Study Guide Review
This SAT preparation system from the Personal Tutor series is comprised of three workbooks and six DVDs with audiovisual materials (featuring videos and graphics). Together, they cover all the major sections of the SAT (Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing).
All of the materials in this set are exceptionally strong in substance yet easily digestible thanks to the informal, friendly, and motivational “personal tutor style.” The Math portion is particularly successful in providing clear analyses and explanations of the various problems that can be encountered on the test, breaking them down to bite sized units. However, the Reading and Writing sections are also notable for being both thorough and engaging.
In sum, this guide is highly comprehensive, contains many helpful practice exercises and answers, and well-designed visual material. It’s perhaps not as good as studying with an actual live personal tutor, but it comes very close. Best of all, it is also very reasonably priced.
