What You Need To Know about Developing Your Test-Taking Skills: Reading Comprehension. NTC Skill Builders.
Boone, Robert S.
Designed to help students improve their understanding of everything they read, especially the types of reading selections that they will find on standardized tests (such as the ACT and SAT), this guide explains the 3 key steps to strategic reading: preview before reading, underline and annotate while reading, and summarize after reading. It features dozens of selections in the humanities, social studies, and sciences, and presents typical test questions and answers. Completing these exercises can make a student not only a better reader, but also a much more confident test taker. (NKA)
