Hey guys. I live in Asia and SAT books are quite rare around here, I usually order them online.
I consistently get about 2 mistakes at best and 4 mistakes at worst in the Vocab section in CR.
Right now, I have a generally 800 Writing and Math, and CR is the only one I really need to work on. I consistently get 700ish, but am aiming for 750 or higher.
I'm taking in May and June. I'm planning to order the 2 direct hits along with 2 books full of practice tests (Mcgraw-Hill and Princeton, mainly for CR practice) from Amazon, but since I need it ASAP to review, I'm having it on fastest shipping, which costs a ***** all the way here to Asia.
The vocab books I've used before generally include: Kaplan SAT 500, Barron Vocab List (found in the general SAT book), Hack the SAT Vocab List, Kaplan Word Power 750.
I feel quite comfortable in the vocab section but those 1-blank ones with 5 difficult choices usually get me.
For those familiar with DH and maybe a few of the books I've used for vocab (those were the best I could find here), do you think DH will help me? Should I just get'em anyway?
If not, what other ways could I improve my vocab to make it perfect?
