    I used this book for TJ admissions review with my child. This is definitely not a starter book. It was great for review however, especially the verbal section since that seems to be inadequately covered in most other books. We also used PSAT books for practice, but the verbal required for Science and Tech focused high school admissions test is just not all there within the PSAT curriculum (Scrambled paragraphs anyone?). It has good explanations not only within the sections, but also for each of the test questions in the answer guide. My recommendation will be to copy the answer sheet (the one your child fills out) instead of using the one in the book. This allows for re-use of the tests, and for practice on the same material weeks/months later if needed (or with another child).

    This reviewer is challenging enough but I think it should include more practice exams. I think it prepares you well for the format of the test, but by no means should this be your ONLY review book, as I think not all topics were covered by the review tests.

    Bought this for my 7th grader to use for SHSAT practice and although the problems were somewhat similar she said she didnt find that the content was remotely near what the actual exam was like.

    Format: Paperback
    This book was very helpful in preparing for the TJ Admission Test, especially in getting acquainted with the format as they are nearly identical. The scrambled paragraphs were especially useful for the test. I used this book alone to prepare for TJ, and got admitted. However, I was already proficient in the material covered by this book. This book should be used more like a supplement after the material is learned, because it does not really "teach" the material, just reviews it. Overall, the MOST useful commercially available book to prepare for TJ and SHSAT!

    This book should not be the sole study aid for a child preparing for the SHSAT. As a supplement to other study aids, it works well.

    A good book for an enthusiastic student who is driven to work on their own. Recommended for self-starters willing to carefully review their own work.
