About the Author

Cardinal Education is an educational consulting and tutoring company based in Palo Alto, CA. Guided by a philosophy of fulfilling students' academic potential in a way that boosts skills and confidence for life, we work to maximize successful middle school, high school, and college admissions outcomes. While some of our methods defy "conventional wisdom," we have a proven track record with a broad range of students: the Ivy League bound to those wishing to avoid community college, the self-motivated to the intransigently jaded, and the profoundly gifted to learning disabled. We have a passion for expanding students' dreams and helping them attain their goals. Cardinal Education believes in the social value of a strong public education system and sponsors pro bono programs to bring private sector expertise to bear. However, government fiscal policies are shortchanging public schools of opportunities: activities, sports, variety of classes, advanced classes, student-teacher ratios, and counseling departments. The "private school imperative" means that despite economic trends, admission to private school is becoming so competitive that it necessitates standardized testing excellence.

One of the books that I've been using for SSAT math is the older version of Barrons SSAT with plenty of word problems! This book is perfect-filled with plenty of practice questions! Some reviewer mentioned how this book does not have the explanation like the Kaplan. I think they have different purposes. Kaplan/Princeton/Peterson is great for students who are beginning to study on SSAT/ISEE. For students who solved all the books out in the market, and who wants more practice in solving math word problems, this book is just perfect!

The amazon reviews of this volume are what made me purchase it in addition for the For Dummies volume and the kaplin Catholic High School Entrance Exam prep volume. Our daughter commented that had she not completed the math problems in this volume she never could have finished as much of the math section of the exam as she did. She commented that she knew how to do the problems, but because she had practiced problems so similar to what were on the test she knew exactly what to do. Our daughter is interested in engineering programs that require additional testing as a part of her placement if she is excepted. She will be putting these materials to good use again for more tests come January and May.

Sometimes the best way to prepare for a test is simply repetition.
This large book does that well.
Our child could not have done better on the actual test.

Format: Paperback
I'm a tutor, practice test writer, and founder of ISEEpracticetest.com and SSATpracticetest.com. While this book does have typos which are frustrating for students, it is also a good resource for tutors - While I use our (Test Innovators) 5 full-length practice tests as our main tutoring resource, I go through this Cardinal Education text with students who need extra math pratice and assign them "homework" to do in between sessions. This book offers pages and pages of math practice which I use to help prepare students for the ISEE and SSAT. And while the 2nd edition of this text seemed to have big ugly Cardinal Education water markings on each page, it looks from the most recent texts that parents have brought in that the 3rd edition is again clean and easy to use. If you know of a better text for such math practice, do let me know!

Great! So nice to have tons of problems so that my students can get lots of practice. They need lots of repetition in order to remember how to do these problems on the test. And there are so many different kinds of problems that are just like the ones on the real ISEE.

There are, however, some problems. Some of the answers are wrong, and problems aren't put in order from easy to hard. After mastering easier problems, students end up having to do them again, along w/ the harder problems. Wastes time.

But this book is so much better than other books out there I would still recommend it over others.

Very helpful for preparing students for the ISEE, or for general review. Multiple worksheets for each topic, addressing a range of ability levels. Love the section on quantitative comparisons!

A great assortment of math equations. Son used to prepare for ISEE and worked very well. It is great that it can be used to study from for high school exams too.

I bought this for my son who is studying for the HSPT. While the book is comprehensive and reasonably well organized it fails to include any graphic representations of the math concepts presented. For a child who is a strong or gifted VSL this book will be useless. I wish someone would write a book with at least one clearly presented graphic formula in addition to the traditional long form version of problems. It would be revolutionary for kids like mine.

If your child is good at rote memorization and practice drills this will be useful. If your child is visual and needs manipulatives or graphics and often solves problems correctly without being able to show his steps or explain why, this book is not for you.

As per the comment from Cardinal Education, I have adjusted my review to three stars in consideration. Nevertheless, since Cardinal is located in the Silicon Valley, and is, therefore, inaccessible to probably 99% of all Amazon customers who live elsewhere in the country who may be considering this book, I feel that my review will be helpful to parents who will be unable to access the companion services that Cardinal Education offers. This book is suitable for highly motivated independent students who wish to drill and practice. If your child needs additional explanation or needs graphic representations, prepare to supplement this guide with personal instruction, lots of it. In addition, some reviews are not Amazon Verified Purchases - given that most of them are from reviewers in the S.F. Bay Area, one can assume they were in person customers of Cardinal's various education services, which is fine - but my review is based on an online purchase and in comparison to other study guides we have purchased to prepare for these tests.
