Overview

Kaplan’s Sharp series can help improve anyone’s grasp of grammar, vocabulary, math, or writing. The cumulative Building Block system uses easy-to-follow rules, practical review, and foolproof strategies to boost readers’ skills.

Features:

  • A 10-question diagnostic quiz in every chapter to show readers where they need the most help.
  • Math from basic arithmetic to Algebra 2, broken down by subject and then building up from chapter to chapter so readers can group concepts together for easier learning.
  • A variety of practice exercises with detailed answer explanations for every topic.
  • A 15-20 question recognition and recall practice set that includes material from the entire chapter (and a few questions that cover material from the previous chapters), to once again reinforce what the reader has learned on a larger scale. Detailed answer explanations follow the practice set.
  • Bulleted chapter summaries for easy review.
