Core Skills: Test Preparation

Like other test prep series, this one gives students practice with the specific skills necessary in the core areas of math, language, and reading to succeed on tests such as the CAT, CTBS, ITBS, MAT, and SAT. This series also includes other skills and helps that others don't. They tend to focus highly on a student's understanding of the test, particularly on developing listening skills, understanding directions, and really thinking questions through before answering. Each unit is divided into "Specific Objectives," or specific skills from each subject that tests focus on, such as word meanings, main ideas or inferences and generalizations in reading. Each lesson focuses on a specific objective and includes a synopsis of the skill being practiced. Hints are included following the multiple-choice questions to get the student to stop and think about what is being asked. Short answer questions are also included and test vocabulary, content, and general understanding. Specific subject area strategies are outlined in each unit before they launch into sharpening their test-taking skills, and practice tests for each main subject area (reading comprehension, vocabulary, math, listening, and language) are included to put the strategies and skills students have learned to use on a standardized test-like situation. Answer key and answer sheets included. - Jess
