一.识别错误Identifying Sentence Error(简称ISE)
.动词 动词里面主要考三个考点：主谓搭配一致;平行结构;时态语态一致。 主谓搭配一致主要就是指谓语的单复数要和它所对应的主语的单复数一致。
Like every other
(A) sociological system, the commune has (B) a way of functioning that may be easily upset (C), either slightly or extreme (D). NO ERROR(E)
分析：这道题目所考察的就是平行结构，因为either or所紧连接的两个词在语法功能和时态结构上应该保持一致，前面是副词slightly，所以后面也应该是副词extremely.答案选D. 时态和语态一致即指前后的时态和主被动的语态应该保持一致
比如： Many(A) biographers had stated(B) that Samuel Langhorne Clemens changed(C) his name to Mark Twain to echo the riverboat captain’s call ascertaining the safe navigation(D) depth of the Mississippi River. NO ERROR(E) 很明显这句话的主句应该是用一般过去时而不应该是过去完成时，所以答案应该选B,将had去掉。
2.名词 NEW SAT中的名词主要是考察名词的单复数错误。 Although(A) they have(B) radically different career plans, Luna and Gabriei both(C) hope to be a Michigan State graduates(D) one day. NO ERROR(E) 这道题目的D前面用了不定冠词a,后面又出现了一个复数形式graduates，所以明显是错误的。
3.介词 介词主要是考固定搭配。比如看这么一道题目： Wanda implored(A) Marco not to be jealous over(B) her work; she explained that because(C) she liked both Marco and her job, he would have to share(D). NO ERROR(E) 我们知道固定搭配应该是be jealous of,所以jealous后面的介词应该是of而不应该是over,答案选B.
一般这种题型有四大类问题：改正句子中的语法错误(Sentence Revision);把两句句子结合成一个句子(Sentence Combination);在段落中插入句子(Senetence Addition);以及文章分析问题(Eassy Analysis)。IE主要考查词法：
