The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT is very different from getting straight A's in school. They don't try to teach you everything there is to know about math and English -- only the techniques you'll need to score higher on the SAT.There's a big difference.InCracking the SAT,The Princeton Review will teach you how to think like the test makers. This is accomplished by teaching you how to: Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you Solve SAT analogies when you're not sure what all the words mean Tackle verbal problems by using clues in the questions Cracking SAT algebra by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters Ace the geometry problems by "guesstimating" and "sketching" *This book and CD-ROM package includes 6 full-length, simulated SAT exams: 2 in the book and 4 on CD-ROM. Plus, it will show you how to go online and take an additional exam with instant analysis. The questions in these tests are exactly like the ones you'll see on the actual SAT, and every solution is fully explained.
