I've recently switched to Barron materials because I find them to be more challenging for the good student, and I am very happy about the Barron's SAT 2400 book. The sample questions are more challenging than those in most books out there, and the authors offer additional reading strategies. I was very happy to see a calculator guide and a host of mathematical formulas (above and beyond The Pythagorean Theorem) for the student to remember.
I believe it comes with a CD with a practice test and additional practice questions.
AND, while it costs $30 at B&N, amazon carries it for around $10. Good deal.
Overall, I found this book to be an amazing resource. This was the only "prep book" that I used. Just take some practice tests using these strategies and figure out what works for you, as each person is different. :)
I highly recommend this for improving your SAT score. Remember though, that SAT scores are only one part of the admissions process.
Based on what I have seen through my experiences in high school, after a certain point, test scores and academics do not seem to matter. The difference between a 2400 and a 2280 is just a few questions. For this reason, I believe that any score above a 2280 is considered to be outstanding. What this means, is that if you score anything in this range, do not bother to retake the exam.Read more ›
If you're looking for more practice questions, get the College Board's official study guide or an actual workbook.
The book also does a mediocre job of explaining the answers. Doesn't say anything about the other answers, just states the correct answer, gives its definition, and then moves on. Not much to go off of that.
However, I feel that the Math and Writing sections are more refined. It seems like the book just tries to rush the Critical Reading part, but there's GREAT content about grammar and concepts that you need to learn for Math.
- Strategies that will help you to save time and move faster on the SAT
- Hard practice questions that helps you to prepare for those 700, 750 score style questions.
- Strong Math and Writing sections
- Not enough practice questions
- Appendix with vocabulary lists isn't that strong, just a handful per alphabet
- Weak Reading section
Note: I recommend getting the "Barrons Big Book" of SAT since they provide more sample essays and in-depth(highly detailed) insights. But since essay is optional from now on, this does the job perfectly!
