    Really Helpful

    I found this book extremely helpful. I took notes on each chapter and then reviewed my notes and got an 800 on the SAT II Math IIC, which is the harder of the two. I would reccommend this book to many, and have. My friend, who started out with the same score as I did, used the Barrons book and scored in the 600s. I was very happy with my purchase.

    Just Too Vague

    I am a straight A math student without problem. I purchased this book expecting to be enhanced or even helped. Instead, the topics covered were too broad. A minimal emphasis was put on trig and that was what appeared most on the test. I got a 690 and found myself thoroughly dissapointed. I highly reccomend straying away from this book if you plan to take the Math IIC exam. Too much of the book covers the dirt simple processes found mainly in the Math IC. My advice is simply to take your money elsewhere.
