Study Guide Review
Update: There is a newer edition of this book.
This highly popular study guide is authored by SAT preparation guru and standardized test expert Dr. Gary Gruber. Gruber, who was motivated early on to analyze test-taking techniques (as a child, he received a below normal IQ test score, which he later managed to improve dramatically) succeeds in combining the provision of core SAT knowledge with strategic advice.
Gruber’s Complete SAT Guide is notable in that it follows a critical thinking approach aimed at giving test-takers the tools necessary for finding the correct answers in a short timeframe. In addition, the book is highly organized, has a clear writing style, and features five full-length practice tests. Highly recommended and likely the best of the best SAT books.
