What's your rating for the prep books?

<p>please list from easiest to hardest,</p>

<p>and which book you should start with first.</p>

<p>im guessing princeton review?</p>

<p>PR is ridiculously vague, but has some good strategies 6/10
Barrons is convoluted, overly difficult 5/10
Gruber's math section is pretty awesome, sort of rigorous 8/10
BB is made by college board, features real tests 9/10</p>

<p>I've heard good things about Rocket Review
I'd start with BB and do a few timed tests (timed enviroment is crucial), see where you have to go from there. Math Grubers, CR and Writing Rocket Review.</p>

<p>Blue Book

<p>...in that order. I've compared all of them.</p>

<p>when you say difficult....do you mean the practice tests or the book in general?? just to clear it up</p>

<p>The book in general. Each page is way too busy and is basically an eye sore.</p>

<p>thnx for the tip.</p>

<p>yeah barrons is WAY too hard</p>

<p>Barrons, PR, and Kaplan are GREAT for lining a bird cage with, but that's about it.</p>

<p>I don't know why my last post did not get submitted but I said that I made a mistake. My original post with rankings was in order of effectiveness after comparisons, NOT in order of difficulty like you asked. Sorry!</p>
