Study Guide Review
Update: There is a newer edition of this book.
This Princeton Review SAT book promises to help you “crack” the SAT test. While this book has a thorough section on providing guidance with the substance of the test, it’s real appeal lies in its provision of key techniques and strategies in taking the test.
For example, it boasts strategies such as “Process of Elimination”, which trains test-takers to quickly eliminate incorrect choices on even the most difficult questions. It also uses the fictitious character Joe Bloggs, an average student with average grades, to illustrate how the questions on the SAT are designed to “trick” most examinees into picking the wrong answers and how these traps can be avoided. This book further contains practice tests with answers and explanations of the answers.
Overall, the “Cracking the SAT” approach is convincing and eye-opening, making it a must read.
