT will require (and the ACT already does).
