Kept sharply up-to-date by the guest editor, "Up Your Score" is a complement - and a reality check - to the institutional reviews by Princeton and Kaplan. It's the book that injects attitude into the dry business of test prep, fending off the anxiety of the SAT with peer humour. A rich and lively vocabulary section is filled with examples that kids will relate to. The math section delves into the eight core ways the test covers the subject, plus offers problem-solving techniques. The writing section addresses the 13 most important grammar rules to know. And "Up Your Score" shows how to "psych out" the test: How to think like the SAT. How to prepare the essay in advance. The best ways 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, what to wear on test day, and a recipe for energy-boosting Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars.
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!
Fair. We ship the same or next business day and provide a tracking number with tracking info. Slightly more wear than a good book but still a very usable copy, accessories like DVD's, CD's or toys may be missing, we use stock photos for our listing so actual book may have different cover.
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.
