  • For Students

1.  I read a lot of novels already. Why should I also read informational nonfiction passages?

The passages you’ll frequently encounter in your classes and on standardized tests, such as the SAT and ACT, may differ in style and content from novels and stories. To improve your comprehension of academic writing, you have to practice reading and analyzing nonfiction every day. Our daily nonfiction reading practice will give you the comprehensive critical reading skills you need to be an outstanding student.
