I spent a nice chunk of uninterrupted SAT time today (unusual for me).
Most of my time was spent reading two Kaplan SAT books, one from each end of the spectrum:
- Kaplan SAT Strategies for Super Busy Students (henceforth referred to as the Captain Underpants looking book)
- Kaplan SAT 2400: Advanced Prep for Advanced Students
While there is some overlap (i.e. the Kaplan "method"), the material is varied enough to make both worth it, in my opinion.
The Super Busy book contains lots of lists, which I'm a total sucker for:
- 100 Essential Math Concepts
- 21 Most Common Grammar Errors
- 5 Most Common Improving Sentence Errors
The 2400 book digs deep into the nuances of the SAT.
I have no idea if any of this is working, but I can say that I'm enjoying the Kaplan books enormously. I need to test myself soon with some Blue Book so I can see if any of this is working, or if I'm just having a good time.
