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 http://mathguide.pwnthesat.com.

The Problem When you miss a level 5 question on an SAT practice test, you need to practice a dozen or more just like it. But where are you going to find the questions? The Solution CrushTheTest. Suppose you miss a hard probability question. Start with CrushTheTest Probability I. There you find 8 probability questions, ALL as hard as the hardest real SAT questions. CrushTheTest Probability II has eight more, even harder, problems – think two or three level 5 SAT questions rolled into one. Not enough? Hone your skills to a razor-sharp edge with two super-hard problems in CrushTheTest Probability III. You won't be missing any more SAT probability questions after doing all three CrushTheTest levels. But what about remainders questions? You're covered. Prime numbers? We've got that too. Functions? But of course. There are 21 CrushTheTest categories and a total of 378 questions. Each category has three difficulty levels: hard, harder, and hardest. The 21 CrushTheTest Categories The best way to become an SAT expert is to do many questions in a row of the same type. Here are the CrushTheTest categories, each with 18 questions: Algebra; Fractions; Functions; Word Problems; Lengths and Angles; Areas; Triangles; Points and Space; Prices, Percents, 2D, 3D; Units; Averages; Probability; Mean, Median, Mode; Divisibility and Primes; Properties; Remainders; Digitology; Graphs and Charts; Reasoning; Combinations; Sequences. Who Should Use CrushTheTest? If you score above 600 on a practice test and you are looking to break 700 and perhaps get a perfect score, CrushTheTest is for you. You don't need to be a genius to get an 800 on the math SAT; you do need practice. With 378 difficult, occasionally-amusing questions and clearly-explained, in-depth solutions plus tips and tricks and hilarious SAT history, CrushTheTest offers students a hard-to-beat test-prep experience.
