    It is a far better buy than this test prep book.
    Dave66
    It certainly covered all the topics, but I think it went too detailed into some parts--distracting from the main points.
    R. Kemp
    The tests in this book are invaluable and though a bit hard, give very good preparation for the test.

    This book contain valuable material that not only gives a student an idea of what exam is actually about but really helps to improve the score. It does not replace a regular textbook or a good teacher, but still can help a lot. It is better tool for preparation to the math part of SAT then any general "all-in-one" SAT preparation book.

    The book contains 18 chapters which cover most topics well and three model tests. Those tests are very important preparation tools and are well worth the money.

    Chapter 2: "Tactics" is a really valuable chapter. It covers eight very useful approaches to solving SAP math problems. Exercises (with solutions) are good and as far as I can tell are pretty realistic. Three model tests are the real strong point of the book. Each of them is worth the price of the book alone.

    Shortcomings are few. IMHO ideas of chapter 2 are not sufficiently reinforced in other chapters. The geometry section can (and should) be enlarged as this topic usually creates for student the most problems.

    Also topics are treated as isolated without pointing to bridges between them (for example between trigonometry and geometrical problems).

    Some neat tricks possible because a graphic calculator is allowed on the test (and it is IMHO a must ) are not covered. This is an area that needs another book and a lot of dedicated self-study as few high schools use it. Usage of HP graphic calculator can improve your results considerably. But the problem is that you need to master it. Other things equal it is better to use the calculator that you know well and get used to.

    Highly recommended as an additional book to a good "all-in-one" SAT preparation book because math part of the test is the most important and most difficult part of SAT test. It can help to improve the score and at the same time save the family some money if (and only if) the student has adequate motivation to study himself/herself.

    My recommendation:
    If you're a math person, this is the book for you.
    If you're not a math person, do not get this book (unless you have a ton of time on your hands; and as long as you don't get too down on yourself when you're receiving 100-150 lower on practice tests than you will on the real thing)

    Going into the real exam, I figured I was going to get around a 650 because I had miserably failed all of Barron's tests. Luckily, I am not a nervous person going into exams, but if I was, I would have been VERY nervous about this test because Barron's terrified me. Not being a math guru, I did not understand some parts of this book initially. It certainly covered all the topics, but I think it went too detailed into some parts--distracting from the main points. I was very happy to get my 720. I am sure my relatively high score was due to my becoming accustomed to the difficult material in Barron's.

    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    Covers all the topics of the Math I, I just took it today and this Math book sufficiently prepared me for the questions I faced. As with all Barron's books the questions the questions in this were harder, so I was relieved as compared to the Math I test. The chapter reviews are very helpful and it dicusses each topic, although some are rarely even tested, this is a full comprehensive guide, and possibly one of the best guides you can purchase. If only I had had enough time to complete the entire book, it is a very helpful teaching and reference guide.

    I used this book in conjunction with the Kaplan Mathematics IC and IIC study guide and the Real SAT Subject Tests and I thought it worked really well. The tests in this book are invaluable and though a bit hard, give very good preparation for the test.

    I just took the Math IC test yesterday and I didn't encounter any questions I didn't know so that to me says this book was a success.

    Format: Paperback
    I did every practice question that review book had to offer, and then some. I was hoping for something in the 700s, but, of course, I just missed the mark by 10 pts. 690. A so-so review book. I would recommend purchasing the book of released exams by college board because the practice tests in the back of the Barron's is inaccurate.

    This was a very helpful book when I sat down to study for my SAT math 1 subject test. Each chapter is very detailed and includes example questions, explanations, and practice questions. There are also full practice tests in the back of the book, which really helps when trying to get acquainted with pacing and time. This book was a great success overall, and I really recommend it for anyone wanting to take the math 1 SAT subject test.
