Carol White, SAT Instructor and Writing Consultant Philip Keller's refreshingly subversive tactics appeal to students and help them maximize their scores.
Professor Laura Harrington As a college professor and long-time test-prep tutor, I've evaluated the gamut of test-prep resources. This is, hands-down, the best math SAT book I've seen: clear, articulate, and accessible without being condescending. I was so impressed that I researched the author, and found out that he's won several teaching awards as a high school math and science teacher in New Jersey, which may explain this book's effectiveness: it's written by a teacher who can anticipate student questions and areas of confusion, not a desk jockey. After using it with a few kids, I have decided to make it the required math text for all my student clients.

My sister and I both used this book again while studying for the GREs. Mr. Keller's book is not geared for the GREs because the point system is different and the questions are more difficult, but a lot of the same principles still apply. Being a little bit more focused this time around, I took the time to study his techniques and it really helped my score. I am naturally much stronger in the verbal section, but I scored 100 points higher in the math than the verbal on the GREs. My sister and I were both accepted to Ivy League graduate programs after using this book.
I would highly recommend buying this book for any student studying for the SATs. It was much more helpful to me than Barron's or Princeton Review books, and was a quicker read. The language and writing style is also helpful in keeping those who may not be so enthusiastic about studying for the SATs engaged.
I've been tutoring for over 8 years-- and have scored perfectly on the math section both as a student in high school, and an adult on the revised test. This book simply doesn't cover enough angles. There are better books out there-- McGraw Hill's 50 Skills book is a better bet for students in the 500's and I'd say Dr. Chung's book is better for kids 700+-- there's also a book by Greenhall Publishing (Aceing the SAT I Math) that is probably my all around fav for the serious test taker-- someone who has more than a couple weeks to cram and learn a few strategies and tricks (which I don't think are suited for every test taker-- for some perhaps).
Real improvement on the test takes work, and actually learning how to do most of the problems, not skipping the hard ones and just being strategic (an emphasis in this book). When I tutor students I'm looking to teach them math, not quick fix strategies that may or may not work depending on the student (I have some students who get the hard ones right and the easy questions wrong-- the strategies in this book don't work for them!). But if you're looking for quick strategy, maybe you'll like this book.
This is far from a five star in my book-- useful as a tutor (who wants to have everything)! But not my first pick.
