I'm a Harvard Graduate, a full-time tutor, and have been running a successful tutoring business for almost 10 years now, so I know what I'm talking about. (You can also trust that I'm a real person--check my other reviews!)
It's a shame that this book is out of print (and being sold as used for ridiculously high prices)--Mr. Robinson should consider selling the book as a PDF download instead.
A couple of issues to discuss- the author Adam Robinson may be excellent at sussing out academics and testing strategies, but he is not l33t at life. If you google him you will see several stories involving him suing an ex-romantic partner who he apparently signed over a big chunk of testing prep business to. The net effect seems to be that he has no motivation for updating this book. And worse its impossible to use the enclosed CD and practice software since its necessary to register it first with the now defunct website. So you cant unlock it at all.
So you will just be buying this book for its tips and its strategies. You will also need to buy another book to get a bunch of practice tests to work through since this only gives you one. Some people love the Reading section particularity- I thought they were all insightful. Robinson does have a way of reverse engineering these test to understand what is really being looked for and how to maximize your score.
I think its foolish to try to figure out what The One Book is. Robinson's plan and diligent study should be able to most college bound students to 650 on each section and turning out 10-12 essays consistently.
Robinson's thoroughness, breezy, readable writing style, and incisive advice combine to make this book a standout among a host of mediocre SAT manuals churned out by other companies. His advice on developing an effective test-taking mentality alone is worth the price of the book.
I'd recommend it to any bright, motivated student who wants to find useful advice for dealing with the SAT. Of course, using the Official SAT Study Guide in conjunction with this book is essential, so a student can work with real practice tests.
I'd also even more strongly recommend this book to SAT tutors - Robinson has dozens of insights about the test that clearly come from years of experience with the SAT.
Conversely, I wouldn't recommend this to students or tutors who are not serious and motivated about learning the SAT.
