Important Note About This Book and Its Author
This book is the most up-to-date and complete book on the SAT. EVERY EXAM is patterned after the current SAT, and all the strategies and techniques deal with the current SAT. The SAT incorporates all the Gruber Critical Thinking Strategies.
This book was written by Dr. Gary Gruber, the leading authority on the SAT, who knows more than anyone else in the test-prep market on exactly what is being tested for in the SAT. In fact the procedures to answer the current SAT questions rely more heavily on the Gruber Thinking Strategies than ever before and it is the only book that has the exact thinking strategies you need to use to maximize your SAT score. Gruber's SAT books are used more than any other books by the nation's school districts and are proven to get the highest documented school district SAT scores.
Dr. Gruber has published more than 30 books with major publishers on test-taking and critical thinking methods, with over 6 million copies sold. He has also authored over 1000 articles on his work, in scholarly journals and syndicated nationally in newspapers, has appeared on numerous television and radio shows and has been interviewed in hundreds of magazines and newspapers. He has developed major programs for school districts and for city and state educational agencies for improving and restructuring curriculum, increasing learning ability and test scores, increasing motivation and developing a "passion" for learning and problem solving and decreasing the student dropout rate. For example, PBS (Public BroadcastingSystem) chose Dr. Gruber to train the nation's teachers on how to prepare students for the SAT through a national satellite teleconference and videotape. His results have been lauded throughout the country from all walks of life.
Gruber is recognized nationally as the leading expert on standardized tests. It is said that no one in the nation is better at assessing the thinking patterns of "how" a person answers questions and providing the mechanism to improve the faulty thinking approaches. SAT score improvements by students using Gruber's techniques have been the highest in the nation.
Gruber's unique methods have been and are being used by Public Television (PBS), the nation's learning centers, international encyclopedias, school districts throughout the country, in homes and workplaces across the nation, and by a host of other entities.
His goal and mission is to get the nation's potential realized and the nation "impassioned" with learning and problem solving so that they don't merely try to get a "fast" uncritical answer, but actually enjoy and look forward to solving the problem and learning.
Important: Many books do not reflect the SAT questions. Don't practice with questions that misrepresent the actual questions on the SAT. For example, the math questions created by the test makers are now oriented to allow someone to solve many problems without a calculator as fast as with one and some faster without a calculator. This book reflects the SAT more accurately than any other commercial book, and the strategies contained in it are exactly those needed to be used on the SAT It is said that only Dr. Gruber has the expertise and ability to reflect the exam far more closely than any competitor! Don't trust your future with less than the best material.Gruber's Complete Preparation for the SAT. Copyright © by Gary Gruber. Reprinted by permission of HarperCollins Publishers, Inc.
