The author could make this book half the size and get rid of questions non-existent on either test and it would deliver the same benefit--without having you spin your wheels for questions you will never see on either test.
It's meant to be a review book for the SAT specifically, and I see people reviewing it as a go-to math book. I don't think it's that, but it does have exactly what the SAT offers. It's great if you're proficient in math already and want to see what the SAT has to offer in a single book and gives real insight into the exam with quick tips, examples of questions, and well-explained answers in the examples. If you're a student who needs a bit more help in math, it might not be best book.
But I was mainly using it as a review to freshen up my skills specifically for the SAT. And in that end, it worked great.
However, I’d like to point out the following minor areas for Mr. Phu in order for him to further improve the book.
First, in the Table of Content, the subtitles for each chapter do not align with those used within the specific chapter. Also, it would be very helpful for the readers if page number for each subtitle is added in the Table of Content.
Second, on pp. 267-268, the answers to problem #1 and #6 should be positive as area, pi, radius, height, volume can’t be negative; the answers to #29-31 should have been further simplified.
Other than that, we didn’t find other errors or typos in the book.
Brovo to Mr. Phu’s effort in writing this book!
