28 SAT Math Lessons to Improve Your Score in One Month(3rd Edition)
This book was written specifically for the student currently scoring more than 600 in SAT math. Results will vary, but if you are such a student and you work through the lessons in this book, then you will see a substantial improvement in your score. If your current SAT math score is below 600 or you discover that you have weaknesses in applying more basic techniques (such as the ones reviewed in the first lesson from this book), you may want to go through the intermediate course before completing this one. The book you are now reading is self-contained. Each lesson was carefully created to ensure that you are making the most effective use of your time while preparing for the SAT. It should be noted that a score of 700 can usually be attained without ever attempting a Level 5 problem. Readers currently scoring below a 700 on practice tests should not feel obligated to work on Level 5 problems the first time they go through this book. The optional material in this book contains what I refer to as “Level 6” questions and “Challenge” questions. Level 6 questions are slightly more difficult than anything that is likely to appear on an actual SAT, but they are just like SAT problems in every other way. Challenge questions are theoretical in nature and are much more difficult than anything that will ever appear on an SAT. These two types of questions are for those students that really want an SAT math score of 800. There are two math sections on the SAT: one where a calculator is allowed and one where it is not. I therefore recommend trying to solve as many problems as possible both with and without a calculator. If a calculator is required for a specific problem, it will be marked with an asterisk (*).
