A complement and reality check to the mainstream SAT study guides, it's the book that kids recommend to one another, because it's as entertaining as it is effective - over all editions, it has more than 585,000 copies in print. Up Your Score shows students how to: Think like the SAT; Master insider math tricks; Remember the 12 most important grammar rules; Hone their speed and timing; Be a better guesser (and why it's always better to guess); Vanquish anxiety and improve concentration; Best fill in the answer circles, saving nearly six minutes; Unwind with SAT Yoga Written with a sharp sense of humour in the irreverent voice of a peer, Up Your Score engages kids, rather than putting them to sleep. And, to really keep that energy up, it includes a recipe for Sweet & Tasty 800 Bars.
