Preparing for standardized testing can be dreadful business. The high-stakes of the SAT test can set our
student’s anxiety level through the roof.
That’s why I really liked this two DVD set. The fresh faces of the enthusiastic
presenters with their test-taking tips and strategies will set your student’s
mind at ease while they learn important tactics.
The New SAT Math reviews key points of arithmetic, algebra and
geometry. A series of quick quizzes are
built into the presentation to check understanding. Even the non-math-inclined will gain
confidence from the clear teaching of some tough concepts.
The Critical Reading and Writing disc teaches some powerful strategies,
such as the Brain Power Method, the “Prove” technique, and compass words. Students are taught to “chart” lengthy
passages on reading sections. Vocabulary
tips are given and the new SAT essay is tackled. Clear steps are given to ace this new,
important test section.
Although the potential SAT test-taker should also do some full-length
practice tests, these discs are a wonderful addition to your test-preparation
arsenal. From Goldhill entertainment. Two DVDs, approximately 100 minutes
