This book was extremely helpful. I got a 1260 on my PSAT's and used this book to prepare for the real SAT's. Most sources tell you that your score will increase between 50 and 100 points. I got a 1450 on my SAT's!!! I was shocked. And I'm not at all a straight A student; I do fairly well in school but this book completely prepared me and helped me increase my score by 190 points! I would recommend it to anyone looking to significantly up their score!
