The new Critical Reader site is coming!

I am excited to announce that my website redesign is in its final stages. 

In order to save my designer the trouble of having to transfer content over to the development site piece by piece, I’ve agreed to refrain from adding new content, including blog posts, while he works. Expected launch date is somewhere between May 15th and 25th. I’ve been granted permission (!) to post this here, but otherwise, I’ll start back up again after the new site is live. 

To everyone who took my survey and offered feedback about your experiences with the website, thank you again. The information you provided gave me and my designers an enormous amount of insight in terms of understanding the needs and concerns of students, parents, and tutors involved in the test-prep process. I can’t stress enough how helpful your comments were. 

Also, a couple of announcements: 

I am currently in the process of updating my SAT books, with the goal of releasing the fourth edition of The Ultimate Guide to SAT Grammar sometime in June (date TBA), and third edition of The Critical Reader later this summer (I’ll post updates as I get a better sense of when that might be). If you are planning to register for the new August SAT and want to get started studying sooner rather than later, however, the current versions of the books will serve you perfectly well. 

In addition, my GRE vocabulary book will be available sometime this summer as well. Again, I’ll post updates as I get a better idea of the release date. Beta copies are still available in the meantime — contact us if interested. 

And a question: 

When the old SAT was retired, I assumed that sales of the old editions of my SAT books would stop entirely, but oddly enough, that hasn’t been the case. I’m assuming some of these purchases are made by people who don’t realize newer editions are available (?), but if there are any readers of this blog who deliberately bought the old editions of my SAT books after the new test was implemented, would you mind sending a brief message explaining how you used them? I’m trying to recycle as much material as possible, and if these books serve a purpose that I haven’t thought of, I’d really like to know. Thanks!
