If you do not want to succeed or to study, the book will do nothing for you. So if you are a parent with a lazy kid, the book is no help. It is not one of these inspirational pieces that helps you out of laziness (for that, you should buy The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey).If you are an ambitious and organized teen, this is the Treasure Island of Tests.
Once you are motivated, the book offers plenty of advice on how to take notes, how to review your answers to a question, where to find free exercises, how to read efficiently. There are so many good tips that you should read and apply one at a time, then leave the book for two days and take another tip and apply it. Changing bad habits is difficult, it is why I see the book in the hands of teachers and parents rather than kids.

The people who wrote this know everything about tests: they give you specific advice for specific tests, tell you how to behave at the test center, anything you want to know is there.
The best use of the book is probably for young parents who had not a chance to go to college themselves: anything in the book that you can pass on to your young kids is worth it: it is all about forming good habits. As an example, there is a page on answering the right question. Sometimes teens get lost in sub-calculations and give the answer to that, they forget what the main question was or what is the unit needed in the answer. Read the question again before you write down the answer (the question was about Jack, not John, or it was in years, not in months...). It has to become a habit to be efficient. I imagine a parent or a teacher asking: "Did you read the question again before answering this?"and forming the mind of the student. It is more difficult to imagine a teen reading this, page 116, and deciding that it is what she will do from now on; but of course it is possible.
Powerful stuff for the serious inclined.

I was disappointed that the item was never received. I did receive a quick refund after contacting the seller, I was pleased by that.
