Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received this book. Spent only 2 min. reviewing it and immediately noted an error.

The description clearly says 100 practice tests. I had made out a study plan for 100 tests.

Right on the cover of the book it clearly says 50 vocabulary practice tests.

No big deal but wanted you to know.

I will review the book later after the student has used the book.

First off congratulations for someone that took the time to change the description in the "description" section above.

Thanks to Jack Limpet for reminding me I had said I would do a review of the book at a later time. Below is my update.

Book did not work for the student I was working with. However, the content and approach is clear. Buying this book is also a lot, lot cheaper than the approach I finally found that fit my style.

Please see my review of The Ultimate SAT Supplement: KlassTutoring solutions to every test problem in The Official SAT Study Guide (2nd Edition) to see a plan that worked for the PSAT and, by June 1st, I will post the SAT results in that review.

My objective is to enable the student to get the highest score they are willing to aim for with the least amount of work and financial investment.
