I think reviewing an SAT study guide is a good way to catch up on my 2012 book count.

To put it bluntly, I highly recommend Princeton Review for the SAT. I took no prep courses and barely any tests or practice questions outside of this book and its companion, and received above the score I was aiming for after my second attempt at the test.

I have checked out this book (2017 version) from the library to get familiar with what kind of questions they ask in SAT. As I did not really read this book, I cannot rate it.
