Whether you are preparing for SAT, ACT, IELTS, or TOEFL, all the tests can fall into one category: College Level Standardized Test. In that sense, the scoring rubrics of all the standardized tests are very similar to each other. The tests (SAT, ACT, IELTS, TOEFL, SSAT, or K 8 12 in class essay) you are preparing will measure the following three major sub-categories: Reading: How thoroughly you understand a reading passage or a question (prompt) by asking what is the central point of the argument based on the evidence you found. Analysis: Analysis measures your logic, stylistic and persuasive devices that you can commend. Writing: Writing should be holistic in its organization with precise sentence structure, flawless syntax, style, and tone. Here, in this book, students can find how Harvard students write their essays and follow their reasoning analytically with almost free of error. San, for over 20 years of his career, worked in various educational industries. From college entrance consulting to teaching standardized tests such as SAT / ACT / IELTS / TOEFL / LSAT/ GRE, he has been helping numerous students to enter their top choice universities. San is currently living in North Vancouver, B.C. Canada, where he teaches and write books to further students' needs and realize their ambitions.

PWN is back, and better than ever. The PWN the SAT Math Guide was created to help ambitious, highly motivated kids maximize their SAT math scores. Do you crave a higher score? Are you willing to do a little hard work to achieve it? Good. I knew I liked you. Read this book from beginning to end, with a pencil in hand and a calculator and an Official SAT Study Guide by your side. When you’re done, you’ll be able to approach the SAT with confidence—very few questions will surprise you, and even fewer will be able to withstand your withering attacks. Stand tall, intrepid student. Destiny awaits. Updated for the New SAT This new edition of the Math Guide has been updated, rather painstakingly, to reflect the realities of the new SAT coming March 2016. This book was not rushed to market to take advantage of interest in the new exam. I took my time, and hopefully I got it right. Chapters are broken into five major sections: Techniques, Heart of Algebra, Passport to Advanced Math, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Additional Topics in Math. Each chapter concludes with a reference list of similar questions from official practice tests. Practice questions are designated as either “Calculator” or “No calculator.” Students will be forbidden from using their calculators for one whole section of the new SAT. Emphasis is placed on nimbleness—the ability to approach problems in multiple ways to find the one that works best. Calculator solutions and shortcuts are provided where appropriate. Join me online Readers of this book are encouraged to register as Math Guide Owners at the PWN the SAT website. There will be video solutions and other bonus content there. Signing up there will also give me a way to get in touch with you if I make book updates. See details at http://mathguide.pwnthesat.com.

The first-ever insider account, timed to the 75th anniversary of Camp David Never before have the gates of Camp David been opened to the public. Intensely private and completely secluded, the president's personal campground is situated deep in the woods, up miles of unmarked roads that are practically invisible to the untrained eye. Now, for the first time, we are allowed to travel along the mountain route and directly into the fascinating and intimate complex of rustic residential cabins, wildlife trails, and athletic courses that make up the presidential family room. For seventy-five years, Camp David has served as the president's private retreat. A home away from the hustle and bustle of Washington, this historic site is the ideal place for the First Family to relax, unwind, and, perhaps most important, escape from the incessant gaze of the media and the public. It has hosted decades of family gatherings for thirteen presidents, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Barack Obama, including holiday celebrations, reunions, and even a wedding. But more than just a weekend getaway, Camp David has also been the site of private meetings and high-level summits with foreign leaders to foster diplomacy. Former Camp David commander Rear Admiral Michael Giorgione, CEC, USN (Ret.), takes us deep into this enigmatic and revered sanctuary. Combining fascinating first-person anecdotes of the presidents and their families with storied history and interviews with commanders both past and present, he reveals the intimate connection felt by the First Families with this historic retreat.
