It's the proven guerilla guide: The students who developed "Up Your Score all aced the SAT and went to the colleges of their choice; and the new guest editors, Jean Huang and Swetha Kambhampati, each scored a perfect 2400 by following UP YOUR SCORE principles. Packed with attitude, rock-solid knock-' em-dead strategies, and laugh-out-loud humor, this is the book for students by students, the book that diffuses the stress and actually makes test-prep fun. 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. Straight from triumphant test veterans, here is: How to prepare the essay in advance. Six hundred key vocabulary words (and proven tricks for actually remembering them). The best way to fill in answer circles and other strategies for saving precious minutes. Plus, tips for maintaining concentration over the long haul, why it's always better to guess than leave a question unanswered, and a recipe for energy-boosting Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars (and how to smuggle them into the testing hall).
Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
I bought this book for my daughter. The best thing it does is take the fear out of the SAT's. (I ended up reading it too - it's a really funny book!) There are tips you won't get anywhere else, from how and when to guess to what to wear on test day. Very engagingly written, almost makes the SATs fun.
