Section 1: Introduction

Find out why you should take this course in this lecture.

Section 2: Connected Meaning
Sentence Placement

Some questions are just freebies! Learn how to answer one of the easiest types of questions in the Writing & Language section.


Use the sentence context to pick the word with the meaning that fits exactly with its context.


If you use transitions in your writing, this one should be easy! If you don't use transitions, then it's vital that you learn how to use them in order to improve the logical flow of your writing.

This is a great chance to learn some of the most important transitions since the College Board tests this skill relentlessly.


Graphs are pretty easy once you get the hang of them. Learn how to read them quickly and effectively.

Section 3: Basic Grammar

Let's learn the 7 main parts of speech that are the foundations of grammar.


When is a verb not a verb? When it's a verbal...

Very few people know that any words ending in an "-ing" are NOT verbs. This is critical for every student!


Possessives are pretty easy, but the College Board tests this one a lot, so it's worth reviewing.


We all now how to use a period, but are you confident with your comma usage or just guessing?

How about colons, semi-colons, and em-dashes? If not, this is the lecture for you.


Weirder or more weird? Happier or more happy? Commoner or more common?

Do you know the exact usage rules for comparatives and superlatives?

Instructor Biography

Philip Lee, SAT & ACT Perfect Score Expert

I grew up and attended college in Australia, but moved to the USA for grad school and have fallen in love with America.

Having worked in education for a number of years before grad school, I felt the passion to return to helping students achieve their potential.

In particular, I specialize in helping students master the SAT and ACT. Over the years, I have developed a foolproof method of attacking these tests that have produced amazing results for all my students. Using these methods, I have scored perfectly on both tests and have even trained students as young as 14 to achieve their own perfect scores.
