Hey guys, I've posted this same thing before, but nobody really gave me an answer..
I'm looking for ACT prep books and I'd like to hear some of you guys' experience with different books so that I can get the best one.

I found that Barron's was MUCH harder than the actual test, especially in the reading section. FOr example, I got 31/40 on my Barron's Reading practice test. When I took the actual thing I scored a 35, meaning I only missed 1 or 2

So.. Barron's seems to be one that i should maybe avoid..
Any other comments? Is Princeton Review's good?
(Sorry.. I'm kinda lost.. There's just too many to decide one from..)

PR's Cracking the ACT has a fairly good name here on CC, even though I find it a bit too simplified and lacking practices (even with the CD). Barron's, as said, is much harder, but I find the study/review sections helpful. Its math review covers more than needed, but the book is full of practices.
Of course, if you want REAL practices, order tests from ACT.

yeah, barron's book is way too complicated. ESPECIALLY on reading, they try to make it seem harder than it really is...i thought reading would be my worst score, cuz at the "5 mins left" call, i jus filled in the remainder of my bubbles, yet i scored a 33 in reading. huh.

PR's Cracking the ACT is the best
