Overview

Cracking the SAT, 2001 Edition by Adam Robinson, John Katzman

The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT is very different from getting straight A's in school. They don't try to teach you everything there is to know about math and English — only the techniques you'll need to score higher on the SAT. There's a big difference. In Cracking the SAT, The Princeton Review will teach you how to think like the test makers.

This is accomplished by teaching you how to:

  • Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
  • Solve SAT analogies when you're not sure what all the words mean
  • Tackle verbal problems by using clues in the questions
  • Cracking SAT algebra by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters
  • Ace the geometry problems by "guesstimating" and "sketching"

    *This book includes 2 full-length, simulated SAT exams. Plus, it will show you how to go online and take an additional exam with instant analysis. The questions in these tests are exactly like the ones you'll see on the actual SAT, and every solution is fully explained.

    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.
