I'm planning on taking the SAT II Wriiting May 1st and haven't really had time ot prep for it.

Can anyone give me any tips or comments as to what to expect and how hard it's going to be?

How hard is the essay part?

Also, what's the best prep book? I bought Barrons and it seems to be pretty good...

Have you taken the PSAT w/ the writing part?
If so, check your answers and find your weaknesses, then study from your Barron's book :)

Don't bother to study for the Writing SAT II, provided that you know grammar relatively well. Just get a good night's sleep and churn out a hamburger on the essay.

Hamburger essays.....::Shudder::

Writing SAT II is probably one of the most difficult standarized tests. I hate that crap. Studied my ass off for a year and went up 10 points. What the hell? It tests grammar you'll never need to know and that you'll never care about. It covers much more than just "basic" grammar. For example, why would anyone care whether or not you use "whom" or "who" interchangeably. If they can't understand what you mean to say, then they're an idiot.
