    If you're looking for SAT practice test books? If so, then the Blue Book (College Board's Official SAT Study Guide) is best.

    I bought Barron's SAT 2400, and found it useless compared to the Blue Book. Get the Blue Book.

    i actually already have the blue book and did all the tests. On my tests i usually get around 2100, but i want to find a way to get it into the 2200s.

    I have Kaplan 2400 and it is pretty good. As I was looking through Barrons, I noticed that most of the "help" came from strategies, none of which on test day I will really be following. Kaplan gives both examples and strategies on tackling every hard question type on the SAT.

    This topic is two years old. I think, the op is no longer interested in which is better.

    I used Barrons and got a 2340...but one thing I found annoying was that the questions are way harder than normal SAT questions so I just found myself skipping the practice questions and doing Princeton Review tests.
