By far the most comprehensive math test prep book. I've taught an SAT course in my high school for 16 years and have considered at least 7 other books. It includes strategies, lots of examples, and whole tests which are quite comparable to actual tests given by College Board. My students marvel at how many questions are almost identical to ones they find on the "real" test they take - the author is excellent at predicting just what students need to know, and then coaching them to understand just that!!

Better by far than the Kaplan or Princeton study books, Barron's problems are very/most similar to the CB SAT actual problems. If Math is your weaker part of the SAT, which it is for my son, try adding this and having them study weekly.
We set up Saturday mornings for SAT review only and it went along way to helping to improve scores in math. Add in completing the SAT Question of the Day from CB, once a month doing all that months problems (takes less than an hour), then you are well on your way to an improved SAT score.

Update, Well it works , it my son's SAT Math score from 680 which is OK o a 750 in october 2013. Would suggest you can move of +60 points easily by using Barrons Math workbook, it worked for my senior

20+ years ago, I wanted to go to grad school and had to take the GRE, GMAT, or LSAT. So I started with the GRE. In high school, I was misinformed about test prep. Like so many of the previous generations, I went along with the myth that a student could not prepare for the SAT. So, I didn't.

I remember well the day I took the SAT. And I'm still mad. I was an AP Calc student being tested on middle school math at best. It wasn't that I was not good at those types of problems, I was just rusty and ran out of time. So when I was preparing for the GRE, I got a hold of a Barron's math guide and did every problem over and over. It worked well enough to get me a 790.

Now that I tutor full time, when a top student finishes all of the College Board problems and asks, "What else can I do?" my answer is always the same, "Go get Barron's and get going."

This book does not cover everything, that would be too big. It does cover enough to score over 700. The difficulty level is spot on and sometimes a little tougher than the actual test, which is a very good thing.

How to use this book: First do every problem in the College Board study guide and make a list of the types of problems that you keep missing. Get tutoring, or look up lessons online, and learn or refresh the concepts of the problems you missed. Then go and do your weakest concepts in this book. Do not focus only on your strengths it is in doing the painful work on doing what you do not want to do that real improvement is achieved.

It might over prepare you and the content is pretty advanced but thorough. If you study very well with this, there is not reason why you shouldn't get close to a perfect on the math section.

Bought this for our college bound teen. Plenty of practice problems that were relevant to the actual test. Highly recommend to other students looking for SAT prep guides.

Great book for math prep for SAT. Nice to be able to carve out an area needing some work vs. the whole SAT prep. Very on point. Quick shipping, highly recommend!

I am a math teacher and I teach an optional after school or summer SAT math prep class. I have used this book every year so far (three years total) and love it. It covers every possible math topic. It breaks the concepts into small chunks and gives a wide variety of problem types. I would recommend this for a class or individual study.
