For those who have use the 10 Real SAT books and have already taken the SATS, how effective has it been? Were the actual SATS easier or harder than those in the book?

about the same difficulty. Nice to get used to the test, but little prep value -- that's how it was for me. But that's just cuz my verbal sucks.

I generally did slightly better on 10 Real SATs, but that could be more due to being relaxed, etc. while prepping than any changes in difficulty.

Real SATS #1: 1240

I found 10 Real SATs the MOST effective SAT prep available.

No other books were of any use to me whatsoever.

I took a practice test reguarly for a few weeks, then took the real thing, and lo and behold!, I did better on it than any of my practice tests.

if someone has already worked through all the 10 sats, what should he do? or has he already exploited all his potential and should just give up :)

By Andrew123s (Andrew123s) on Monday, May 26, 2003 - 10:50 pm: Edit

The book doesn't have June tests because the only tests that are disclosed are November, January, and May (those are the only months where you can get the Question and Answer service so those are the only tests that are released in 10 Real SATs).

practice test #1 :1500
#2:1510
#3:1540
#4:1510
#5:1540
#6:1500
#7:1460

the actual SAT APRIL 2003 (makeup date) : 1390

boy what a shock. but even with that i do think it is the most effective because it the questions are the closest in terms of style and difficulty. i think i did better on the practice because some of them i took breaks in the middle. but geez such a big difference.

10 reals is so helpful for math. timing is everything. it taught me to speed through the easy sections so that i'd have time for the hard ones.

"if someone has already worked through all the 10 sats, what should he do? or has he already exploited all his potential and should just give up"

There is more than 1 volume. I know there are at least 3 volumes for the 10 Real: SAT IIs, but I think there are only 2 volumes for the SAT I.

I thought the 10 real sats were a good indicator of what I would score on an actual exam. I had averaged anywhere from 1360-1450 and when I took my actual exam I got a 1450 (700m and 750v).
