Recommended prep book sat II literature?

<p>Can anyone recommend a prep book for SAT II Literature test?</p>

<p>I'm using PR for the May test. It is short and pretty basic but I don't think there are all that many specific strategies or shortcuts that are applicable to the literature test. Mostly just get comfortable with all the question types and the timing of the test, and then take as many practice tests as you can get your hands on and go over the answers. Good luck!</p>

<p>My son used Barrons. His English classes and a lifetime of avid reading prepared him well for most of the test. However, he hadn't studied poetry and wasn't familiar with some of the literary terms and rhyme schemes, etc. Barron's did a good job of preparing him for those. He really enjoyed reading it.</p>

<p>Editing to add: If you want to improve your literary analysis skills in general, a book I would recommend is "Reading Like a Writer" by Francine Prose. I learned about the book from a poster here on CC. I'm a parent and read it for my own enjoyment. My youngest is reading it now. My oldest had already covered these types of things in his English classes so didn't read it. It isn't a SAT prep book, so if time is tight you would probably want to focus on the prep books. Just posting this makes me want to go back and re-read it, though.</p>
