    A few questions:

    Why the low-brimmed visor and Touchpad calculator? What other capabilities does the Touchpad have in comparison to the TI 84?

    Does it matter if i get Gruber's 2400 or the complete guide? Which one is better if I got a 610 in math and my goal is a 750?

    Very thorough guide. I was amused to see my grammar guide actually mentioned haha. Looking back, it's probably not as helpful as I intended, though. I didn't really explain things in my guide as much as I should have.

    Is the barron's 2400 grammer section also in either the "How to prepare for the SAT" or "Writing Workbook"(Both barron's of course)?

    I have raised my Critical Reading and Writing scores by about 100 points from a 620 to 720-740 on my best SAT test which I recently took but my math has been the same for the past 5 weeks (620- it fluctuates from 610-630). I have the complete Gruber's SAT guide with a bookload of math questions, equations, solutions, and stuff. Is that the right one? Because I am wondering how you were able to finish hundreds of problems in one day as you stated in your guide. Cuz I just can't believe anybody has that kind of mind power to sit at a desk for hours and hours upon a time (perhaps with a 15-30 min break here and there) and solve hundreds of problems in one day.

    Is grubers math actually helpful because this book is starting to annoy me with it's little stupid strategies which I can plug into my calculator in 2 seconds.

    And all I want to do is skip half the stuff I know

    So any vouchers

    Or to OP did you really go through all the problems in this book?

    Btw 560 math score although before the test my BB math scores were like 600;620;630;630;630;630
    I guess I got nervous and scared

    This is so nice of you to do! Why do you need a low-brimmed cap and earplugs?
