7/13/2017 Amazon.com: SAT Prep Black Book - 2015 Edition: The Most Effective SAT Strategies Ever Published (9780615780849): Mike Barrett: Books
Mike Barrett has been helping people do better on standardized tests since he was in high school. In college, he worked briey for Kaplan but left when it
became clear to him that the Kaplan method was irreconcilably dierent from the way he naturally thought about the test. A few months after Mike graduated
from college with a degree in linguistics, his younger brothers needed help with the SAT, so he taught them his approach to the test. Word of their success
spread throughout their high school, and Mike was soon oering informal SAT tutoring to a few dozen of his brothers' friends. One of those students
recommended to Mike that he set up his own SAT preparation company. He thought about that for a couple of weeks and decided to pursue it. Since then, Mike
has used a variety of channels to help tens of thousands of students with the SAT, PSAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, GMAT, ISEE, and SSAT. He regularly travels to work with
students all across the United States, and consults with students all over the world through Skype. He speaks at live events as well, and is available for booking.
Mike's SAT strategies are so dierent from the traditional approach because he analyzes standardized tests from the ground up, rather than simply assuming
that they cover the material they claim to cover. In other words, most SAT tutors and courses teach the same math, reading, and writing skills that you learn in
high school, because they take the College Board's word then it claims that the SAT is a test of college readiness. But Mike has looked carefully at large numbers
of real SAT questions, and has determined that they have almost no similarity at all to the kinds of questions that teachers ask in school. According to Mike, SAT
questions rely on very basic concepts but present them in very strange ways. So students who want to improve their test scores shouldn't waste time re-learning
what they've already learned in school - instead, they should learn how the SAT actually works, so they can take their existing knowledge and leverage it into a
higher score. And this is exactly what Mike teaches you to do in the SAT Prep Black Book. If you want to understand how the SAT actually works, you need to
read this book.

The author also has a method for out smarting the test which he includes in his book. He lays out the test in
an easy to understand and concise matter. It's also divided by sections so for me, I spent a lot of time going
over the reading portion which was where my weak point. Despite this book being thick, it's a quick read. As I
said before, the information in their is concise with a few practice problems. This book teaches the strategies
and in order to truly practice them, I had to get the ocial sat book to nd all the real practice test. It was
worth it though!

Extremely Helpful
By Amazon Customer on January 10, 2016
Format: Paperback Veried Purchase
I'm nding the book extremely useful. It teaches everything you need to know about the SAT. The strategies
are gonna help you understand how the College Board designs SAT questions and how to answer them in
each section. The book also contains practice questions and answers keys with explanations as well so you can
pratice all the strategies. A review of all math concepts the SAT tests on is also included is really nice too. And
nally, make sure you purchase the Blue book to go along with the book like the author recommends. It's
gonna help you follow along for the practice questions, plus it's the only book you should practice with. This
Black book and the Blue book are all you need to prepare for the SAT.

inside the College Board's head and to become comfortable and fully able to nail the SAT. The book is
designed so that everything and anything you need to know to pass the SAT is somewhere in the book. It's
structured in a way that a student immediately gains condence and knows from the onset that they can do
it, that they can pass the SAT. I've tried Princeton Review, Kaplan, and Barron's, but none of these other
alleged "SAT experts" helped me as much as the black book. Highly Recommended!

Parents, stop pulling your hair out over the SAT prep!
By joanne mitchell on May 17, 2014
Format: Paperback Veried Purchase
Love this book and the strategies for attacking the SAT! Rather than spending hours, days, week, months of
random practice - my daughter and I read all of the strategies in a weeks time. Then she went back and re-
read each strategy, worked on a few questions, checked to be sure she was on the right track, and then took a
mini- practice test from the Blie Book. What a dierence this book has made in her comfort, condence, and
scores! I cannot recommend the book enough...for students and parents who are tired of the panic mode plan
of SAT test prep!

Get Ocial SAT Study Guide which accompanies this book


By Beauty queen on October 23, 2015
Format: Paperback Veried Purchase
If you get this book, you have to get the Ocial SAT Study Guide to which it refers. Otherwise this book
makes no sense. The detail this book goes into is awesome, but the student must be motivated to plow
through the huge mass of information. If so, he or she can't lose.
Worth the money for the motivated.
