    Keeps You Interested!!

    Although other books may be able to prep you for the sat, they are usually dull, boring, and put you to sleep! This book is interesting, funny, and acctually teaches you things. The test explanations are especially helpful. Even though it should have been proof read better, since there are some minor errors.

    Great book, but slightly misleading

    This book clearly claims that it will help you prepare for not only the New SAT, but the PSAT, as well---this isn't so. Don't get me wrong---if you're looking to prepare for the SAT, this is a wonderful resource. Don't expect, however, to be able to use this book as your primary resource in preparing to take the PSATs. It might come in handy as a reference throughout the course of your preparation, but you will be far better off buying Kaplan PSAT 2005, in terms of the PSAT. Aside from this, no complaints! Sparknotes has done it again!

    I thought that I would never be able to conquer the difficulty level of the questions on the new SATs. I spent a couple of days reviewing, using SparkNotes, and went from a 1480 on their first practice test, to a 1980 on the third one. In order for you to succeed, you need to review everything you got wrong the 1st time around. SparkNotes shows you how to do that. Job well done!
