SAT, ACT, TOEFL College Prep English Practice

College Prep English Practice book cover

SAT, ACT, TOEFL College Prep English Practice is not about test-taking as much as improving those English verbal skills being tested as quickly, efficiently, and enjoyably as possible. Each chapter begins with a whimsical story whose highly concentrated vocabulary is presented in a memorable context with side-by-side glossary. There follow comprehension quizzes, language analysis, practice worksheets and suggested writing projects.

College Prep English Usage goes beyond simply teaching grammar, style and vocabulary. It trains the reader to determine current English language usage with a mouse-click and a few keystrokes far more readily than would be possible with any style or grammar manual, and to learn to emulate the English that dominates on the Net or in any specific interest area or region, particularly the academic realms, through quantitative analysis of targeted searches.

An atmosphere of playfulness and frivolity is maintained throughout in the stories, exercises, grammar examples and suggested projects.

CPEP is an update and expansion of SAT Practice: The New Verbal Section (See below), which treated specifically the SAT exam of 2005 and has been used extensively in homeschooling environments.
