    This book is wonderful! I had been using it at the SAT prep center where I work and finally broke down and bought my own copy. I use everything in it...the grammar review exercises, the sample essays with scoring, the practice tests. The questions are challenging and follow the SAT format closely. My students have never had complaints about the work from this book. The answer explanations are also easy to comprehend. Excellent!

    We provide this to our tutors (In-Home Tutors of Atlanta, In-Home Tutors of Orlando) to help prepare students for the SAT. This is at their recommendation, although some prefer the official CollegeBoard blue book. Lots of practice material and rational strategies and hints. It's a good price through Amazon too.

    I am an strong believer in the workbook style preparation, but this workbook doesn't emphasize what needs to be emphasized in a workbook, hence the so-so rating. First, a good workbook needs tons of practice drills. While this has 4 practice tests, if practice test were what I was looking for, then I would go to the "blue book" put out by college board, which has 10 tests. Moreover, the tests will mirror the actual exams better than any other book since it's made by the test makers themselves. Second, a good workbook needs to dissect the skills and concepts that are on the test and drive them home to the readers and give them sufficient practice that will translate into higher scores on the exam. But this book doesn't have enough content or practice on the skills and concepts. Third, a good workbook needs to have excellent explanations because increasing your skills doesn't come from empty practice alone, you need to be TAUGHT, and the only way teaching can take place in a book is through very detailed explanations. While the explanations are decent for the practice tests, there are no real explanations to the drills!

    Overall, this is ok, but there are better choices for workbooks and better choices for practice tests.

    I got a 2400, and I am pretty sure it was due to this book. On the writing section, I had gotten every multiple choice correct... and I got a 9/12 on my essay. I still got the 800, by some stroke of luck on the curve. This book targets specific grammar exercises in each section, so you become adept at recognizing the specific problems in every sentence. There is a plethora of multiple choice practice; I did not even complete the whole workbook.

    However, this points to one drawback: this book really cannot teach you how to write well on the essay. It only can offer you a few tips, and an example of two, but self-imposed practice is the way to go, and have others read your writing afterwards.

    I RECOMMEND this book if you need hardcore prepping for multiple choice. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this book if you are great on multiple choice (if you are, I admire you), and need to hone your essay skills.

    The book is the same as described. I found it very helpful for preparing to SAT test. Amazon's delivery as usually is very fast. But be ready to handle the book very carefully as if it is an antique book because of very poor paper quality! I keep it in its original postal package all the time in order not to tear pages.
