Up Your Score: SAT: The Underground Guide, 2016-2017 Edition by Larry Berger, Zachary Mandell

No longer will students be able to skate by using their older siblings' study guides, which means the need for Up Your Score: SAT has never been greater. And we're talking about a lot of kids. Last year, more than 1.7 million college-bound seniors took the test (the most ever), and 2016's group will be just as big. A complement and reality check to the mainstream study guides, this is the only book written by students (all of whom achieved perfect or near-perfect scores and went on to the colleges of their choice) for students. It's the book that kids recommend to one another, because it's as entertaining as it is effective. This completely rewritten edition of Up Your Score: SAT is a comprehensive course on how to dominate the new SAT. lt's packed with up to date information, smart strategies, and proven advice, and written with a sharp sense of humor and in the irreverent voice of a peer, engaging kids, not putting them to sleep. Here are tips on improving memory and maintaining peak concentration, insider math tricks to master, key grammar rules to remember, and how to think like the SAT. Plus, lots of ways to get time on your side, including preparing your (now optional) essay in advance and how best to fill in the answer circles. And, to keep that energy up, a recipe for Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars.
