Summary

The lowest level book in McWhorter's best-selling, three-book reading series, Guide to College Reading is a practical, highly accessible text designed to improve vocabulary and comprehension skills. Numerous critical thinking and self-evaluation strategies reinforce the book's emphasis on reading as thinking. In addition, ten additional reading selections provide students with opportunities for practice. The book's streamlined approach focuses on the most important skills at this basic reading level (vocabulary, main idea, supporting detail, and patterns of organization, with some coverage of inference and critical reading).
