This book is an absolute waste of money. The sentence completion questions arent even accurate. Ive checked the dictionary, i can site questions that are flat out wrong. If you are looking for a book to use as a good doorstoper, this is the book for you!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I first saw the Barron's SAT book a few years ago when my brother took the SAT. He was using it in a course at his high school. His teacher told the class that it was by far the best book out there. Still he bought a few others to do some extra studying, and he told me that his teacher was right---the other books weren't nearly as good. He particularly liked the vocabulary cards and list and all of the math tactics. When I starting to get ready for my SAT this year, I decided not to take a course at all and just go through the entire Barron's book. It really worked-- my PSAT scores were 1080....my SAT scores were 1330. There is no way I would have gone up 250 points on my own or with one of the other books my brother had. And, went up way more than he or anyone in his class did! If you are taking the SAT, get this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a good book. It's helpful. I liked that they gave you a lot of tactics. My major problem with the book is that, after taking practice tests, you don't get a score that corresponds with the SAT system of numbers. That way, you can't tell if you've reached your goal yet and how much more work you need to do. Also, the system of 'just memorizing' all the vocab words, prefixs, etc. for the verbal section is unrealistic for the busy High School student.Was this review helpful?

don't waste your time on this book -- the math section is ridiculously HARD!! plus they don't even give you your SAT score at the end of each practice test. the only good pt. about the book was its math explanations which i found helpful. i also liked the pre-made vocab flash cards in the back just bc i'm quite lazy. as for that 3500 VOC LIST---- YOU MUST BE INSANE, BARRONS!!Was this review helpful?

its difficult to finish the entire book because it is so thorough. but once you finish it, you can really feel how much you have learned. for those who finds this book incredibly dull, i recommend Princeton Review as a easy starter. i raised my score from a 1230 to a 1500!! =)Was this review helpful?

Hi~ let me start out by saying I am no genius, or some 12 year old kid who wants to start preparing for the SATs early ... I got this book 2 weeks before I was about to take the SATs my second time and wow ... this is one of the most rigerous (see i cant even spell that!) books, and it helped me so much! it has amazing techniques, and the ahrdest problems which really get you to think! 10 Real SATs isn't that good because most books offer practice tests at the end, KAPLAN was okay, Princeton Review has too much talk and easy problems which are nothing like the SATs ... I would suggest this book~ its worth every penny, and if you don't want to spend this kind of money get it from your library!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

My friend actually improved by 180 points on her SAT I by using this book. She got a 1490 on her SAT I. This book will definitely help you if you really study. I recommend this over the Real 10 SAT book because it gives you explanations on the problems and it help you to expand your vocabulary skills.Was this review helpful?
