Product Description:

Do you need to strengthen your grammar skills before taking those all-important college entrance exams? If so, you've come to the right place. Barron's Grammar Workbook for the SAT, ACT, and More combines a detailed grammar review with standardized test questions to help students learn, sharpen, and practice grammar skills that are tested on the SAT and ACT. The book is divided into three sections. The first part of the book is called "Grammar Basics: An Orientation." It provides a substantive review of grammar terms (ie. noun, adverb, conjunction) with plenty of examples and short exercises. A chapter on sentences (ie. clauses, sentence structure, mechanics) is included as well. Part Two consists of grammar tests. It begins with a chapter on grammar pitfalls, followed by a chapter devoted to SAT grammar questions, an ACT grammar questions chapter, and a chapter covering grammar tests applicable to high school exit exams. These chapters contain plentiful examples of the types of multiple-choice questions found on these standardized tests, with detailed explanations. Part Three is called "Essay Writing on the SAT and ACT." It provides tips for writing an effective essay in the time allotted and includes sample SAT and Act Writing Test topics. Information on scoring the essays is included as well. Index included. 250 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

Publisher Description:

A solid command of English grammar is a prerequisite for success when students take the SAT and/or ACT. This workbook presents a detailed grammar review with dozens of practice quizzes and exercises to sharpen students' skills. It begins with an explanation of grammatical terms and their functions. It then introduces the 24 most common grammar and usage questions that appear on the SAT and ACT and how to answer them. Prominent among them are questions on agreement between subject and verb, use of pronouns, verb forms, parallel structure, and diction. A final chapter focuses on advice and instruction for writing error-free SAT and ACT essays. This workbook is filled with sample questions exactly like those found on both the SAT and ACT, and comes with fully explained answers.

These materials are also comprehensive in scope but are supplemental as opposed to more complete programs.
