WE GET RESULTS
Students who take our six-week SAT course have an average score increase of 140 points (verified by Roper Starch Worldwide).  The proven techniques we teach in our course are in this book.

AND IF IT'S ON THE SAT, IT'S IN THIS BOOK
The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT is very different from getting straight A's in school.  We don't try to teach you everything there is to know about math and English--only the techniques you'll need to score high on the SAT.  There's a big difference.  In Cracking the SAT & PSAT, we'll teach you how to think like the test makers and

*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 question
*Crack SAT algebra by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters
*Ace the geometry problems by "guesstimating" and "sketching"

This book includes two full-length sample tests that will help predict your score on the SAT and PSAT.  The questions in these tests are just like the ones you'll find on the real SAT, and we fully explain every solution.
