The New SAT has changed drastically from past iterations, and the only books we recommend for the New SAT are listed below:
Erica Meltzer Critical Reader Erica Meltzer Grammar College Panda Math
College Panda Writing Steve Warner 28 New Lessons – Advanced (for those scoring 600+ and want an 800!****
College Panda 10 SAT Practice Tests
PWN the SAT: Math Guide
****Steve Warner decided to make several books that are distinguished by difficulty. Here is a further breakdown:
For those scoring below 500: 28 SAT Math Lessons to Improve Your Score in One Month – Beginner Course: For Students Currently Scoring Below 500 in SAT Math 3rd Edition
For those scoring between 500 and 600: 28 SAT Math Lessons to Improve Your Score in One Month – Intermediate Course: For Students Currently Scoring Between 500 and 600 in SAT Math 3rd Edition
And the advanced version is on the table above.
Now, of course, the age-old question: “Do I need prep books to get a “good” score on the SAT?”
Well, my friend, there’s no right answer to that question. But if you ask me, and most likely many others, prep books are by no means necessary to achieving a so-called “good” score on the (formerly called) Scholastic Aptitude Test. There are plenty of free resources online:
For a quick refresher on MATH concepts, /r/SAT’s very own /u/CatoTheFI produced a guide that very well reflects the SAT, hell he even included ACT — a 2 in 1 bonus… for free! Perhaps Steve Warner should take notes, eh? Here is /u/CatotheFI’s SAT Math Guide. For those wanting a reading and writing guide, /u/CatotheFI has mentioned that it’s in the works! Hip hip hooray!
Of course, I’m sure a household resource that ALL virtually everyone has heard of is:
Khan Academy! Great place to get authentic and accurate questions resembling what you would see on test day (sorry Barron’s).
Unfortunately, I and many others cannot verify the credibility of any other free resources out there that claim to help you prepare for the SAT. I do not recommend CrackSAT.net as I believe their questions do not accurately portray what you would see on the New SAT.
