someone from this board mentioned that AP language prep books really help with critical reading skills, any comments?

I think so, In my English class (10th Grade GT) we practice with AP style questions and it really does help with critical reading skills on the SAT. The AP style questions are alot harder than the SAT CR because the AP forces you to think about the Q but on CR the answer is easily found in the text.

definitely does. i'm in ap language&comp, and since the ap MC is so much harder than the SATs, verbal CR is easy-schmeezy.

I doubt it considering i got a 4 in AP lang and a disgustingly low 600 in SAT verbal, mostly due to CRITICAL READING.
AP writing is interesting whereas Critical reading is BORING. AP goes deeper into the text, Critical reading is very on the surface, and analyzing may just make you get the wrong answer. Practice reading boring stuff...like the newspaper or something.
