The Critical Reader, 2nd Edition is tailored to the redesigned SAT. Like the previous version, this edition balances critical aspects of comprehension with SAT-specific strategies. While a significant amount of information from the first edition has been left intact, this edition also features extensive discussions of supporting evidence and infographic questions, along with numerous full-length passages that reflect the new test’s heavier focus on science and social science.

With the exception of those excerpted from historical documents, passages are taken from contemporary sources including The Economist and Harvard Business Review, and are closely matched to the style and level of the passages on the exams released thus far by the College Board.
