From the Author:

Beginning in 2005, the new SAT I is more demanding than ever, and can no longer be aced with a few simplistic test-taking tricks. Huge score breakthroughs on the SAT I come only through building your core academic reasoning skills: you have to learn how to solve tough math problems, to read well, and to write well. Good colleges demand these skills, and have persuaded the ETS to re-write the SAT I accordingly. The College Hill Method, which we have incorporated into MCGRAW-HILL'S SAT I, is a remarkably effective system for building the reasoning skills at the core of the SAT I. MCGRAW-HILL'S SAT I includes everything you need to prepare optimally for the new SAT I: lots of good practice tests (ideally a tiny bit tougher than the real test, but otherwise as realistic as possible); review that is thorough but doesn't put you to sleep; lots of good answer explanations; practice that is engaging and that you can individualize to your specific needs; an effectiv! e, thorough and fun vocabulary-building system; and flashcards that teach you to think rather than just memorize. We have also included a thorough guide to, and lots of practice for, the NEW essay, grammar, advanced math, and critical reading sections of the SAT I. This book was developed with the help of some of the most brilliant teachers anywhere as well as the foremost experts in the SAT I to help you feel confident, relaxed and completely in control before taking the NEW SAT I.
