4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Strategies but hard tests July 12, 2013
This is an excellent book for SAT tutors; a average-to-good book for students using this book as their sole source of preparation; an excellent book when used in conjunction with the SAT exams published by the College Board.

This book teaches critical thinking strategies which are essential for not only the SAT, but other examinations you will take in high school and college. I cannot recommend the strategies highly enough. Other SAT test prep books teach you tricks. The Gruber book teaches you thinking strategies which will serve you for years to come.

I will focus especially on the math content, as that is what I usually use this book for.

-Critical Reading Section-

The questions in the review tests are a little harder than the actual SAT. The critical thinking strategies are useful.
The vocab list is extensive, and perhaps a touch overly difficult, but it would be a good list for a student to work with if they want to do very long term preparation (12+ months plus) for this test.

-Writing Section-

The writing section is an afterthought, in terms of content review other than the practice tests. The section on writing a good essay is helpful (see below), but the guide lacks numerous practice questions for the multiple choice writing questions. The practice test questions are a touch harder than the actual SAT questions.

However, this book has a section on writing the essay which would be helpful for many students. It also has a section on grammar that should be required reading for every high school student in this country. Grammar is not taught extensively in schools anymore, and this book gives you a back to basics course in the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the Best Test Prep Resource! October 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very satisfied with "Gruber's Complete SAT Guide 2014!" I used Gruber's materials over 30 years ago myself when preparing for the MCAT. I like Gruber's analysis of how to study for the SAT, not just memorize. A comprehensive set of tools are in one volume.

My son is able to get a read on his strengths and weaknesses by taking the tests. We both like the explanations for the math questions. The format of this guide is extremely user friendly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tool June 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have not fully used this book yet. I used it as home school curriculum addition. I used it to teach my 8th grader vocabulary and grammar. From what we used so far, I'd give it 5 stars. It is very large and overwhelming. The 4 stars is because it would be very hard to pin point the important things to cover in preparation for the SAT with this much information to sort through.
