to condense the content of a passage down to the main ideas, which you put into your own words
Most test questions will ask you to summarize a passage, or to identify which statement might be the best summary of a passage. This means that you must be able to identify the main idea(s) of the passage and put them into your own words (or recognize when someone else does so). Summaries are always shorter than the original because they are just the restatement of the main points, not any of the detail.
We are dedicated to bringing you the very best practice tests, flashcards and study guides to help you prepare for and pass the test that stands between you and the rest of your life.
