"Anti-Xiggi" Method

<p>I used the "Anti-Xiggi" method; I used PR, Gruber's, Bluebook, Barron's, McG. Hill, and Rocketreview.</p>

<p>I got an excellent score. </p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>I cannot see how your method is anti-Xiggi, if there is such a method. Xiggi recommended Gruber's for Mathematics Sections, Blue Book for P Tests, and Rocket Review for general review.</p>

What do you mean? Is it 2300+?</p>

</p>

<p>Nope, nothing like that, haha.
Just saying, I used a variety of sources.</p>

<p>Nice. However, I don't think you can beat Xiggi's method for efficiency.</p>

<p>Please explain.</p>

<p>I agree with Jakeus. Getting a good score without Xiggi's method is certainly possible---some don't even need to study for the SAT to get a good score! While buying more prep books MAY work for some people, I personally believe that you're going to end up wasting time and money in the end by having so many prep books. BB, Direct Hits, and silverturtle's guide are really all the average CCer needs for success on the SAT. But like many things in life, there isn't only one way to success. Xiggi just recommends what he believes is the most efficient way of studying for the SAT; at least, that's how I see it.</p>

<p>^ I agree with you, too.</p>

<p>I see. Thank you for your insights.</p>

<p>Haha, Kingsize. I find the anti-Xiggi term quite funny --and I am not sarcastic. </p>

<p>Fwiw, I believe that the confusion about the books to use remains as vivid as it used to be. Perhaps, I should go check what I wrote many years ago, but I thought I was pretty clear about the difference between practice books and source books. For instance, I think a dictionary is an amazing source of help, yet I would not recommend anyone to read it cover to cover. </p>

<p>One of my recommendations was to buy as many source books as possible, and ask your parents to let you self prepare as opposed to have to sit through an ineffective series of classes. On the other hand, I have always (and still do) advocate against the use of the PRACTICE TESTS published in the same source books. </p>

<p>While there is a lot more to say on the subject, I think it is best for everyone to find out what works best for each individual case. At no time did I ever claim that there was only one way to approach the SAT. The level of preparation and "aptitude" of students represents a HUGE range. Some might find a strategy appealing to them, but their friend find it ridiculous. In the end, we all are individuals taking a standardized test, and that should say it ... all! </p>

<p>HTH</p>

<p>^Wow, it is an honor, sir!!!

( I am not being sarcastic either, please trust me :) )</p>

<p>I had a variety of practice tests.
I followed your method so I convinced my parents not to sign me up for a prep class.</p>

<p>From what you wrote, that worked out well for you. </p>

<p>I hope your parents gave you part of the "rebate."</p>
