101 Great Books To Read for College Bound Readers

Students who take tuition and classes to boost their SAT score often find improving in the English section to be the most challenging.

Prevention is better than cure and it is more beneficial to work on building comprehension and analytical skills in advance through regular, quality reading .

The College Board sets the SAT papers and recommends 101 “Great Books” to read.

I suggest that the best time to start reading  is grade 8/9, before the pressure of external examinations intensifies.

Read deeply paying attention to the following ideas rather than just plot:

  • themes
  • character development
  • authorial purpose
  • how effects have been created
  • setting
  • context
