Top 10 Best Books to Read in Higher & Continuing Education - August 2021

Click the "look inside" feature above to browse the SAT Black Book and get a feel for how it approaches the SAT! Current SAT Prep for 2020, 2021, and beyond The fully up-to-date SAT Prep Black Book, Second Edition gives you unique, effective SAT strategies from Mike Barrett, an SAT tutor with clients all over the globe who pay him hundreds of dollars an hour for phone tutoring. In addition to extensive and effective training on every aspect of the SAT, the SAT Black Book gives you detailed, systematic, easy-to-follow walkthroughs for every question in 4 of the College Board's official SAT Practice Tests. The Black Book is a must-have in your SAT preparation, whether you want to make a perfect 1600 to apply to an Ivy, score a 450 in each section to claim a sports scholarship, or anything in between. You can find the first 4 Practice SAT tests from the College Board for free on the College Board’s website, or in the "Blue Book," which is the College Board's Official SAT Study Guide, 2016 Edition or 2018 Edition---both editions contain the first 4 official SAT practice tests. (The SAT Prep Black Book has no affiliation with the College Board.) The Black Book and the real practice SAT tests from the College Board are all you need to get your best possible SAT score. The Black Book is the ideal SAT book for 3 major reasons: It covers every aspect of the test with advice that actually works, making it unique in the SAT prep field. It doesn't just review material from your high school classes! Instead, you'll learn to exploit design flaws in the SAT, using its own "SAT tricks" against it. The Black Book contains 600+ detailed, systematic, easy-to-follow walkthroughs for real SAT questions from the College Board, so you know that what you're learning actually works. You'll see every question from the first 4 official SAT Practice Tests attacked in a way that clearly demonstrates the ideal thought process on the SAT. (You'll need your own copies of those real SAT practice tests, which you can get for free from the College Board’s website. You can also find them in the College Board’s 2016 or 2018 “Blue Book.”) The Black Book is a clear, concise roadmap to the SAT. (See the selected highlights below). It explains exactly how every SAT question works, and how to beat it in the least time possible. Selected Highlights from the SAT Prep Black Book: Why the SAT isn’t designed like a high school test, and how this fact influences every aspect of the proper approach to SAT preparation… Why every SAT question can only have one valid answer, no matter how much it might seem otherwise sometimes… How to look at SAT questions the same way the College Board does when it writes them… Why it’s so important to work with real SAT questions from the College Board…and why you shouldn’t pay much attention to the College Board’s written explanations for those questions! What you’re actually supposed to do when the SAT asks you about an author’s attitude… Why you shouldn’t put your faith in diagnostic tests, even if they come from the College Board… The important implications of viewing time as an investment on test day… The simple formula that allows you to crank out a top-scoring essay (that is, if you even need to do the SAT Essay in the first place)… The special grammatical rules that are followed by the SAT Writing and Language section…and how they sometimes differ from common usage in school… The unwritten rules for every kind of SAT question… The many ways to approach an SAT Math question, and which ones are likely to work best for you… Why the “order of difficulty” doesn’t really exist… Why every real SAT question can potentially be answered in under 30 seconds… And much more than we can fit in this space…

9. The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Higher & Continuing Education - August 2021

A timely investigation into the new "safety culture" on campus and the dangers it poses to free speech, mental health, education, and ultimately democracy The generation now coming of age has been taught three Great Untruths: their feelings are always right; they should avoid pain and discomfort; and they should look for faults in others and not themselves. These three Great Untruths are part of a larger philosophy that sees young people as fragile creatures who must be protected and supervised by adults. But despite the good intentions of the adults who impart them, the Great Untruths are harming kids by teaching them the opposite of ancient wisdom and the opposite of modern psychological findings on grit, growth, and antifragility.   The result is rising rates of depression and anxiety, along with endless stories of college campuses torn apart by moralistic divisions and mutual recriminations.    This is a book about how we got here. First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt take us on a tour of the social trends stretching back to the 1980s that have produced the confusion and conflict on campus today, including the loss of unsupervised play time and the birth of social media, all during a time of rising political polarization.     This is a book about how to fix the mess. The culture of “safety” and its intolerance of opposing viewpoints has left many young people anxious and unprepared for adult life, with devastating consequences for them, for their parents, for the companies that will soon hire them, and for a democracy that is already pushed to the brink of violence over its growing political divisions. Lukianoff and Haidt offer a comprehensive set of reforms that will strengthen young people and institutions, allowing us all to reap the benefits of diversity, including viewpoint diversity.     This is a book for anyone who is confused by what’s happening on college campuses today, or has children, or is concerned about the growing inability of Americans to live and work and cooperate across party lines.
