Great purchase

It did contain stray mark but were all in pencil. Overall my first purchase ever was a great find to be able to study.

newest SAT study guide

AT last....a new study guide....but it only has 3 additional tests which differ from the last version of this guide. Would that ETS would publish more current tests more frequently!!

SAT book

With the practice tests inside and how it is written, so my son can understand it, it will help him greatly.

Kaplan SAT Prep

If you have a child who needs specific concentrations in a particular area, this is the book for them. You don't need to spend thousands of dollars to achieve high scores, just a few extra dedicated, disciplined hours.

Great buy for practice, not strategies - No Solutions

My 5 star rating is not an overral review, but a review for the quality of their practice tests. If you are looking for practice tests, this is the book for you because it inclused tests written by ETS, and after taking the March 12 exam I can tell you that the practice tests and actual tests are very similar. While this book is awesome for practice tests, it is not the book to buy for strategies. Which the book includes some strategies, CollegeBoard is not going to release a book that tells you tricks to solve the problems they test you on. Also, the solutions to problems ARE NOT in the book, and you mast pay for them through their online course. I did this, but I don't think you should have to pay for them.

Great Start to Studying for the SAT

"The Official SAT Study Guide: For the New SAT" by the College Board is where studying starts for the famous high school exam. It is their test, and so it is important to see their prep materials. Stop with that, and you'll sell yourself short. However, if you skip this book, you will miss out on the insiders version. What Good Is This Book? The College Board version presents their bias. That's good because they know what is coming up in the next exam. The practice tests are so important. The College Board gives you eight of them, but try to take more. Again, start with this book, and move onward. What's missing? The good stuff. More exams. Other voices. The reality is, the playing field for this test is not level. Those taking courses on SAT test taking have an advantage, as do those plowing through Kaplan books, or those published by the Princeton Review. Skip those options, and expect a lower score than you could otherwise have received. What's really missing? The hardcore strategies. The College Board isn't intending to make the test easy. They want it fair, and to be an exam of true gained knowledge. While this noble desire eventually will be the real indicator of collegiate success, the point of most students for taking it isn't about potential success. It is about money, and/or acceptance to the school of their choice. Get into that incredible college, and continue the same effort in your courses, and the world is yours. It starts with getting accepted. Who Needs To Buy a Book? The SAT is coming up. If you're bright, you'll do well. Doing well isn't good enough. If getting into the local state college is your goal, consider it done. Get something above a 'C' GPA, and something above 1,000 or 1,100 and you meet your goal. If scholarships, or acceptance at a better school are important to you, then you need to study. Good students study. Great students study a lot. "The Official SAT Study Guide: For the New SAT" is part of that studying. I fully recommend "The Official SAT Study Guide: For the New SAT" by the College Board. Anthony Trendl editor,
