Editorial Reviews

The Princeton Review realizes that acing the English: Reading, Literature, and Research exam is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about English--only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the Virginia SOL EOC English: Reading, Literature, and Research, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:

  • Eliminate incorrect answer choices by using Process of Elimination and other techniques
  • Familiarize students with every type of reading material that might be on the test
  • Use the "two-pass" system to get a grip on the test structure and raise scores
  • Hone individual skills with practice questions for each type of test question

***This book includes 2 full-length simulated exams. All of TPR's sample test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual End-of-Course English: Reading, Literature, and Research exam, and TPR fully explains every solution.

Contents Include:

I Introduction

  • The Mystery

II Terms, Literary Movements, and Writers
