Customer Reviews

Great book that specializes in math only.
Denise M Carraher
If more students bought and used this book, their math score would improve dramatically and the SAT prep teachers would be out of business.
Amber McCann
This book is very thorough and effective, the questions have understandable answers, and it also offers good tips.

I've taken my SATs May of 2003, and October 2003. I scored 740 for May SAT and achieved 780 for October SAT. This book is one of the best books for mathematics. It depends on how well you use this book. Anyways, I'll tell how i used this book.

First week: I bought the book, went over the concepts, structures, tricks, strategies, one of 10 REAL SATs practice exam to know what score i would rank, read through beginning stuff.

Second week: Starting this week, I work on chapter 3, which deals with arithmetic skills and concepts. There are 8 lessons in chapter 3. I did 2 lessons a day starting Monday, and then Friday, I relax and review the lessons I've practiced. When you study, you must MASTER the concepts. Knowing the concept does not help.

Third week: There are 7 lessons in Chapter 4 which deals with Algebra. I do two lessons a day, for 4th day, when I only do 1 lesson, I work on my weaknesses in Chapter 4. Then 5th day, I review and study. When review, review lessons from previous chapters so that you won't forget.

Fourth week: There are 5 lessons in Chapter 5. I work 2 lessons a day, and then I review and study as usual.

Fifth week: Chapter 6 deals with Geometry, which was one of my weaknesses. So I decided to learn 1 lesson a day since there are 8 lessons and SAT strongly emphasizes a lot on geometry. So fifth week, I've done 4 lessons, one lesson each day. 5th day, I reviewed.

Sixth week: I've continued and finish last 4 lessons and reviewed as well

Seventh week: I went back to my routine plan and studied two lessons a day, and then reviewed.

Eighth week: I worked on Chapter 8, last chapter before practice exams. 5 lessons, study.

It does not surprise me that a SAT Prep teacher does not care for this book. If more students bought and used this book, their math score would improve dramatically and the SAT prep teachers would be out of business. Would I rather spend 225 dollars on a course for improving my score or 15 dollars for a book to do the same. I chose the book and boy did it work. I bought this book and used it for about 2 months prior to my second SAT. I knew I should have spent longer time with it, because I wasnt able to get all the way through this in-depth book. Yet I improved my math score by 105 points just by using this book only half of the way through. Imagine if I had the time to read the whole book! I am really impressed with Barron's. I strongly urge this for anyone who is looking to improve their SAT math skills....Oh and when I took the actual SAT I recognized about 90% of the math problems from the Barron's book. So yes it does help tremendously.

I've only completed 50 or so pages in this workbook, but it has immediately covered many of my weaknesses. Although this book is helpful to all (except for the very low or very high scorers,) I think it will be most beneficial to those who are currently in the 600's. I highly recommend this book.

Barron is always the best study tool for the SATs, and this math workbook is tremendously helpful. It not only gives you a million math problems to work through, it tells you little tricks and approaches to the math problems. Plus, you get explanations for all the problems. It's terrific, and helped me a lot.

I highly recommend this book. I first took the SATs in May of my Junior year. I got a 640 on the math. I then bought Barron's Math Workbook (2nd Edition), along with the College Board's 10 Real SATs, and re-took the test in December. My math score improved 120 points--- I received a 760. This book is very thorough and effective, the questions have understandable answers, and it also offers good tips. However, I would strongly recommend getting the College Board's book in addition to this one, as the practice on real tests in invaluable.

I'm an SAT tutor that actually takes the SAT three times a year. This is a great book and I wish all my students had the discipline to use it. The complaint from the other SAT tutor is not relevant to the objective of raising your score (which if you are scoring in the 500's can easily go up 100 points if you use this book in conjunction with the eight practice tests in the College Board Official Study Guide). This book remediates your math skill weaknesses which is the first step in preparing for the SAT math section. Once completed, (just the sections you are weak or rusty in)then dive into the eight practice tests in the College Board book which combine math reasoning with math skill. My other favorite resource for my students is Acing the New SAT I Math by Greenhall Publishing---an excellent resource to use by itself or in combination with Barron's. It's actually more comprehensive than Barron's and ideal for the student that is looking for a challenge and a score over 650. I would do the Barron's book first and then the Acting the New SAT I Math for each math section. Have fun!

This book really helped me review for the math section of the SAT. It covers every type of question and gives a thorough review of every math concept you will need to know for the SAT. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to raise your scores significantly.
