Although not updated to reflect the redesigned SAT, in these tutorials, students will get the chance to practice with tons of real, previously-unreleased SAT Reading and Writing problems provided by College Board. You’ll find exercises on three of the SAT Reading and Writing question types: sentence completion, identifying sentence errors, and improving sentences. Onward!
The Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section of the redesigned SAT embodies the College Board’s firm commitment to the idea that all students should be asked routinely to engage with texts worthy of close attention and careful analysis — works that explore challenging ideas, offer important insights, reveal new discoveries, and build deep knowledge in numerous disciplines. While this commitment is apparent throughout the whole exam — which calls on students to read and analyze rich texts in the fields of U.S. and world literature, history/social studies, and science and on career-related topics — nowhere is it more evident than in the Reading Test’s inclusion of U.S. founding documents and texts from the Great Global Conversation.
