I am very proud and pleased to report that my new book THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO CRITICAL READING AND VOCABULARY performed exceptionally well on all three November 2013 SATs. ESSENTIAL scored a total of 74 correct answers on the these tests. In addition, ESSENTIAL contained a large number of words that were wrong answers. It is important to remember that ESSENTIAL is more than just a vocabulary book. It devotes 7 chapters (and almost 300 practice examples) to Sentence Completions and 10 chapters to Critical Reading. So study ESSENTIAL and be an indomitable warrior on the SAT!
