Recommended Books

If you are a student in the 500-600s (or want to get there), buy Phil’s brilliant book, The New Math SAT Game Plan. It contains just the right amount of information. He’s posted his first three chapters on his website. (Those alone are worth the entire price of the book!)

If you are in the 650-750s (or want to get there), check out Mike McClenathan’s PWN the SAT: Math Guide. He’s hysterical, inappropriate, and memorable. And it is HARD. He’s scored an 800 in math and if you want to do the same, master this book. He overtrains you so the SAT seems like a cakewalk in comparison.
