11 Practice Tests for the SAT & PSAT, 2012 Edition
The books that are called "Cracking the SAT" include a HUGE section on preparing for the test, and it can be overwhelming. The books that say "11 practice test" have a chapter on preparing for the test, but the bulk of the book is just tests and answer keys.
I was very disappointed in a SAT book I bought. It was HUGE and my osn started reading it. Then he asked if he was supposed to be nervous and stressed out about taking it. When I told him no, he asked "Then why is the first 1/2 of it on how to cope with taking the test?"
Really, I was looking for something that would just give him an idea of what he might be looking at.
Now, I would probably never realize there were mistakes in it, unless there is inconsistency between the answer and the detailed explanation. If wrong possibilities were given in the multiple choice section, I would just assume I didn't know how to do the problem.
