    i've heard barons is pretty hard and people typically do better on the real test.

    but if you are missing questions due to simple mistakes, then odds are you will do that on the real test.

    I used Barron's for math 2. On the practice tests I got mid 600s and on the real thing got 740. Don't worry if you're doing badly on the practice tests. I remember they were MUCH harder than the actual exam.

    i got a 690 on my one and only barron's test that i did and i got an 800, so you should be in good shape if you do a couple of other easier practice tests (pr, kaplan, sparknotes)

    In Barrons, I got mid 500's and I got a 710 on the real thing.

    If I recall correctly, Barron's math II review included crap on conics, which is most definitely NOT tested (things might have changed since I took it...)

    My advice is to study all the concepts in Princeton Review and you will be guaranteed to do well (770-800). However, if you have already mastered all the information in Princeton, it won't hurt to look over some of the "extraneous" topics in Barron's. It never hurts to over prepare with Barron's...just prepare yourself to be frustrated =P

    Best of luck!

    Oh my god, this makes me fell soo much better as well. I have the Barron's book and I keep getting scores in the low 600s (610ish), and I really want a score thats 750+. I'll look at some Collegeboard practice tests.
