I highly recommend this guide to anyone who equates getting their eighth grader to study to pulling teeth. While the book's thickness may look daunting, its actually quite easy to navigate and has a casual tone that makes the study process that much less painful.

This book informed me on the basics of preparing for the test but gave me a lot to remember and help for during the test that would take too long to do, since these are timed tests.
