Up Your Score The Underground Guide to the SAT by Larry Berger, Michael Colton, Jaja Liao, Manek Mistry

Kept sharply up-to-date by the guest editor, Up Your Score is a complement - and a reality check - to the institutional reviews by Princeton and Kaplan. It's the book that injects attitude into the dry business of test prep, fending off the anxiety of the SAT with peer humour. A rich and lively vocabulary section is filled with examples that kids will relate to. The math section delves into the eight core ways the test covers the subject, plus offers problem-solving techniques. The writing section addresses the 13 most important grammar rules to know. And Up Your Score shows how to psych out the test: How to think like the SAT. How to prepare the essay in advance. The best ways to fill in answer circles and other strategies to save precious minutes. Plus, tips for maintaining concentration, why it's always better to guess than to leave a question unanswered, what to wear on test day, and a recipe for energy-boosting Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars.
