I am a private tutor and I use this book to prep my students for the SHSAT. Actually I use it as a supplement to the Kaplan SHSAT book because the math section in the Kaplan text is much stronger. The logical reasoning section in the Barron's book though is the best of any I have seen. Good practice and excellent explanations.

I used this book to prepare for the TJ entrance exams. The mini tests aren't very good. However, the model tests are very similar to the model test provided by TJ.
