Would you guys say the tests in the Barron's and PR books are to the actual tests? I know this question has been asked a lot, but it's kinda hard to sift through these threads!

Thanks for your help

Barron's --> Difficulty is about right or a little harder.. but focuses too much on lab procedures.

PR --> Found actual exam to be more difficult, but content is more relevant than Barron's

I used both and did alright.

I used just the PR... Barron's is known to cover things that wont ever show up on the test... The book really over prepares you... Just use the PR... I got a 750 with it but then again I know my chemistry

Thanks for the help so far guys!

Itscool- but the diagnostics in the PR book: were they similar to the actual test? Were u getting around 750s on them?

I would reccomend Kaplan's book for SAT II Chemistry. Not too shallow, not too deep.

I know several people who used Kaplan's to get their 800 in SAT II Chem.

I was getting 800s on the PR book but got a 760 on the actual test. Bad luck maybe.
