This book is good only for ADDITIONAL PRACTICE. It includes 5 full length practice tests. It drills you like crazy, but it doesn't help very much because it doesn't teach you how to write the essays. It makes the exam seem hopeless because the sample essays seem really hard to learn. In fact, the test graders aren't looking for a masterpiece written in 40 minutes. This book is only good for practice AFTER you learn how to write the essays and all the information about style analysis and rhetorical devices.
