Barrons 2400

<p>I suck at critical reading so I purchased the barron's 2400. I'm consistently getting 7-8 correct on the 11-12 section questions. What would this convert to on the real test? I've tried to find out what that would equal out of 67 questions and scale it and I was like a low 600 or so, but I think the Barrons 2400 questions are harder. Anyone have a range? I just want to see if I've made any improvements. </p>


<p>yes the barrons questions are usually all level 4 and 5 difficulty. if you are getting 8/12 or 3/4 thats is very good and should tranlsate to a 700+ score assuming you get the easy ones right</p>

<p>really?! I had the same problems too, I just thought I was going to do badly and then suck it up</p>

<p>for all of you that have Barron's 2400 what do you think of it? worth buying for ppl who want 700+?</p>



<p>Are you sure? I got a 55O on the april sats & i just started using this book for a week...albeit that i'm a decent english student and my writing is not bad.</p>

<p>Anyone else can confirm this? (not that i don't believe you, backfire, but i don't want to get my hopes up too quickly...if you know what i mean)</p>

<p>I don't believe an 8/12 would necessarily translate to a 700+. A very rough guess might be about 650-680. The book seems to have good coverage of the CR and Writing sections, but the math chapters are a little lacking (not all topics are covered, and it could use more practice questions). For a more comprehensive coverage of the math section, I would recommend adding Kaplan SAT 2400 and Gruber's (the math sections) into the mix.</p>

<p>I'm not worried about the math section...maybe a tad bit on the writing section. But I'm mostly worried about the CR section.</p>

<p>I did the last set of problems...I got a 21/32. Does that look like a high 600 on the real thing?</p>

<p>You can't just base your score on a portion of a whole section.</p>

<p>You're cheating yourself.</p>

<p>The last set of problems = a mixed variety of problems (sent comp, short & long passage questions)</p>

<p>barrons doesn't have a full set of 67 questions</p>

<p>anyway...i just want to have an idea of where i'm at...and if this stuff is working.</p>

<p>I point is that you need to take a practice test.</p>

<p>Yeah. I know I have to do that, but I don't have time to take it all together. I'm just wondering whether I should spend my time taking a practice CR test...or start hitting the Barrons CR Workbook. I barely have any time these days.</p>

<p>CR tests after you learn all the Barron's CR tactics.</p>

<p>Huh? I didn't get what you said.</p>

<p>Anybody else have a general idea?</p>

<p>he said to do the CR tests AFTER you read the Barron's CR book first</p>

<p>Oh ok. I tried the Barrons CR workbook. This is getting depressing. I got 18/24 (although 3 were dumb mistakes I made). I thought I was getting there...till I bombed the next section.</p>
