My daughter is in the 8th grade and is taking the PSAT 8/9 this morning. Do you know anything about this test? Since it is new, there wasn't a lot of information about it. We mainly used regular PSAT study materials. She is our oldest, and we plan on having our other children take it as they become 8th graders.
Not much about the PSAT has changed; it is still very similar to the old one. You can read more about the PSAT changes here: http://www.princetonreview.com/college/psat-changes#!tab1
Hope that helps.

Anyone can take an AP test, even if they have not taken an AP course. The tests are really hard, really long, and the student needs to be prepared.
