Three reviews with five stars between May 21 and May 26, 2007, all from LA, saying much the same thing? Beware.

I've known and recommended this book (in the first edition) for years, and was pulling up the book on Amazon to recommend to a friend whose son is preparing for the SAT and was surprised when I saw the low ratings, so I read the reviews and looked into the comments. As I mentioned, this is a second edition, and turns out the author is a highly successful teacher/tutor in the Los Angeles area with a long-standing tutoring company. (And interestingly, he also apparently has a background LSAT test prep questions for the leading prep company in the country.) It's not surprising to me that some of his students wrote enthusiastic reviews of the new edition right after it came out. For a more balanced set of reviews, check out the reviews of the first edition of the book.

I'm a pediatrician who is deeply invested in encouraging academic success in my patients. I start talking to them about books as soon as they can talk, I talk with parents about the area schools (since in San Diego there's a huge amount of choice involved in where you send you kids and it can be very confusing for parents to navigate), patients virtually always leave their physicals with an individualized reading list, we start talking about planning for college when they're in 7th or 8th grade and college selection by their sophomore year. I've never had a patient come back with negative comments about this book (and believe me, they tell me when they don't like something I've recommended!!! One parent told me that it alone had raised his son's score almost 500 points.

There are plenty of SAT prep books on the market, but this one stands out. Any experienced SAT tutor (I've been tutoring for 15 years) will tell you that the best way to practice is to do as many real SAT questions as possible. "Maximum SAT" recognizes this; after teaching a concept, it points students to real practice questions from the College Board's Official Guide (the best source of real SAT questions available). This book is thorough and easy to understand; using this book in conjunction with the Official Guide will help any serious student raise his or her score.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By walguy on June 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
The first half of the entire book, about 164 pages, deals with math section. But it only covers Geometry and Algebra I. Its content, however, is so basic that I don't know if anybody can get over 600 even after he masters this book.
Sentence completion section has barely 19 questions only with answers without any explanation.
Reading parts don't include any substantial material that might improve students' reading skill, but rather it explain about how to pick a right answer, which may not be a proven one. There are no explanations either.
Writing sections are also questionable. English grammar is barely covered in the book. This book explains some English usages that students need to know for SAT. But I don't think they are enough for students to get reasonable scores on the SAT tests.
This book is very disappointing.
