I thought Princeton Review was pretty accurate in the type of questions it presented. Barron's tends to over-prepare you but, given the fact you aren't "super great at math," Barron's could be very demoralizing for you. You make the call, if you feel you are adequately motivated to take on the challenge Barron's gives you then I can assure you, you will be handsomely rewarded. If you don't think you can handle the strain of Barron's, Princeton Review will definitely be kinder and still helpful.

Is Princeton review pretty comprehensive?

Well I didn't really study with the PR book. I bought the REA book on a whim- looked over the material in it and took two practice tests from it. Then, I went to Barnes and Noble and sat down with a PR book, skimmed it and took a handful of practice questions. In addition to that, another board member and myself exchanged questions and that was good prep. I ended up with an 800 with lots of time to spare. Good luck and don't hesistate to ask questions.
