Reading Columnists Online

Stellar SAT reading scores signify that you are a reader. Having a college-level vocabulary is imperative because the SAT demands such knowledge to do well with the Sentence-Completions and Critical Reading sections.

Read to challenge your thinking. Read to learn new ideas. Read daily. To do so, follow some of these syndicated newspaper columnists. When reading, ask yourself the following:

  • What is the main idea?
  • What is the author's purpose?
  • What is the author's tone?
