Math 2 C HELP :]

suhhyunsuhhyun 18 replies7 threads New Member
So during junior year I learned practically nothing because the teacher was just horrible and went through Algebra 2 concepts throughout the year. But I still have to take Math 2 C because it's required for many colleges.

So are there any good review books for me to study during the summer for above 700?
A lot of people are saying princeton and barrons are good but which one is better for the student that hasn't learned anything during the year?

THANK YOU! ^^

    I used Barron's and got an 800, but you might also want to consider College Board's official prep book for SAT2 math 1 and 2.

    I used PR and got an 800. Skimmed the thing the night before. Don't worry too much. Get a good book and look it over.

    For Math IIC, you are kind of obliged to get an 780-800, due to the super-lenient curve.
    Barron's teaches you well, but do not use the practice tests!

    Barron's overprepares you. If you need to learn the material itself first, then I recommend starting with PR; the book gives a good -- albeit cursory -- review of the key concepts covered on the actual test. Also, regarding the Barron's tests -- while they're unrealistically difficult, they do give you good practice so that on exam day the test seems much more manageable.

    Just use Barron's and the official practice test. That's enough for an 800.
