ASI STUDENT MANUAL:
The student manual is the centerpiece of the ASI course. It was
written exclusively for ASI in the context of the ASI method.
This manual is not
available commercially or through any other company. This manual,
other course resourses listed below, are offered as part of the
Official SAT Guide by the College Board:
This book is used extensively to correlate ASI methodology and
strategy with actual SAT tests and to provide students with SAT
test-taking practice using actual SAT questions.
Included with the course is the Casio fx-55, chosen specifically
for the SAT test. This calculator has all the keys that are necessary
and none of those which would just get in the way. Eliminating
all unnecessary keys eliminates the need for the second
function, graphing and trigonometry keys that just clutter
and complicate the computation process, wasting valuable time.
Since all students have the same calculator, only one set of instructions
are needed for teaching, saving valuable time for both instructors
This great little book is designed to build vocabulary
and teach the most useful of the classical word-building root
words. It employs an original approach that integrates readily
with the ASI method. Unlike most vocabulary builders that rely
on rote alphabetical memorization, this book presents words in
meaningful text that includes interesting, and many times humorous,
trivia. It is great reading and a wonderful enhancement and supplement
to the course.
This resourse is a novel approach to building SAT
vocabulary. Based on 35 previous SATS's, SAT level words are presented
in context, bolded, and defined in the Glossary. A terrific way
to prepare for the SAT by reading a mesmerizing mystery.
Cards / Highlighter / Verbal/Math Solutions Handouts:
The course includes a set of thirty-two flash cards to aid practice
and review. Just because we can't be with students as they practice
the 10 Real SATs tests, doesn't mean they are on their own. They
will be provided with answers and detailed explanations for test
questions for both verbal and math sections. Students can lose
as much as 200 points on the SAT by missing key words that identify
the questions and assure the correct solution. Students use a
highlighter to condition the mind to find ALL these clue words.
