Hey guys!! This book is the best. I got a 610 on Math with this book. I havent used it for the Verbal part yet..but I no it should help...Also buy WORD SMART..BY PRINCTON REVIEW,....it is great
the only reason that this book got 2 stars was because of the section on analogies that was somewhat good. the sample test questions were bad beyond belief. they probably picked the worst questions from past sats. if you want sample tests get directly from the source with '10 real sats.' the section on critical reading was misleading in their crazy tactics to try and save time. there were also numberous mistakes in type. i was disappointed that this book was from princeton since i enjoyed their book, 'word smart.' If you want to prepare for the sats, get '10 real sats', word smart, and any other vocab books. memorize the vocab from wordsmart and take the 10 sats and go over the answers. since most people will score about 700 or more on the math concentrate on the verbal and try to get also around 700.
This book is really awesome. I am telling u...it really helps. My score went from a 810 to a 1350. It is great.
