Sparknotes is pretty good for everything. Kaplan is also not bad.

ick, i've spotted a few errors in sparknotes... is it similar to the actual test?

Yea I did also.. but its still a great book.
For anyone with the book:
An even number plus an odd number does NOT equal an even number, as the book states.

also -- for the formulas it gives before the practice tests, it gives the volume of a sphere as this: 4/3 * pi^3 ... nooo, it's 4/3 * pi * r^3 ... what a terrible mistake, meh.

doofus -- have you taken the math iic yet? do you know if the practice tests (and scoring) in the sparknotes book is similar to the actual math iic test?

thanks

I was using it today, and I found a mistake on the last practice test for the Math IC. But overall it's not misleading like the Barrons book.
