My Take on the Book
As someone who has worked in the College Admissions field for a number of years I have to say that this was a very well-written book that was written at the level for any teenager to follow and understand. I loved the number of examples that the author provides within the text and he makes it very simple for the reader to grasp the concepts that he is sharing. What he also does within this book is he shares his thoughts in a fun, down-to-earth way that a teenager will relate to. He does not pontificate and share a list of do this and not that, but instead gives clear instruction and examples to help any reader with making their SAT Essay that much stronger. This was a great book that I would highly recommend to any teenager preparing for the SAT, as this will put your mind at ease and help you to be ready to ace the writing portion of the test!
