Barron's SAT vs. Barron's 2400 SAT (What's the Difference???)

<p>I was looking around for some SAT prep books and I saw two books, the Barrons SAT and Barron's SAT 2400. I was just wondering what is different about these two. The 2400 says it gives advice to score 2100+, so the other one doesn't? I'm a little skeptical of the 2400 one because it seems a little small, so does anyone know or can explain how they are different?
(I think Kaplan does the same thing too)</p>

<p>Thanks a whole lot</p>

<p>I'm not really sure about Barron's SAT, but Barron's 2400 SAT is pretty much a compilation of techniques that help you score high. It is thin but does go over material covered and provides tips for tricky questions. It should definitely be only a supplement though. I figure the Barron's SAT is more of primary prep book to study from.</p>

<p>Barron's 2400, by its name, is for those who wanna get perfect scores =) ha,
it contains relatively difficult questions and difficult words or something like that..</p>

<p>Barron's 2400 is a good book for honing your skills for a good score. If you are well prepared, but feel that you frequently make mistakes in difficult questions, then this book is for you. In other words, if you score around 2000 right now, this book will help you raise your score. But, if you are not prepared then this book is useless as it does not have complete practice tests and deals with, mostly, tough passages, math questions, and of course grammar. In that case Barron's SAT is the ideal book. As it starts from the scratch and finishes off with enough practice tests to prepare you well. </p>

<p>But, the tests from the collegeboard book are the most accurate.</p>

<p>barron sat=harder than the real thing</p>

<p>barron 2400=much harder than the real thing</p>

<p>Are the tests in both the books the same?</p>

<p>Barron's SAT has a 3500-word SAT vocabulary list. I own both although I pretty much just use the normal Barron's SAT which is pretty good. Managed to get my writing score from a low 600s to a mid 700s in like 4 days.</p>

<p>I don't think that it's good to have questions be too hard, because then, you'll rarely see them in the actual test.</p>
