Is Cracking the SAT II:Writing by PR or wutever the title of the book is good for getting above a 750 on the SAT II writing test? What is the best book?
And just wondering, what is the best book for SAT II: Match IC?
One last thing, what is the best book for AP US history and AP stats to get a 5 on each test?

PR tends to be on the easy side...the problems will probably be good for practice but they don't explain the grammar rules well for the writing (and that bookllumps together writing and literature). If you have the time, I recommend Barrons for writing.

It's plenty fine for getting you there, along with practice of course. The questions are very similar in style to the real test. If you do need extra help for the grammar, I also got a copy of Grammar Smart and I'm keeping that one.

i would recommend barron's for SATIIwriting, SATIImath1c, and AP stats.
my SATIIwriting teacher uses barron's for my SATIIwriting class and my AP stats teacher is using barron's to help us prepare. there's a lot of typos and some of the explanations are confusing in barron's for math1c but it gives you a lot of practice and overall i would recommend it. hm second choice i would say kaplan.
hope that helped =D

I used PR for writing, and really liked it.
The grammar section is perfect - it's not overly in-depth, so it doesn't take forever to read. It tells you excactly what you need to know and nothing more.
I would recommend it.

Get the Kaplan book.
PR tends to crap a lot.

I'm a slow writer and slow thinker when it comes to writing. How do I write faster (and better?). They say to be creative but I have no imagination...

thanks for all ur help. :-)
Iamstupid, try to relate what you are writing to a personal experience, or to a historical event. try to think of everything about the subject, and write from there. i cant explain exactly how, but i guess practicing would be a good thing. just look at many different topics and try to get 3-4 ideas about it in less than 2 minutes.
