Item Description...
The CliffsTestPrep series offers full-length practice exams that simulate the real tests; proven test-taking strategies to increase your chances at doing well; and thorough review exercises to help fill in any knowledge gaps.

For anyone taking any standardized test — such as the SAT, ACT, or GRE — Cliffs Verbal Review for Standardized Tests is designed to review, refresh, and reintroduce essential grammar and verbal skills. Written by test preparation experts, this clear, concise, and easy-to-use guide gives insight into the types of questions you'll face on the exam, and it demonstrates how to avoid the common and costly errors that trap the unprepared. Inside, you'll find an extensive overview of these areas:

  • Grammar and usage review
  • English usage and sentence correction
  • Timed essay writing
  • Verbal ability -- antonyms, analogies, and sentence completion
  • Reading comprehension
  • Strategies for each question type
  • Practice exercises with hundreds of questions and complete explanations

This guide's unique approach will not only review the essential basic skills, but also show you how to apply them effectively and specifically on standardized tests. As you work your way through this guide, you'll hone your knowledge of

  • Parts of speech, adjectives and adverbs, linking verbs, and comparatives and superlatives
  • Dangling modifiers, ambiguous pronouns, and double negatives
  • Errors in diction, idiom, and style
  • Punctuation — using commas, semi-colons, colons, apostrophes, and dashes
  • Writing narrative, descriptive, analytical, and expository essays

With guidance from the CliffsTestPrep series, you'll feel at home in any standardized-test environment!

Great Help!  May 8, 2007
If you are trying to take any of the tests mentioned in the book, this will be of great help to you! It takes you straight to the points that you will need in order to pass in those areas.
There are better books out there for your money  Jun 8, 2003
I just took the SAT today and I feel that this book changed nothing. Although it has an O.K. grammar section, I've seen better. The analogy and critical reading section were [garbage]. It had nearly no vocbulary building strategies. Plus, the book was outdated.(1986 - please!)This book also knew next to nothing about the tests.(and what it did was outdated) I bought it because it was cheap and covered both the SAT and ACT, so I thought it might be good. Was I in for a big shock! Don't be enticed by the low price, you can find better, newer, updated books on the market.
Fantastic Book. A must buy!  Oct 10, 2002
I loved this book! All your question you have about grammer are here! You might not know whether to use who or whom or when to use few or less. This book has a fantastic index also for when you want to touch up on certain subjects (i.e. who/whom). There are also some great vocabulary words in here. A must buy!
