PWN is back, and better than ever. The PWN the SAT Math Guide was created to help ambitious, highly motivated kids maximize their SAT math scores. Do you crave a higher score? Are you willing to do a little hard work to achieve it? Good. I knew I liked you. Read this book from beginning to end, with a pencil in hand and a calculator and an Official SAT Study Guide by your side. When you’re done, you’ll be able to approach the SAT with confidence—very few questions will surprise you, and even fewer will be able to withstand your withering attacks. Stand tall, intrepid student. Destiny awaits. Updated for the New SAT This new edition of the Math Guide has been updated, rather painstakingly, to reflect the realities of the new SAT coming March 2016. This book was not rushed to market to take advantage of interest in the new exam. I took my time, and hopefully I got it right. Chapters are broken into five major sections: Techniques, Heart of Algebra, Passport to Advanced Math, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Additional Topics in Math. Each chapter concludes with a reference list of similar questions from official practice tests. Practice questions are designated as either “Calculator” or “No calculator.” Students will be forbidden from using their calculators for one whole section of the new SAT. Emphasis is placed on nimbleness—the ability to approach problems in multiple ways to find the one that works best. Calculator solutions and shortcuts are provided where appropriate. Join me online Readers of this book are encouraged to register as Math Guide Owners at the PWN the SAT website. There will be video solutions and other bonus content there. Signing up there will also give me a way to get in touch with you if I make book updates. See details at

With the completion of my last publication, the AP Calculus prep book, all of my math books, including SAT Math, SAT II Math Level1 and II, and AP Calculus AB.BC are now complete. While creating this series of math texts has brought great pleasure to my career, my only wish is that these books will help the many students who are preparing for college entrance. Since 1992, I have had the honor and the pleasure of working with numerous students and realized the need for prep books that can simply explain the fundamentals of mathematics. These books are built on many years of research and experience in each field. Most importantly, the questions in these books focus on building a solid understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Without understanding these solid foundations, it will be difficult to score well on these exams. These books emphasize that any difficult math question can completely be solved with a solid understanding of basic concepts. As the old proverb says, “Where there is a will, there is a way.” I still remember vividly one fifth-grader who was the last in his class who eventually ended up at Harvard University seven years later. I cannot stress enough how such perseverance of the endless quest to master mathematical concepts and problems will triumph. Persistent effort in finding answers to simple and complex mathematical questions is guaranteed to yield fruitful results. You may sometimes find that the explanations in these books might not be sufficient. In such a case, you can email me at [email protected] and I will do my best to provide a more detailed explanation. Additionally, as you work on these books, please notify me if you encounter any grammatical or typographical errors so that I can provide an update version. Per requests from students all over the world who have benefitted from my publications, I am currently working on a video of this series. You will be able to view my classes via internet in 2013. It is my great wish that all students who work on these books can reach their ultimate goals and enter the college of their dreams.

The Perfect Score Project

One Mother's Journey to Uncover the Secrets of the SAT

Author: Debbie Stier

Publisher: Harmony

Page: 304

View: 6353

The Perfect Score Project is an indispensable guide to acing the SAT – as well as the affecting story of a single mom’s quest to light a fire under her teenage son. 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. Aware that Ethan was a typical teenager (i.e., completely uninterested in any test) and that a mind-boggling menu of test-prep options existed, she decided – on his behalf -- to sample as many as she could to create the perfect SAT test-prep recipe. Debbie’s quest turned out to be an exercise in both hilarity and heartbreak as she took the SAT seven times in one year and in-between “went to school” on standardized testing. Here, she reveals why the SAT has become so important, the cottage industries it has spawned, what really works in preparing for the test and what is a waste of time. Both a toolbox of fresh tips and an amusing snapshot of parental love and wisdom colliding with teenage apathy, The Perfect Score Project rivets. In the book Debbie does it all: wrestles with Kaplan and Princeton Review, enrolls in Kumon, navigates, meets regularly with a premier grammar coach, takes a battery of intelligence tests, and even cadges free lessons from the world’s most prestigious (and expensive) test prep company. Along the way she answers the questions that plague every test-prep rookie, including: “When do I start?”...”Do the brand-name test prep services really deliver?”...”Which should I go with: a tutor, an SAT class, or self study?”...”Does test location really matter?” … “How do I find the right tutor?”… “How do SAT scores affect merit aid?”... and “What’s the one thing I need to know?” The Perfect Score Project’s combination of charm, authority, and unexpected poignancy makes it one of the most compulsively readable guides to SAT test prep ever – and a book that will make you think hard about what really matters. From the Hardcover edition.

The New Math SAT Game Plan is Phil Keller's classic, refreshing and somewhat subversive guide to the math SAT, updated to meet the challenges of the revised SAT. As you follow the Game Plan he maps out, you will learn a more creative way to approach this test, while also reviewing all of the necessary math content. You will learn the best way to manage your time and maximize your score. And of course, Keller still teaches those classic methods that will help you to evade some of the algebra on this test! You can see more about The New Math SAT Game Plan at Mr K's blog: Be sure to check out the Alternative Solutions to the Official Practice Tests! Here are some excerpts from reader reviews of the previous edition. These were all from verified purchasers -- you can still see the old listing on Amazon if you don't believe me :) NelMom said: .... After less than two weeks of concentrated practice using this book, she did the SAT test for the 3rd time. Her math score shot up 150 points from her highest previous score. The improvement in her score pushed her to a level that qualifies for merit scholarships and Honors Colleges. Thus far, our $16.95 investment has translated into 4 year merit scholarship offers from 3 schools equal to a total of over $200,000 and we haven't even heard from the rest of the colleges yet. So I can honestly say that buying this book has been the single best financial investment I have ever made. The book is nothing less than BRILLIANT! PHYSICS BOSS said: Awesome SAT (and PSAT) math book!Thanks so much, Mr. Keller!Just found out my son got a 76 out of 80 on the PSAT math section. Training with your New SAT Math book was a big key to his success. KHH said: It was very simple to follow and easy to understand. I ordered for my daughter to boost her SAT math score, but much of it will help for any multiple choice math test she takes in the future. It has made me feel like even I could do well on the SAT math section. Mradkins said: It has fantastic score-raising tips that I would have never thought about. It is also very effective in teaching and reviewing quickly with methods that work best on SAT.It raised my score significantly, and helped me better understand some math! Rahman said: Within two days, I've seen TREMENDOUS improvement for myself ! I improved from, 500 to 640 WITHIN 2 days!!!! REALLY HELPFUL Sam Rolfe said: With exposure to only the first half of this book, my daughter caught on to what the SAT math is all about. She quickly grasped the concepts presented for attacking problems and actually liked applying them. An "AH-HA" over and over again. If you have stumbled onto this book you are very fortunate.
