Not as big as the other chemistry books purchasable so it is a bit misleading.
Secondly, I bought it slightly used which should have been more like completely used.
The answers were all scribbled in pen so I couldn't erase them and the pages were torn and written on.
Could only really use it for the info at the beginning and not the practice test...
Right after a chapter was completed in Chem class at school, son took the end of the chapter tests as well as other short tests. Difficulty level was o.k., I think an AP student should be able to do it pretty well. He couldn't finish the tests in an hour and also he scored around 750 in the practice tests. But he scored 800 in first attempt, but again it was at the end of the school year when he just finished AP Chem class. He also practiced the real test from the college board book which I think is a must for any SAT test.
As for my scores: my diagnostic test score from this book was about a 680. By the last test of the book I got a 770. I just took the SAT chemistry test a few days ago and I think I got around a 760+. I wouldn't know the exact results yet of course, not until a few weeks from now.
While this book is very detailed and organized,
it has some serious misprints and typos that often confused me.
(for example, some answer keys were definitely wrong and some explanations were totally irrelevent.. I am not saying this because I am a chemistry-wiz; others have agreed with me on these problems.)
With some major revision, this book could be a palatable review for SAT II Chemistry preparation.
Pros: Nice, detailed review and explanations / provides a "study plan" which helps you to prepare for the test efficiently (start at least six weeks before your exam date!)
A Diagnostic Test AND FOUR practice exams with answers
Will go very in-depth as to over-prepare you for the SAT (which is not a bad thing)
Cons: Typos, misprints
Overall, great for the price. I will update my review to reflect how I did on my October 2011 exam :D
P.S. If you have paid attention in your regular (school) chemistry class, you will find this book easy to follow.
