I think you have all the math books you need. If you have money to burn, I would rather see you buy more of the old tests from the College Board.

If you have read Barron's and Kaplan, you must have a good idea about the strategies for math. All books are pretty much equal for math. Some people recommend Gruber's because it is much more comprehensive for math.

If you get Gruber's, do NOT try to study it. Use it as an encyclopedia not a schoolbook. Go to work on your 10RS -or ordered tests- and check your answers while taking the tests and later on AFTER taking the tests. Make sure you look up a strategy that will help you with a particular problem.

Lastly, if math is your nemesis, spend some time analyzing what would be a PERFECT score for you. If you do not NEED 800, your strategy can be very different. Remember that a score of 52 is about 700. Well, 52 is 8 omits and there are typically LESS than 8 question of a difficulty 5. To score 600-650, you can usually omit ALL questions 4 and 5 and only answer the easy and medium ones.

If you have a 800 verbal score, add a 600-650 and you end up with a remarkable score.

i'm not aiming for a 800 maths just a 700 (as haas been blatantly stated the college of my dreams).But the deal is the high my math score the better.(700 is below average here).
