hopskipjump Posted May 6, 2017 Share Posted May 6, 2017 (edited) useless or worth going through? I have two SAT-prep books that dd1 never used, since she was ACT-all the way. We have the Blue "Official" SAT and, I think Barron's SAT prep books. If dd2 were to take some of these tests just to start adjusting to the "idea" of standardized tests... and then we purchase the new books with the "revised" SAT info and she continued with those... would that be useful? Or better to start a hesitant test-taker off with the "NEW" SAT prep books? (she will WANT to take as many practice tests as she can get her hands on.) DD1 - I just threw books at her and she scarfed down the information in whatever format it was presented. DD2 - needs a little sugar to help the medicine go down. The plan right now is for her to take a practice ACT and a practice SAT without any prep. She won't know the score, but I will calculate is so that I can gauge her weak spots and we can start there. She'll prep for a while, and then take another ACT/SAT. At that point, I'll make a call as to which test she seems to favor and we'll go from there. I'm just unsure if these "old format" books are useless or not... :/ Which would be a shame... lol Edited May 6, 2017 by hopskipjump Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
