Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Barron's is the best SAT source available. I have used and reviewed the Kaplan, Princeton Review and Collegeboard sources and Barron's is the most rigorous and demanding of them all. If you want sources that make you feel good about your abilities then choose any of the other three! If you want to be challenged and pushed to really strengthen your scoring potential then choose Barron's! The only catch is the cost, but it is in line with the other products so I can't complain too much!
