    A Huge Disappointment

    I purchased the Barron's SAT II Biology E/M review book as it seemed to be the most popular choice. However, I was immediately daunted by the excess of information and ridiculously tedious, minute details. I simply hoped that the SAT II would have some of these details, so that the hours I spent trying to memorize everything would not be in vain. All-in-all, I read the book THREE TIMES. The lowest score I got on a practice test was one 710 and then three 770s. So, the day I took the actual SAT II, I figured I would be OK. WRONG!!!! The SAT II is actually much less nit-picky than the Barron's book would have it. It's easy to get lost in that book and then look over the important information. I found myself puzzled on the many difficult questions dealing with analyzing charts, data, and graphs, (And, trust me, those are the killer questions on this test)! I was incredibly disappointed to score a 680 on the actual SAT II. From 770 - 680. Thank you Barron's. I will be retaking the exam in October using Kaplan's, Sparknotes Review, and SAT II Bio for Dummies ; I recommend you use the same, and forever ostracize the Barron's review system.
