Is the Baron's SAT prep book math section really that more difficult?!? I NEED ADVICE!!

Rayfusion7Rayfusion7 Registered User Posts: 38 Junior Member
The first book that I've started with when reviewing for the sat was the princeton review. On the math section of the practice test I would usually break 600. However this book only had a couple of tests, and when I was done with I invested in a baron's book. When I took the practice tests from the baron's book I noticed that this was far more challenging and work intensive than the princeton review. I have consistently struggled with the material and time when it came to the practice tests. I was wondering if it was just me or are the baron's book very difficult from others. How much different is the baron's book from the real sat. please give me advice.

    Barron is known to be more difficult particularly in the last couple practice test. If you can get 700+ in the last practice, you may even get 800 in the real test.

    That's good because I got really scared when I all of a sudden went from a 670 in Princeton review to 510 in barons for the math section

    My D1 almost cried after the last practice on Barron as she did worse than previous practice. She ended up getting 800 in the real test.
