    Outsmarting the SAT

    I'm continuing to recommend Outsmarting the SAT to everyone I know with school aged children. Reading the book takes the intimidation out of knowing my children will be facing the SAT in several years. I finished my enjoyable read having the confidence that with some review and coaching that my soon to be 9th grader will be ready when the time comes to test. The book is confidence building, offering conversational, clear, and comprehensive coverage of the skills needed to succeed. I enthusiastically recommend everyone with school aged children read and then follow up using the book as SAT prep for their students.

    This is THE SAT prep book!!!

    I am a high school senior trying to increase my 700 critical reading/650 math score. I needed a prep book that would help me with math 'not my favorite subject' in the limited time I have to prepare for the October exam 'I only have a few hours a week to study'. I was using a different prep book but then switched to Elizabeth King's book as soon as it appeared at my local bookstore. One of the reasons for switching books is because Ms. King's takes such a refreshing approach to SAT prep. So far I have found it to be an excellent prep book. It explains each concept in an easy to understand manner and contains tons of helpful hints and step-by-step explanations. I really enjoy using this book, particularly the comfortable conversational style that Ms. King utilizes--I feel like she is personally tutoring me. She also has a good sense of humor, and I can visualize what an intellectual brain she is, but with the outstanding ability to effectively communicate with her audience. Her suggestion to use her book in conjunction with the CollegeBoard's Official SAT Study Guide for the practice tests is a good one that I also highly recommend. This is not just another one of those SAT prep books, it is THE prep book!!! I understand that she is a highly sought after personal SAT tutor in New York if I didn't live 3,000 miles from her, I would definitely hire her to personally tutor me, using her book as my text. If you're looking for a really good SAT prep book, go out and buy this one right away!

    Can't Wait!

    I really can't wait for this book to hit the shelves! I am a colleague of Elizabeth's and have known her for several years. While working together at a tutoring center, there were countless occasions of me soliciting her help on a particular SAT problem, or advice on the best way to teach a concept. There were even times when I've pulled her into a tutoring session or prep class to give her input- she could always help. (I'm not sure what that says about me, but I know it speaks volumes about her wealth of knowledge and her mastery of strategies for taking the SAT). I look forward to incorporating this book into my own teaching of SAT stategies- It'll be like having Elizabeth directly down the hall all over again- only even more convenient!
