Over the last few weeks, I’ve started to get inquiries about when I’ll be releasing my new books for the redesigned (P)SAT. Most likely, the final versions will not be ready until sometime this summer; however, I will do my best to make beta versions available in the late spring, probably May.
The books that will be revised are as follows:
- The Ultimate Guide to SAT® Grammar
- The Ultimate Guide to SAT® Grammar Workbook, most likely with eight complete Writing tests
- The Critical Reader
Unfortunately, the College Board has been extremely slow to release materials for the new exam. While I have begun revisions based on the limited sample questions they have made available thus far, my primary concern — as always — is accuracy rather than speed or quantity, and there is simply no way for me to obtain a solid understanding of the new test’s nuances without having a number of exams to study closely.
Because the new Official Guide is not scheduled for release until the end of June, and I have no means of obtaining multiple full exams sooner — there is no way for me to create publishable materials before that time. In the meantime, however, I am using the information I do have to rewrite as much as I can, hopefully leaving me with only a handful of gaps to plug with then the Official Guide is released. There is of course a chance that I will need to obtain reprint rights for new passages, in which case the final version of the Reading book may be delayed.
I will continue to post updates as I get a better idea of when my new books will become available.
