Barron's SAT and ACT Grammar Workbook Fourth Edition
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
