SAT Style Reading Practice: The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County

The SAT Reading Practice Passages are not exactly like an SAT reading passage for a couple of reasons. First, most students who struggle with reading, don’t get enough practice. So, my passages are longer than a typical SAT reading passage to help you develop stamina. Second, the passages start with a vocabulary list. This list primes you to understand the vocabulary that appears in context in the passage. One of the key difficulties that international students have is understanding the subtleties of old fashioned usage.

However, the practice passages are meant to improve your overall reading skills and not just your SAT reading skills. You must be able to read efficiently and effectively to be successful in University and life, not just the SAT. So, spend some time with this and the other passages in the series to see your reading ability develop and improve.
