Format: Paperback
As an international student from Dubai, it is not easy to study for a test that is actually made to evaluate American students. The only choice I had to go to a top school was to take the SAT. I have taken a course at Kaplan, and I realized that I was way behind. The material was too much for me. The vocabulary was too complicated and its sentences just didn't make any sense, because it seemed like it was not related to the definition. The math was also misleading. Even though the material was intense and confusing, I have blamed myself, because I thought that it was just the language barrier. Well, later on I decided to get a private tutor from Kaplan, and I paid a lot. When I finished taking all the private classes, I realized that I have wasted my money for nothing. In addition to that, I have taken the private session twice at Kaplan, and the results were the same, just a little improvement. Few months later, I have decided to go for Princeton Review, and I have taken the classes. I was pleased with book, but it was still difficult for me, and my scores did not improve a lot. At the end of the course I decided to have private sessions, and it wasn't very good, because we went over the same thing. Two weeks after my session ended, I went to one of my teachers, and told her my situation; she recommended me to buy the Boot Camp book. I searched the book online and I have the book with me now, and let's just say that my scores are sky rocketing!! Really..

I feel bad for not knowing about this book earlier, because the vocabulary is straight to the point, and the math is so simple to understand. Ms. Manning did a great job with this book.

I really recommend you to buy this book as soon as possible, so you can succeed with your SAT and get a perfect score or something close to 2400. In addition to success in the SAT, this book will help you with your placement tests before entering the college, and will be a great reference in the future.

I have helped kids improve their SAT test scores for seven years. I buy lots of books just to get different perspectives, but I have never written a review. Mostly because I think lots of books offer good information. I am writing this one simply because I was so disappointed in this book. Based on the reviews this book received I was really looking forward to reading it (maybe my expectatations were too high??). However, when I started reading it I felt the format was hard to follow and think many kids would lose interest fast. It's not that the information isn't good-If a student is already well above the 1000 point mark perhaps he/she could follow the format and not lose interest. If a student is not well above the 1000 point level, I believe the format will be difficult to follow. I will say that I think the vocab lists are good, if a student has ample time to prepare-

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Alex Merritt on April 10, 2002
Format: Paperback
Having used the information in this book, I highly recommend that any student planning on taking the SAT I test buy this book immediately. The information in it has been gleaned from years of study of the SAT itself and covers every type of problem likely to be seen on the test. My scores jumped 210 points after using the book as a study guide. I got an 800 on the math section and a 730 on the verbal section for a combined total score of 1530. I strongly believe that these high scores were a key factor in my being admitted to my top choice colleges. I could not have done it without this book, which is the comprehensive authority on taking the SAT.

Format: Paperback
This book really improved my SAT scores. My SAT scores were not the best, but my grades were pretty good. I was worried about not being accepted to colleges because of my low SAT scores. I read this book, along with taking practice SATs, and my scores improved a lot. I tried to read the book at least ten minutes a night. Repetition is the key. Just do the practice worksheets more than once. That helped me a lot. Because of this book and the class, I got into all the colleges I applied to! I highly recomend getting this book...it is great!

Format: Paperback
Boot Camp For Your Brain is all that it promises to be: a great study guide, a resource to use when stuck, and a very hard book to get through. It has "Boot Camp" in the title for a reason, but, like boot camp, this book gets results. I went up nearly 360 points using this book. When it comes to studying for the SAT, this is the best book that you will find.

My son just finished working with this book in order to prepare for the SAT. He is the third of my children to use it. He earned a perfect score, increasing his total score by 310 points. He is now very ready to apply to college. The book is a no-nonsense, clear guide for the steps students need to take in order to do well on the test. I highly recommend it! Maria

Format: Paperback
Great book, especially the latin roots, but you have to actually do them :) The author, Marcy Manning, also offers a course in the DC/VA area which I attended. We also visited all the DC museums and had a little family vacation while there. I think this course and book helped me get these high scores. I got 740 on Math and consistently get that on all the practice tests now. Great book. Great class.
