Both the ACT and the SAT contain verbal and math question types. SAT/ACT Preparation Part I will give you all the information you need to do well on the verbal questions of the ACT and the new SAT.

In 2005, the SAT verbal questions also changed. The lessons in this course are designed to prepare you for those changes. The new verbal sections are called Writing and Critical Reading. The Critical Reading section consists of sentence completions and reading comprehension of both long and short passages. You'll learn how to answer both types of questions in the most time-efficient manner. The SAT also contains a new Writing section, which includes a student-written essay and multiple-choice questions about grammar and English usage. This course will prepare you to write the type of essays that grading officials are looking for, and will provide you with a grammar and usage review that's specific to the rules you'll be tested on in the new SAT.
