I think going over the trickier problems helped my daughter become better at solving easier problems and also better at attacking more difficult ones. I would say go through Kaplan (great test prep tips and sample tests), go through Barron's and then do the actual sample test that is online. Give your child enough time to really go through the books (wish I had started my kid earlier than the summer before the test) with sufficient time to review incorrect answers and he/she should be ok.
Ps. My daughter got into Tech
Okay, I did also have an awesome tutor from Central Park Tutors, who explained a lot of it to me, but, it was a good book.
Here's the trick you have to do ALL the exercises in the book. You can't just read it. And its good to use extra old tests from the handbook as well. One prep book is not enough for sure! or it wasn't for me...good luck!

A good book for an enthusiastic student who is driven to work on their own. Recommended for self-starters willing to carefully review their own work.Published on June 6, 2013 by Lucky Reader

Not bad. Not enough...but it does address the issues. I would have preferred the option to download pdf files and larger practice tests. However, it was acceptable.Published on December 4, 2012 by Diana Newman
I took the test, and the stuff inside this book was not on the test. So, two stars.... Also, the explanations were hard to understand..Published on November 24, 2012 by Marcia Collins
