I think this is the single most comprehensive SAT study book I've come across. I have Princeton Review and College Board's SAT books, too, but this is much more helpful. I've seen Kaplan's study books, too, but the Kaplan SAT book with 12 practice test is the only other book worth getting. By itself, the Gruber's SAT book has tons of practice problems and useful strategies for doing well on the SAT. I love the way the book is organized and the way the material is presented. I think this book by itself will guarantee a higher SAT grade, if you do the work (meaning, do the practice problems, follow the strategies, and take the practice tests).

Gruber's has an AMAZING math section. It goes through absolutely everything that you'll need to know for the SAT, with numerous problems after each specific section. It was a great refresher for me, considering that I never took geometry due to the fact that I moved around a lot during high school. I did think that some of the math questions on the practice test were a little too easy for the actual SAT though.

I can't comment on the reading and writing sections as that was not where I focused my review. However, I thought the reading and writing (especially writing) sections on the practice tests are much more difficult than those on actual SATs.

This book does a good job of testing a wide variety of skills, but it tends to fixate on certain question types not all-together common on the SAT. I use this book for tutoring, and I do not use the lessons in the front, nor have I looked at them, so I cannot comment on their quality, but the practice tests in the back of the book are very solid, well balanced (especially in the math) and generally comprable to the SAT, with some odd repetitive deviations. Worth the dollars, overall, for tutoring.

I tutor sudents for SAT math prep and ACT prep - AllPencilsDown.com and I use two books - the blue book from the college board and this Gruber book. The College Boards book is great source for practice tests but Grubers does a great job for a student who is already at a 650-700 and wanting to push higher. I have had several students that work through this book and we a able to get in the 760-800 range. Students always report back that they love this workbook.
