High school is one of the busiest and most important times in a person’s life. This book is designed to be integrated into a student’s busy life for their first three years.
Short lessons, containing a devotional, reading lesson, plus a few practice questions, Monday through Friday for the first three years is all it will take to help improve scores on the SAT. The back of the book has book lists, scriptures for the devotional and fifty sample essays.
About the Author- James P. Stobaugh and his wife have homeschooled their four children. He is well known in homeschooling and college/SAT preparation. He has a degree from Vanderbilt and Rutgers universities, and Princeton and Gordon-Conwell seminaries.
My thoughts- I thought this SAT prep. book was well laid out, but it is not for the faint of heart. This book will take the user quite a bit of time beginning in their freshman high school career, but I feel utilizing this program will help improve scores and their relationship with God.
There were two parts about this book that didn’t sit well with me: the quality of the essays and the lack of a practice test. If I were in the admissions department of a college I would not have accepted most of the essays as they were poorly written and rather boring. A practice test would help the student know exactly what to expect.
I recommend this book for students to strengthen their academics and their relationships with God.
