    Barron’s SAT 2400
    Aiming for the Perfect Score

    If you’re an academic high achiever and plan to attend any one of America’s very best colleges, this book was written especially for you. The authors skip past obvious test-taking strategies and focus your attention on the do’s and don’ts of smart test-taking. The purpose is to help you score 700 or above on all three sections of the new SAT—Critical Reading, Writing, and Math.

    A score of 2100 or higher will set you apart from the crowd, placing you in the top 5% of high-achieving students throughout the country. That virtually guarantees your acceptance to the most prestigious and academically challenging colleges.

    Here is that extra leg-up to help you get those scholarships and gain admission to the college of your choice.

    I think this is a good book for you to prepare for the SAT.
    Hung Nguyen
    Even though some colleges weigh your SAT scores pretty heavily, don't forget that it's just a number and it really won't matter that much once you're in college.
    Allison
    The questions do not, as a rule, appear any harder than in any of the general SAT prep books for the average student.

    With the help of this book, as well as some difficult classes, I made a 2350 on the SAT (Math-800, Reading Comp-800, Writing-750). I only took the SAT three times: June 05, June 06, and Oct 06 and used this book for the last two times. I improved my score 370 points and I loooove this book.

    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone taking the SAT that can already make a decent score and can handle most of the basic questions. This book does what is says it will and shows you how to handle the tricky level 4 and 5 questions. I like how the math is divided into topic sections (algebra, geometry, stats..) and how it provides tips for each type of question that you'll see in all three sections. However, don't expect this book to teach you what you don't already know although it does review stuff with you and show you how to work the problems. It's important to take hard classes and learn all you can. That way you don't have to study a book like this or cram vocabulary words but can simply review the tips and topics.

    Even though some colleges weigh your SAT scores pretty heavily, don't forget that it's just a number and it really won't matter that much once you're in college. It's not like you're going to tell your grandchildren what a great score you made. Well, I hope I was some kind of help. Good luck and don't stress out =).

    I didn't take any review courses so I depended soley upon this book and practice tests for preperation. It offered tips that I would have never thought of on my own, especially with the Critical Reading sections. I didn't use the math sections, but did use Writing and Reading extensively and was happy with both. I highly recommend this book. With it I went from a projected score of 2110 on my PSATs to a 2310 (1560 for Math and Reading) on my SATs, first try. Big help.

    I know Mrs. Rosalyn Teukolsky, she is the computer science teacher at the high school where she taught me computer science. She is a fantastic math teacher and really knows her stuff. Nearly all of her students get 5's on the Computer Science AP exam due to her skill at teaching and the strategies she has developed over the years.

    Speaking of strategy, Mrs. Teukolsky loaned me a copy of her book while I was studying for my SAT's and that is exactly what this book is for. It says right in the beginning that this is a book for those that know the majority of the material already, and that just need that extra edge to get a 2400. The tips, tricks and strategies in here are great, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels that need that edge to get a perfect score.

    So, after scoring a 2040 on the SAT as a sophomore, I was looking for ways to ante up my skills. Barron's 2400 had what someone like me, who knows how to take standardized tests, needs -- practice with the hardest level of questions. This book is useful, but you need to couple it with a bunch of practice tests to test out your newfound skills and strategies (I recommend the official SAT book) in order to maximize your score.

    So if you read all the strategies in the book, take lots of practice exams while applying the techniques you've learned, you'll probably raise your score significantly. This strategy worked for me, and it can probably work for you, too!

    I got a 2340 on my second try : )

    When I bought this book, I expected it to be better than the Official SAT Guide at preparing me to get a 2400. However, after going through the first few chapters, I realized the questions are HORRIBLE.

    I've gotten an 800 in both Critical Reading and Writing sections on the SAT both times I've taken it, and really just wanted this book to help with math. But, since I bought it, I figured I should look at the Critical Reading and Writing sections anyway. I was surprised to find how different the practice questions are from the actual SAT-Barron shouldn't be able to say the questions are based on "real SAT" questions, because they are obviously not.

    The questions seem very basic, like the authors didn't want to spend much time at all making them. They throw in a lot of (the same) "difficult vocabulary words" into the questions, but these really can't hide the fact that the questions themselves are extremely lower-level. And once you've done a chapter or 2, you know ALL the vocab words Barron uses-for instance, the word "myriad" was used in three separate questions in the same section---definitely NOT what happens on the actual SAT.

    The answers for the questions are even worse. No answer seems to be the "best", they all seem to be equally correct or incorrect. The explanations for the answers are weak, with some of the "correct" answers so obviously wrong that I couldn't believe they even attempted to explain why they were right. The answers would NOT be correct on the SAT, so by learning what Barron deems "correct", I'm sure a lot of people would do worse on the SAT than they should.

    On the otherhand, the strategies are refreshing and a lot different than the typical strategies given by other guides.
