As a professional SAT prep tutor, I frequently found myself running out of practice questions for the writing portion of the SAT.

Furthermore, the grammar practice questions that I had available were not well-organized, nor did they help me teach the grammar topics that I thought were most important to the SAT Writing section.

So, I set out to “write the book” on SAT grammar, and created a new resource for myself and my students.

This project became The Top 12 SAT Writing Grammar Rules, a fantastic SAT Writing practice book that you can purchase today through instant-access download.

The idea behind this book is that you take a short pretest and grammar diagnostic to figure out which of the top 12 SAT Writing topics you need to review. Then you can learn the grammar rules that you don’t understand, do practice questions, and improve your SAT Writing score!

In order to convince you of the value of my book, I’m giving away the first half of the grammar practice pretest.

This SAT Writing pretest is completely free… you don’t even have to give me your e-mail address or anything.

You just take the 12-question mini-pretest and check your answers.

If you miss 2 or more questions, you really need to get my book on The Top 12 SAT Writing Grammar Rules today!

Here’s the link to the FREE sample pretest as a .PDF: SAT Writing and Grammar Mini-Pretest

Use it to discover which of the Top 12 SAT Grammar rules you need to practice!

    I took the mini test (12 sat writing grammar rule) and am unable to fathom why choice B is right. I would have thought choice A as wrong. Can you provide the rational?

      Hey, which question is it? I’ll go look!

      • Ben says:

        It is question 10. Economical appears to be in the correct context.

        • Christian says:

          Ben, thank you very much for your sharp eyes.

          ATTENTION everyone: the correct answer to question 10 is A not B

          Ben – is there a free book you’d like for me to send you a digital copy of for spotting this? (check the bookstore for titles)
