1) I like the layout and ease of use. The drills seem to match what the College Board has released in their 4 practice tests.
2) The book clearly went to press before some changes were made by the College Board. It includes information that is not up-to-date (e.g. they reference a 4-point Extended Thinking question which the College Board is not going to use. They will still have some Item Sets, but each question is worth 1 point.)
3) I think they overuse their Plugging In and PITA strategies. Although a few questions (2-3) in the practice tests released by the College Board could be solved this way, this book solved every single contextual question in the Heart of Algebra Drill 3 this way. It is clearly not the fastest way to answer these questions, especially if they appear in the No Calculator section of the test. Also, they explained the strategies using questions that look more like the old SAT. They did, at least, also say you could solve the questions algebraically and offered a (weak) explanation.
4) In the introduction, they mention that the math test will be divided into a Calculator and No-Calculator section, but they make absolutely no distinction as to which questions in the practice drills might wind up where, until the very last domain - Additional Topics in Math.
5) The explanations are a bit weak - no real strategies, but rather just the basic steps to arriving at the answer. I don't think this would help my granddaughter who struggles with math.
6) There is no mention of the Formula page in the math sections. Students need to be reminded that the formulas are given on the test and that they should refer to it rather than trying to memorize all the formulas.
7) There are VERY few Grid-In questions to practice.
8) I think every SAT practice book should come with at least one full-length practice test and a scoring guide, even if the scores are only an estimate.
