Preview copies of my and Larry Krieger’s SAT vocab book will soon be available

Update: As it turns out, Larry and I are making much faster progress than expected on our new SAT vocabulary book. In fact, we’re hoping to have a full draft completed by the end of this week. We were originally aiming to make the book available in time for the May SAT, but we’re far enough along to be able to offer a beta version for March. (I think this is the first writing project I’ve ever been involved with that finished ahead of schedule!) 

If you’re signed up for that exam and interested in purchasing a pre-publication copy, please email thecriticalreader1@gmail.com so that we know how many copies to have printed, and we’ll keep you updated as details become available. Cost is tbd, but will most likely be around $15.

The book covers essential vocabulary for the multiple-choice Writing section (commonly confused words, transition words) and Reading section (vocabulary in context, key passage-based vocabulary); it also features a bonus chapter with tips for writing the new Essay. Larry’s been testing the material out with his students throughout the process, and they’ve given it very high marks!
