By this point, all the big test prep book publishers (I’m talking College Board, Princeton Review, Kaplan, and Barron’s) have released a book for the redesigned SAT. But not all New SAT prep books are created equal: some you’ll want to use in their entirety (though only a few), others you’ll want to use only […]
The College Board Blue Book is nearly 800 pages long. In this article, learn how to make it a valuable study aide in getting ready for the SAT!
This is like reviewing the Bible: The Official SAT Study Guide is so foundational to SAT success that it seems sacrosanct to suggest otherwise. So, instead of giving my five-star stamp of approval rating, I’m going to say something that might seem heretic: this book is flawed. Sure, the questions in this book might be […]
Kaplan has created a Jekyl and Hyde guide. On the one hand there is an excellent math section. Kaplan really takes time to teach basic strategies. On the other hand, there’s the verbal section. Read on to learn if this book will help you study for the New SAT.
SAT Expert, Chris Lele, reviewed the best SAT prep books on the market to come up with his annual list of Best SAT Prep Books. Save yourself some time and money by reading this post before heading to Amazon!
At the time of this review, Princeton Review has yet to release a general guide. A practice test guide will be due out shortly (I’ll review that as soon as I can). For now, we are left with lots of questions and very little guidance/strategies/concept review.
Sure, this is not a guide for the New SAT, which Barron’s is still working on. But did you know that the PSAT and SAT are the same content-wise. Sure there are subtle differences in the way the easy and difficult questions are arranged. For instance, the PSAT tends to have more ‘easy’ questions and fewer ‘hard’ questions (honestly most can’t really tell the difference).
Studying vocab isn’t really fun. Studying for SAT vocab is especially boring. Trust me, I hardly found any dry vocab book enticing. However, if you want to score well on the SAT reading sections you will want to challenge yourself to learn some fancier vocabulary. Given this reality, I have found the perfect set of books. Drum roll please… Vocabulary Cartoons Word Power I and II!!!!
Overview Unlike most of the other SAT prep books on the market, The Princeton Review’s 11 Practice Tests for the SAT and PSAT is not about strategies and test tips—it’s simply about questions. Lots of them. So if you bought this book, you are probably wondering how accurate these questions are, and how well they […]
