Time For Those SATs

My children won't need to use this book any time soon, but what a great addition to our library. I do have friends who have children preparing to take their SATs this school year, which is why I requested the book. Many moms in the homeschool group I'm a part of might also be interested in hearing about this book. SAT & College Preparation Course for the Christian Student is designed so that the student can do a few lessons a week instead of having cram sessions weeks before. Integrated into to these lessons are scriptures and devotionals to encourage them to grow in Christ.

This book for Christian students offers:
    *Helps in building study skills
    *Development of an extensive vocabulary
    *Encouragement in the development of writing skills
    *Opportunities for writing practice essays
This book will "help develop and reinforce godly character that will hopefully follow the student and lead to success in college and in life."

I think this looks more like a book for someone who's maybe a freshman or sophomore who might be preparing early on. It says there are 4 components of this course: 1) A daily devotion, 2) Reading & vocabulary exercises, 3) Math & verbal exercises, and 4) test taking strategies. Don't rely on this book alone for your SAT preparation. It's great for the soul though. The book gives you a little schedule of what your child can do on test day as well. It is a little heads up on what you can expect to happen that day although times will vary. I would probably not buy this book, but I also don't have children in high school. I will let a student borrow it and see what they think. You can find this book on for a steal at less than $20!

I received this book for free from Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishers, in exchange for my honest review.
