SAT Reading Practice
Too often SAT Reading practice is merely grinding passage after passage and question after question. But there is limited benefit to that. If you have base weaknesses in vocabulary or background knowledge, you are still just guessing. If you want a perfect score on SAT reading, you need to stop guessing and start knowing.
