This thoroughly revised second edition of Simonís Saga for the SAT has been re-focused to reflect the latest version of the SAT test format. It literally takes a ďnovelĒ approach to building studentsí verbal skills. Simon, a very cool college dude, shows college-bound kids around campus. In the process, he helps them develop their vocabulary and overall verbal fluency, virtually guaranteeing them a great SAT Critical Reading score. Simon talks about both social and academic campus life. As his story proceeds, new words for students to learn are printed in boldface typeóthe readerís signal to check word definitions and correct usage. All boldface words appear with meanings and cross-references in a glossary at the back of the book. Brand-new in this edition are the updated exercises that conclude every chapter. All questions have been changed to reflect the question types that appear on the latest version of the SAT. Specifically, the new exercises presentó
  • More than 100 SAT-type Critical Reading questions
  • More than 300 SAT-type Sentence Completion questions
Simonís story also familiarizes students with ideas and issues in history, science, and culture that often appear in SAT Critical Reading passages. Hereís a practical and entertaining way for college-bound students to ace the very important Critical Reading section of the SAT.

Praise for the Previous Edition
From the reviews:

ďLuckily, there is hope for those who cannot stand the tedious work of memorizing hundreds of denotations. Simonís Saga for the SAT Verbal is a fun way to learn those exotic SAT words that not even your English teacher knew existed. Ö an excellent, fun way to prepare for the SATs.Ē
—Candice Nguyen, Oakland Tribune, September 2003
