The Rocket Review Revolution is a wonderful book, which helped me get a great score on the SAT. Parts 1 and 2 - Basic Tutorials and Advanced Tutorials - include very helpful strategies for all three sections of the SAT. In Part 3 (the SAT Writing Test), I learned how to manage my time. This section also includes "100 words that really impress SAT graders," a list of common misspelled words, and specific tips for all parts of the essay. As for the multiple choice part of the Writing test, I learned about the errors most often tested. The critical reading section discusses exactly how to handle both short and long reading passages as well as sentence completions. The book also includes a list of the most commonly used SAT words - I memorized all of these words and received an 800 on the critical reading section. Finally, the math section is also well done - I got an 800! Many problems are interspersed throughout this section, which helped test my understanding. Furthermore, "the Best* Practice SAT Ever Created (*Most Instructive)" is very helpful. I definitely recommend buying the Rocket Review Revolution - your score on the SAT will certainly improve!

I am currently a senior in high school, and I started using Rocket Review when the results from my SAT prep class weren't up to where I wanted them to be. I was in the first group to take the NEW SAT on March 12th 2005. Becuase of the Rocket Review I scored a 2340 (CR 800, W 800, M 740). So far I have been accepted to Georgetown, Berkeley, and UCLA. I would have never had these choices without this book by an incredibly intelligent and experienced author (Adam Robinson). The book also includes a CD that links you to a helpful website that gives VERY ACCURATE and FAST scores for esays. Mr. Robinson keeps the website updated with changes and new info about the SAT. I have already written a review on this book (but it was with a less recent copyright), so I must assume that it has only gotten better!

Hey I'm a junior in high school right now and I bought this book to begin SAT prep and aid me along with classes. The author, Adam Robinson, writes in such a cool, down-to-earth, easy to understand was and he packs the book the extremely helpful tips/strategies. Not only is the book excellent, but so is the website. I was even able to contact Adam through the website and he reviewed an essay I wrote personally (he emailed me back a page worth of commentary on my essay and how I could improve it even though all I asked him for is what he would think it could score on the SAT). I DEFINATELY recommend this book! Look at the reviews on the older version of the book to get a better idea of what everyone thinks of it(There are more than 30 reviews for the 2005 edition).

I took the SAT's my junior year in High School. When I was looking to find books to help me before this I was semi lost. Everyone is told to buy the big blue book from the company that administers the SAT. I did this, however despite being great for having old tests to practice with there were not any other resources. I was in Barnes and Noble looking for test prep books because I was always anti-tutoring; I felt that it never really went any where you need to know how to take the test, plan your time, and know what to expect. I had never heard of the Rocket Review prior to this time, however I did approach one of the sales reps who claimed that she did know a thing or two about SAT test prep books. She had nothing bad to say about this book, she said that she recommends buying the blue books as did everyone else, but she also said that Robinson was the man who perfected the Joe Blogs tool. I shook my head as if I knew what that meant, and then she showed it to me in the Princeton Review prep book.

I am not here to knock any authors or books, but looking through the Princeton Review guide I did not see much help. I decided to take this book on, as my main source of preparation. The best part about this book, was reading the comments, and the way the book went around choosing a correct answer, and planning my time. I will not say that I would read this book for fun, however as a guide for the SAT, it is the best tool I could have found, and I have recommended this book to everyone I know.

It is hands down, the reason why I was so succesful with the best, it does not claim to give you 300 points for reading the book, and its not a heavy read at all. But using this guide as a resource can only help, and it helps a lot.

So if you are a parent, or a student. Great book, I have nothing but good things to say.

When it comes to coaching anxious high school students for their crucial college board tests, no one does it better than Adam Robinson, the standardized testing guru formerly associated with the Princeton Review.

Written in an appealing conversational tone, packed with sound, inciteful advice for tackling the new SAT, and including a valuable instructional CD-ROM, The Rocket Review Revolution is easily the best SAT guide out there. Mr. Robinson's online program designed to aid students in practicing for the essay portion of the test is an amazing bonus.

I'll tell you why ppl talk about the author himself in the review. You read it, and see for yourself. He provides an entertaining way for students to learn, incorporating jokes, etc. WHy don't you read the book before you make a stupid review

These reviews sound bogus... who wrote this self-congratulatory stuff? Should Amazon allow the author/publisher to plug his work so shamelessly?

Looks pretty transparent to me.

It is strange that so many Amazon reviews for this author's books contain the phrase "the author, Adam Robinson." Who would say that but the author himself? And who begins a book with the statement "This is the greatest SAT book ever written?" Creepy.
