About the Author:

Loren Meierding was previously a system engineer designing defense and transportation systems for Hughes Aircraft Company. His studies specialized in analytic philosophy, epistemology, logic, and philosophy of science.

Review:

Just as the training routine of a professional athlete is more intense than the competition he is training for, the problems discussed are somewhat more challenging than the New SAT itself. Hence, a student who completes the book will find the New SAT itself a breeze. The book trains the student to quickly assess each problem and move to a solution without wasting precious time on dead-ends and detours. To improve a student's SAT score, standard test preparation advice says eliminate as many possible wrong answers from the multiple choice responses given and then guess among the remaining answers. Meierding demonstrates that this strategy is usually counterproductive: it lowers many students' scores rather than raising them. If the SAT were a 26-mile marathon, the test-preparation services coach students on how to run the first 20 miles. Meierding shows how to run the last 6, which determines whether the student gets into the college of his choice or his fall-back school. The difference between students who perform outstandingly on the New SAT and those who merely do well is not knowledge but strategy. Your high school has provided the knowledge; Meierding has the strategy. (Dr. William H. Heller Ph.D., associate professor of mathematics, University of Texas Pan American)

If math is one of your strong suits, and you want to get the very best score possible on the New SAT math component, Meierding's book is for you. ... This book should produce impressive results. (VOYA)

Focusing on the more difficult kinds of SAT questions, this study aid provides 375 worked problems with an explanation of the thought processes needed to solve them, and divides them into 20 chapters on fractions, polygons, geometry, work problems, functions, probability, and data representation. (Scitech Book News)

This exemplary book provides students with an abundance of well developed problems covering a wide spectrum of mathematical concepts. Many of the problems are quite different than the typical textbook problems. Problem solving strategies are carefully chosen and the solutions to the problems are clearly explained. An exciting feature in this book is the author's suggested alternative solutions to many of the problems. The 'key capabilities' and 'chapter summaries' provide the user helpful hints for success on the SAT exam. The students who choose to use this book to prepare for the SAT will not only do better on that exam but will also learn much about the skills of problem solving. I highly recommend this commendable book. (Dr. Lee N. von Kuster, professor of mathematics education, University of Texas Pan American)
