    AMAZING! Get this! Better than Princeton Review, Barrons, Sparknotes, Kaplan, or Up Your Score!

    The most amazing book out there!!! A great supplement to the Blue Book.
    Get these 2 books and you will kill two birds with 1 stone! This is a long review, brace yourselves! A review for each section! Better than Sparknotes, Barrons, Princeton Review, Kaplan or Up Your Score. (BTW I tried them all).

    I went online and stumbled on Mcgraw Hill PSAT, I admit, I was a little nervous buying yet another PSAT book, after I bought Sparknotes and Barrons and College Board and borrowed Princeton Review and Kaplan from a friend, but after looking at some reviews I said "Why not try one more." I am SO glad I did. The way they teach is like they are actually teaching, not giving some tips. Even the book mentioned that their competetors like to give "tips or help crack the SAT" but that will only work to an extentant. You have to actually understand how to solve the problems. They even have things broken up into lessons. They explain things so well, that I feel like I have a private tutor sitting next to me.

    Critical Read

    They teach vocab in the best way. Why? Well, McGraw Hill teaches you to make a flash card with front having a word in a phrase with the SAT word capitalized and the back of the card having the definition and the root definiton in (). For example on the front of a card it would say: "The lawyers SCRUTINIZED the contract" with "SCRUT being underlined then the back of the card: "to examine closely" (to examine). This is so much easier then having just a plain list of words. Barrons and Sparknotes have a great vocabulary list, but not a good way to learn it. Sure, they have "the most common roots in the back of the book" but no one ever looks there! The way McGraw Hill teaches every section is the best. I hate math, but they way they taught is amazing.

    Amazing explanations for every section
    Fits your schedule, a lesson a day
    4 practice tests PLUS 2 online
    A guranteed score boost

    There are NONE!

    All in all, I wish I would have only gotten this book instead of all the others. This just taught that a "famous name" doesn't neccesarily mean "the best." Sure Barrons, Princeton, and Sparknotes all have tricks, but they won't get you very far. Go with MCH for sure!
