This discipline-specific New SAT Grammar book features ten full Writing and Language practice tests, along with intensive, memorable lessons that show students how to deal with the nuances and intricacies of the New SAT. Study of essential grammar rules and practice with the most accurate, most relevant material are the essentials of success on the New 2016 SAT. Like its predecessor, the re-designed SAT tests the fundamentals of verb usage, sentence construction, comparison, and English diction. But the new test has also shifted emphasis, and shifted radically: punctuation, paragraph coordination, and uses of visual evidence will pose new challenges. It will be necessary to break bad writing habits, and to leave behind awkward or incorrect colloquial expressions, more aggressively than ever before. 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.

Often, students proclaim, "That was so easy" about a grammar section and then sit in disbelief when they later find out that they actually got a lot of the problems wrong. The reason for a lot of these mistakes is over reliance on the way a sentence sounds and old grammar habits stemming from colloquial speech. This is because the way we have learned to speak English is not exactly the way we are expected to write it. For this, we need rules. Contrary to popular belief, grammar rules don't need to be complicated. We can learn them through basic visual clues. On the SAT(r) there are 12 such rules. This book explains each type by presenting the student with visual clues and abundant practice exercises. After completing this book, you will say with confidence, "That was so easy."

This book analyzes the errors most commonly made in spoken and written English and presents them in a systematic, down-to-earth manner. It does not dictate grammar to the reader; rather, it presents the guidelines for English usage currently being observed by the most competent and careful speakers and writers. The most troublesome words and phrases—as well as grammatical terms—are listed alphabetically within 18 subject areas to enable the reader to check quickly on questions of usage. In each case, illustrative examples are given, and the guiding principle is stated for the reader to follow in avoiding the mistake and others similar to it. An extensive index for additional ease of reference helps make this book a handy tool for the modern reader who realizes that mere knowledge is no longer sufficient—that one must be able to express his knowledge clearly, forcefully, and correctly.

PWN is back, and better than ever. The PWN the SAT Math Guide was created to help ambitious, highly motivated kids maximize their SAT math scores. Do you crave a higher score? Are you willing to do a little hard work to achieve it? Good. I knew I liked you. Read this book from beginning to end, with a pencil in hand and a calculator and an Official SAT Study Guide by your side. When you’re done, you’ll be able to approach the SAT with confidence—very few questions will surprise you, and even fewer will be able to withstand your withering attacks. Stand tall, intrepid student. Destiny awaits. Updated for the New SAT This new edition of the Math Guide has been updated, rather painstakingly, to reflect the realities of the new SAT coming March 2016. This book was not rushed to market to take advantage of interest in the new exam. I took my time, and hopefully I got it right. Chapters are broken into five major sections: Techniques, Heart of Algebra, Passport to Advanced Math, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Additional Topics in Math. Each chapter concludes with a reference list of similar questions from official practice tests. Practice questions are designated as either “Calculator” or “No calculator.” Students will be forbidden from using their calculators for one whole section of the new SAT. Emphasis is placed on nimbleness—the ability to approach problems in multiple ways to find the one that works best. Calculator solutions and shortcuts are provided where appropriate. Join me online Readers of this book are encouraged to register as Math Guide Owners at the PWN the SAT website. There will be video solutions and other bonus content there. Signing up there will also give me a way to get in touch with you if I make book updates. See details at http://mathguide.pwnthesat.com.
