For those of you who are the graduating class of 2006 and over, how are you preparing for the new SAT? I realize that there may be new test prep books, but how good will they be considering that this is a whole new test. The test prep companies have studied the old SAT for years and so it has been easy for them to know what tactics to use. So for those of us who are taking the new SAT, we have a huge disadvantage and curveball. Tell me what you all think and how you are preparing for the new test. The most important thing I am pondering about is how the colleges (IVY) will view this new test and what the new scores will mean to them. Thanks for your input.

The Ivys will still use these tests as a basis for bragging rights for the highest score. The test will change, but not that!!

It's not a whole new isn't changing so dramatically that you won't be able to prep for it. The new books will probably be out soon, but in the meantime you can study with the existing stuff and just not bother with the practice questions for analogies and the other stuff that's no longer going to be tested.
