Why do so many smart students struggle with the verbal sections of the SAT? There are several reasons, from the tight time constraints of the exam to the challenging language featured in so many of the passages.

“Before, I could never figure out how to tell right answers from the wrong ones. I could usually get Reading question down to two choices, but then I would sit there, unsure which one to pick. I used to lose so much time in SAT Reading, going back-and-forth between answer choices. Now I know how to spot when an answer seems to be right but is really a ‘trap.’ Thank you. I feel much more confident for October.”

Thank you for helping me earn a 1550 on the SAT! I was a bit nervous the day of, but as I was going through the test, I felt very prepared. The course taught me how to read and analyze passages as well as the questions, which really helped me narrow down the choices and choose the correct answer each time.”
