SAT and College Preparation course for the Christian Student

SAT and College Preparation Course for the Christian Student
James P. Strobaugh
Masterbooks.net

One thing I struggle with as a homeschool mom is making sure I am teaching my kids the things they will need to know to succeed in college. Both faith based knowledge as well as academically. Not having the organized prep sessions geared for the SAT or ACT makes it a bit more difficult to stay on course.

This book is a fantastic aid for my teen in daily prep for the SATS and college entrance exams. I can incorporate the course into his homeschool lessons, giving him a daily advantage. 150 daily lessons help the student with vocabulary, critical reading and solving a variety of math equations. A reading list of suggested books encourages the student to delve into literature and increase their vocabulary by writing down the words they don’t know, and then incorporating them into their writing or speaking to become more familiar with them. “Organized consistent reading is critical to a high SAT score.”
Essay writing is something often lacking in a homeschool curriculum, so I find the essay writing helps to be very valuable to my student. 50 sample college admission essays are included at the back of the book along with essay styles and suggestions for writing them.

Scripture is at the forefront of this course prep, beginning each lesson with a scripture reading and devotional study. Realizing that as a Christian, the students focus needs to begin with Christ. This in of itself makes this study course different than others on the market today.

There are test taking tips, a reading journal, book list, and even an answer key for the math questions.. definitely a help to the teacher!
Perfect daily help for the Christian student to get prepped for the college experience.
