My friend scored somewhere between a 1600-1700 on the SAT that is out of 2400 and got into some great schools (more competitive than my top choice which is University of Kentucky.) He has a 2.99 GPA. He gave me one of his prep books. It is Kaplan. It says: SAT Premier Program 2008 Edition. So far, this book is FANTASTIC. He said that it is the best because not only does it tell you the answers, it actually tells you EXACTLY HOW TO DO THE PROBLEM. Which helps, because I never learned half the material on the math section in school anyway. I have the next 10 days off for winter break. My parents have signed me up for the next SAT and ACT. I really need to score a 2100 on the SAT and I am determined to obtain that score. I need to do well. I also need to score around a 30 on the ACT. I know I can do it. I do not want to do the prep classes because they are a waste, everyone says to invest in books. --- This is where you guys come in. See, the princeton review, it didn't help. My friends Kaplan book DOES. My question is...Are there any other books that are better than Kaplan's for the SAT I? I need a book that tells me how to do every single problem in the fastest way possible. I need major help if I am going to score high. And what about the ACT? Which is the best for the ACT? Please help guys, I know most of you have scored in the range I want to score as well.
