Written for students by students, Up Your Score is the book kids will actually want to use to help them ace the test. Its four authors and guest editor—who each achieved perfect or close-to-perfect scores and got into the college of their choice—offer expert advice and proven strategies, laced with an edgy wit. Kept sharply up-to-date by the guest editor, Up Your Score is a complement—and a reality check—to the institutional reviews by Princeton and Kaplan. It’s the book that injects attitude into the dry business of test prep, fending off the anxiety of the SAT with peer humor. A rich and lively vocabulary section is filled with examples that kids will relate to. The math section delves into the eight core ways the test covers the subject, plus offers problem-solving techniques. The writing section addresses the 13 most important grammar rules to know. And Up Your Score shows how to “psych out” the test: How to think like the SAT. How to prepare the essay in advance. The best ways to fill in answer circles and other strategies to save precious minutes. Plus, tips for maintaining concentration, why it’s always better to guess than to leave a question unanswered, what to wear on test day, and a recipe for energy-boosting Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars.

Yes, kids, there is an alternative to the big, bad SAT—it’s called the ACT. And yes, there’s now an alternative to the big, bad, boring ACT study books: Up Your Score: ACT, the prep and survival guide with attitude. Like Up Your Score: SAT, Up Your Score: ACT is the underground guide for the 1.65 million kids who take the ACT every year (more than take the SAT). It’s written by Chris Arp, age 26, a Princeton graduate, along with his colleagues at Manhattan’s prestigious Veritas Test Prep company and three high school seniors who each scored an ACT-perfect 36. They take the guerrilla guide Up Your Score approach of combining a thorough knowledge of how the test works and the subjects it covers with for-student, by-student tips and strategies; lively pop culture references and jokes; and a fresh knowledge of what it’s like to actually take the test. Ace the reading section by developing the Five Habits of Lean Forward Reading, including Treat reading like a conversation and Pay attention to direction words. Master the math section through techniques like “plugging in,” an amazing trick that simplifies all algebra word problems. The ACT is heavy on grammar, so the book delves into commas, semicolons, pronouns, transitions, and more. It covers the science the way the test does—showing how to use science reasoning. Plus—how to make GameFace Quintuple Sugar Blast Bars for that needed burst of energy.

It’s the ACT’s turn. No longer considered a “regional” test and accepted at all four-year colleges throughout the United States, it’s the most popular college admissions test in the country. More than 1.8 million students from the class of 2013 took it. Now updated to address the changes planned for the ACT in 2015, Up Your Score: ACT is the test prep and survival guide that kids will actually want to use. Written by Chris Arp, a Princeton graduate and top ACT tutor— with the help of four students who aced the test (and went on to the colleges of their choice)—it’s a true insider’s guide, filled with effective strategies and tips, delivered with the attitude, smarts, and wit that make Up Your Score the best-selling alternative test prep series in print. Beginning in 2015, the ACT will include more layers in its scoring (including separate STEM, English language arts, and “progress toward career readiness” sub-scores); in some places it will be administered digitally (and those tests will include optional “constructed-response” questions, in which students will have to come up with the answers, not select among multiple choices); and the essay will be less open ended, requiring more analysis. In addition to addressing these changes, the book explains how to crush the reading section by developing the Five Habits of Lean Forward Reading. Master the math section through techniques like “plugging in,”?an amazing trick that simplifies all algebra word problems. Annihilate the English section by absorbing six key punctuation and eight essential grammar rules. And sail through the science section by understanding that it actually tests reasoning. Plus there is an ACT fitness regime, tongue-in-cheek fashion and beauty tips, and a recipe for energy-boosting GameFace Quintuple Sugar Blast Bars. Good luck finding that in any other test prep book.

Ce grand lexique permet de trouver aisément un équivalent français d'un quelconque verbe à particule, sans avoir à faire des recherches longues et fastidieuses. Un inventaire complet et mis à jour des verbes à particule en anglais britannique et américain, soit un total de 11 000 entrées. Définitions, exemples, traductions, précisions sur le registre de langage, indication de l'emplacement de l'accent tonique principal, des sujets et/ou des compléments possibles ainsi que de l'ordre syntaxique préférentiel pour les verbes à particule séparable...
