Overview


Most college-bound test-takers already know that 2400 represents a perfect score on the new-format SAT. This book focuses on meeting the needs of top students, the young men and women who believe they can approach that perfect score when it’s time for them to take the SAT. The authors skip past obvious test-taking strategies, coaching students on the do’s and don’ts of smart test-taking, using focused and effective techniques. Their goal is to help top students score 700 or above on all three sections of the new SAT—Critical Reading, Writing, and Math. A score of 2100 or higher will set test takers apart from the crowd, placing them in the top 5% of high-achieving students throughout the country, and virtually guaranteeing them acceptance to the most prestigious and academically challenging colleges. The authors present strategies for tackling the hardest questions on the SAT. Critical Reading strategies are given for both long and short passages. Coaching for the Writing Section covers essential grammar for the three question types and guides students on how to write an exemplary essay in 25 minutes. The Math Section reviews topics in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics, and word problems. The book features many practice questions in all test areas with thorough answer explanations. Valuable appendices include upper-level vocabulary lists and useful math formulas. High-achievers will value this book as that extra leg-up to help them get those scholarships and gain admission to the college of their choice.
