Kimberlee G. from MD wrote the following on 12/14/2009:
I used The Princeton Review's "Cracking the PSAT" in order to prepare for the exam this school year. I enjoyed the conversational tone the book uses to communicate to the reader. There are 15 chapters, including the 2 practice exams and detailed answers and explanations. In the first chapter, background information is given about the PSAT/NMSQT and how much you should plan to prepare, etc. Also in the first chapter is a Session-by-Session Study Guide, which I will describe later. The second chapter gives details about National Merit Scholarships, and general test strategies are given in chapter 3. "Advanced Strategies," "Sentence Completions," "Critical Reading," "Math Basics," "Math Techniques," and "Advanced Math Principles" are the titles of chapters 4-9. Chapters 10 and 11, "Writing Skills" and "Vocabulary," finish up the test preparation part. The remainder of the book is comprised of the practice tests along with their answers and explanations. A highlight of this PSAT prep book is that concepts are explained in down-to-earth terms. Once the concept is introduced, several drills are presented, giving you the opportunity to apply your knowledge (complete answers are supplied, along with detailed explanations of each problem). Now, for the real gem of this product: the Session-by-Session Study Guide, which is outlined on page 9 of the 2010 edition of "Cracking the PSAT." A total of 9 study sessions are detailed, and all could be completed in about 8-10 weeks. They are typically comprised of studying 1-3 chapters in the book, completing the drills in those chapters, and making flashcards for the "Hit Parade" (a collection of words most often found on the PSAT). Helpful hints, tips, and practical advice are also included in this test prep book. All in all, I believe that studying this book will really give you the "leg up" needed before taking the PSAT and that you will get the most for your educational dollar.
