    Not the same

    I used Barrons because I thought it would be good and it had so much unneccessary information. Plus the practice tests are a lot easier. I got a few 780s and mid 700s, and on the real thing i only got a 710. I'm retaking it in 2 years and this time I'll use Princeton or something else.

    A Huge Disappointment

    I purchased the Barron's SAT II Biology E/M review book as it seemed to be the most popular choice. However, I was immediately daunted by the excess of information and ridiculously tedious, minute details. I simply hoped that the SAT II would have some of these details, so that the hours I spent trying to memorize everything would not be in vain. All-in-all, I read the book THREE TIMES. The lowest score I got on a practice test was one 710 and then three 770s. So, the day I took the actual SAT II, I figured I would be OK. WRONG!!!! The SAT II is actually much less nit-picky than the Barron's book would have it. It's easy to get lost in that book and then look over the important information. I found myself puzzled on the many difficult questions dealing with analyzing charts, data, and graphs, (And, trust me, those are the killer questions on this test)! I was incredibly disappointed to score a 680 on the actual SAT II. From 770 - 680. Thank you Barron's. I will be retaking the exam in October using Kaplan's, Sparknotes Review, and SAT II Bio for Dummies ; I recommend you use the same, and forever ostracize the Barron's review system.

    Uber study guide

    I don't know how much I can talk about this book, mostly because my school requires it for Honors Bio. This book is a great study guide for anyone possibly considering maybe thinking of pondering the notion of taking the SAT II for Biology. Not a bad guide at all, but I again can't speak because Bio always came easy. Still, it beats the rest.

    Don't Bother

    I got this book hoping it would help but it really didn't. My teacher told us not to get it becasue it does not have enough information. She was right. The questions were really easy and they paraphrased too much. It is not that good. If you wanna do good get REA or Princeton Review. In the REA you will read a lot and I warn you it is hard, but you will get a good score. Once again, do not buy this book becasue it does not help.

    Excellent Review Book

    The Barron's review book contains very thorough, and detailed information. If you get this book, do not plan on reading the whole thing. My suggestion is that you take a practice test in the back(they are very good) see what you got wrong, then go into the book and study that topic. Study your weak areas, don't waste time on the areas that you already know, because the SAT II is a pretty general exam, and only tests that you have an understanding of the various areas of biology. If the review book is used in this way, it is very effective.

    This book is brilliant

    Provided you start studying for the SAT II well in advance (a month and a half or so) and your biology course in school has been a relatively thorough one, this book is extremely useful. In fact of all the Bio SAT II prep books I've used (including the Princeton Review) I've found this to be the most relevant to the test itself. The questions are of an accurate difficulty level(if anything, a little harder than the actual test) and all the material you need to know is right there. The issue, really, is how you use the book. To minimize 'stress' and 'headaches' (see above) you need to learn where to skim and where to pay attention--where you only need passive recognition and where a more in-depth knowledge is necessary. This, at any rate, has been my experience with the book. I thought it was great. Note too that it's always a good idea to use any test prep book in conjunction with as many tests as you can get your hands on (the sample questions distributed by the College board, the most recent sample tests as found in 10 Real SAT IIs--borrow from the library.) This is how you'll get the most accurate idea of what the test is really like.

    This book gives u HEADACHES!... a lot of STRESS tambien(too)!

    I bought this book a month ago. I chose Barron's b/c most of their books are great. But this biology is a almost a failure. The test questions are eaier and simpler than the Real SAT II:subject tests, and there are many useless facts that will rarely appear on the real SAT 2, facts like drugs and American Association Environment(?).. blah blah blah....... Basically, the book is too wordy and gives a lot of headaches. Because the book is so well organized, there're too many things to memorize(well, actually it's useless to memorize those things, u know) The ONLY thing I like about this book is there are no(?) errors. Just a few days ago I bought Kaplan's and I am quite satisfied wit it.The test questions are harder too! This book has ALL the TESTED material!(as you can see at the cover)
