The Good News . . . and the Good News
On this section, as on the other sections, grammar terminology
is not tested. Neither is spelling. Mastering this section does
not require you to memorize a huge amount of material or learn a
ton of new concepts. You’ll see questions on the passive voice, run-on
sentences, and misplaced modifiers. You’ll probably also encounter
a few questions on parallelism, conjunctions, fragments, and gerunds.
Although some of the material in this chapter is new, you’ll notice
that the SAT tests many of the same grammar rules in this
section that we cover in the Identifying Sentence Errors chapter.
