The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about math and English--only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. "There's a big difference. In Cracking the SAT & PSAT/NMSQT, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:
- Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
- Master the 250 most important SAT vocabulary words
- Nail even the toughest sections: Analogies, Quantitative Comparison, Critical Reading, and more
** This book and CD-ROM package includes 6 full-length, simulated SAT exams: 2 in the book, and 4 on CD-ROM. Plus, The Princeton Review will show readers how to go online and get additional practice. All of TPR's sample test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual SAT, and TPR fully explains every solution.
