It's the SAT guide that kids will actually enjoy using. And it's the one that works: The students who developed Up Your Score all aced the SAT and went to the colleges of their choice. Irreverent, credible, delivered with attitude, Up Your Score combines the best math, critical reading, and essay preparation with strategies and tips designed to help kids psych out The Test. Its witty, peer-to-peer voice—like getting advice from a good (and really smart) friend—makes the material so much easier to retain than the dry text of traditional test guides. And priced at $11.95, it's an economical alternative to expensive test-preparation courses, and an affordable addition, breath of fresh air, and reality check for the student who has a Princeton Review or Kaplan book.

Includes: How to think like the SAT. How to prepare the essay in advance. Six hundred key vocabulary words (and proven tricks for actually remembering them). Insider math tricks. The best way 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, and a recipe for energy-boosting Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars (and how to smuggle them into the testing hall).

FREE: An online diagnostic test from PrepMe.com and an iPod download that helps students learn the 600 key vocabulary words.
