Uncovering the Secrets of the SAT
Debbie Stier

"It all began as an attempt by Debbie Stier to help her high-school age son, Ethan, who would shortly be studying for the SAT." To find the best study method, she tried them all - Kumon, Kaplan, Princeton Review, a private coach, and IQ and study-prep tests. In a quest for the elusive perfect score of 2400, Stier took the test seven times. Not only is her story amusing as she pits her scholarly tenacity against her teenager's apathy, but it's full of tips about test preparation and what really matters and works to raise your score.
