    Perfect for brief review

    I wasn't interested in spending thousands of dollars on review courses, and I didn't have a ton of time to study before the SAT, so I absolutely loved this book. I studied the vocabulary section, reviewed the math concepts, and then took a couple practice tests, and I got a 2210 on the SAT. If you are looking for really in-depth review, this might not be your best bet, but if you're looking for a little review and some key test-taking strategies, you can't go wrong with this book.
