This article helps parents and teens understand how to easily boost SAT Verbal and English scores and provides fun, easy book suggestions at the end to help your teen get started and engage in books! You’re busy. You’re juggling extracurriculars and college preparation (whether you’re deciding on a college now or getting ready to apply!) on top of all your classwork. We get it! And frankly, you don’t have a lot of time to open a book, take a super boring SAT prep course, or tackle the impossible: plow through an SAT book that your mom bought you by yourself! And, we all know, that watching Netflix is a lot easier and takes a lot less time than actually reading a book. BUT, you KNOW that if you read, your SAT test scores might just SOAR, and just in case you doubt us, here are some reasons why. There are so many reasons to read, but the most important answer I can give you is that reading is the best way to learn. And it’s so much more fun than your classes– you’re not listening to a teacher lecture, you’re exploring lives and worlds outside of your own. Because I read so much as a kid, and continue to read as a college student, I have a ready toolbox filled with instincts that assist my language use in the classroom and in everyday life. You can still build that toolbox by picking up a book today and naturally ACE those SAT Verbal Scores! Your grammar, reading comprehension, and ability to form articulate arguments can all improve through reading. On top of all those advantages, the ability to read competently and efficiently has helped me so much in my years of schooling. My grades and testing scores all benefit from my reading habit. Yours can too! So why should you read? Reading is the easiest way to improve your grades and testing scores! Regardless of your interests, whether you want to program for the rest of your life or run a business, the ability to efficiently communicate your thoughts is invaluable. I owe my success in school and on standardized tests to reading, and it’s not too late for you to improve too! Check out these easy reads and start your journey towards success!
