Tough, and can be very frustrating
on July 18, 2011
This Barron's Critical Reading Workbook will guide you through the CR section of the SAT if you use it right. Admittedly, some of these questions are extremely ambiguous and I would really think they're not SAT caliber questions. With that being said, the book can be used to enhance your critical reading skills, because you'll be used to dealing with tough questions. The book also has a very useful vocab list of SAT words, which can help you prepare for the SAT by building your vocabulary bank.
I said that the book frustrating, because, as mentioned before, some questions are really ambiguous. To add to that, I've spotted multiple errors in spelling in the reading and in answer choices, that have resulted in words that simply don't exist, and caused me to pick the wrong choice... Buy this if you need all the help you need for the SAT Critical Reading Section and you're using all the resources you have. Otherwise, look elsewhere, because I'm sure there are better options out there.
