ISEE Prep - Recommended Books and Materials

Brian R. McElroy
The list author says: "Here is a list of my favorite ISEE prep books, in order of preference. Also, don't forget to go to the ERB website (www.erbtest.org) to register for the test and to download your free copy of "What to Expect on the ISEE.""
SSAT and ISEE For Dummies
SSAT and ISEE For Dummies
"Full disclosure:  This book was co-written by Vince Kotchian, a tutor who works for our company, as well as a good friend and colleague of mine.  That being said, this is clearly a step up from all the other ISEE books out there.  The practice tests are realistic, the explanations are clear and the chapters are well organized."
Cracking the SSAT & ISEE, 2012 Edition (Private Test Preparation)
Cracking the SSAT & ISEE, 2012 Edition (Private Test Preparation)
"Because "What to Expect on the ISEE" is not a very thorough guide to the ISEE, most students should buy this book as well. It is well-organized (despite having several typos, its lesson plans are helpful for tutors to review with their students) and its practice tests are realistic. It contains one Lower Level Practice Test, one Middle Level Practice Test and one Upper-Level Practice Test."
Kaplan SSAT & ISEE 2012 Edition (Kaplan SSAT & ISEE for Private & Independent School Admissions)
Kaplan SSAT & ISEE 2012 Edition (Kaplan SSAT & ISEE for Private & Independent School Admissions)
"As far as strategy and lesson plans, I prefer the Princeton book, but the practice tests are realistic and worth taking."
Word Smart Junior, 3rd Edition (Smart Juniors Guide for Grades 6 to 8)
Word Smart Junior, 3rd Edition (Smart Juniors Guide for Grades 6 to 8)
"Just like the original "Word Smart," this book is a great resource for developing one's vocabulary. The words in "Word Smart Junior" are geared specifically for bright students in grades 6-8, and are placed within the context of a fictional story that keeps kids interested."
McGraw-Hill's SSAT/ISEE, Secondary School Admission Test / Independent School Entrance Exam
McGraw-Hill's SSAT/ISEE, Secondary School Admission Test / Independent School Entrance Exam
"McGraw-Hill is a great resource for students looking for additional practice tests.  Also, unlike the below two books, this book contains an ISEE practice test in every level (Lower, Middle, and Upper)."
Barron's SSAT/ISEE (Barron's How to Prepare for the SSAT/ISEE)
Barron's SSAT/ISEE (Barron's How to Prepare for the SSAT/ISEE)
"The Barron's guide is full of helpful information (especially the math portion), but it only has practice tests for the middle and upper level ISEEs (no Lower level test)."
Master The SSAT* & ISEE**: Prep for Students and Parents (Master the Ssat and Isee)
Master The SSAT* & ISEE**: Prep for Students and Parents (Master the Ssat and Isee)
"The practice drills are useful as homework assignments, and the tests are (mostly) realistic, but this book has the same problem as the Barron's book:  there are only practice tests for the Middle and Upper level ISEEs.  If your student is taking the Lower-level test (incoming students in grades 5 or 6), then you are out of luck."
