From the Author

If you're prepping for the SAT -- this book is a must. Most students attack the SAT like a normal test; that's a big problem. The SAT has some unique properties, and you need to know them. Know how to attack questions. Know how many questions you should do to obtain the score you seek (did you know the biggest cause of lower scores is doing too many questions?).

This manual will teach you HOW to take the SAT, and HOW to do the types of questions the SAT asks. The SAT is not a straightforward test of your knowledge. The material you already know, but the way it is tested you have never seen before.

Professor Dave's Owner's Manual for the SAT will equip you to obtain the highest SAT score you are capable of. Score improvement on the SAT is not easy - this manual will make it seem that way.

In addition to the manual, all purchasers enjoy access to the private library/forum set up by the author. It contains thousands of practice questions, full practice SAT exams, and more importantly - support from the author and other SAT tutors. Any question from any source can be discussed. Is there a better way to attempt this question? A faster way? You can also have your essays graded and evaluated.

A superb tool for SAT preparation, Professor Dave's Owner's Manual for the SAT will maximize your score. Best of luck!

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a must have book if you are looking for a systematic approach to the SAT.

- Clear, concise breakdown of each section of the SAT
- Procedure, test taking skills, and pacing are covered
- Comprehensive grammar section
- Great strategy for critical reading
- Excellent vocabulary list
- The companion website is a great supplement to the book

- I would love to see more drills in the book

I haven't had a chance to go through the math section yet, but if the reading/writing section is any indicator I am sure I will be pleased.

In summary this is the best SAT book I have found.

This is a must-have book that teaches students how to "own" the SAT test. The methods are well-communicated and work. I have found that the book not only tremendously helped my son for SAT achievement, but positively impacted him with respect to his every day speech and writing. Forget the rest....go with Dave.

More About the Author

The author teaches and tutors the SAT and ACT tests in the New York City and Long Island areas. He is the author of six (and counting) non-fiction books for test preparation. Dave is known for his effective and accessible style, and his students enjoy tremendous score gains using his methods. Schools, clubs, academies and learning centers use Dave's methods through the combination of Teacher's Edition/Student Workbooks. The author teaches seminars on his methods, and he conducts training for instructors/tutors who wish to master this methodology.

The Whining Mill is Dave's first foray into fiction. One of Dave's favorite authors, Dean Koontz, gave an interview that inspired Dave to start one of the novels he had bouncing around in his head. One year later, The Whining Mill was born. We hope you enjoy it.
