I have to recommend this book to anyone preparing for the SAT. This book is funny, original, and helpful, a nice alternative to the dry, straight-forward material you'll have to read through in most other test prep books. I recommend it mostly for the vocabulary in it, because their definitions are all funny and clever plays on words, and they actually help you remember it a lot better.

It helped me widen my vocabulary but its math and writing lessons were far too easy compared to the "real thing".

Hilarious and packed full of gotta-know info for the SAT. Nice to have something fun to read to space out those harder, heavier study books. But its not just all fun—it makes it easier to learn and remember important info. B-) Definitely recommend. My only complaint is some crude humor.

If all I did to prepare for the SAT was read this book, I would be confident.
Worth every penny.

My mom made me read this to prepare for taking the SAT in the 7th grade (?!!?) and it was actually pretty helpful. I'd imagine it was more interesting than most other books on the subject. 2 stars for writing, 4 for content.
