Is everything on the test IN the barron's book? I also have the Kaplan's book and some stuff in Kaplan is not in the Barrons(or covered in very little detail).

Is the depth of discussion on all topics in Barrons adequate? This is for SAT II CHEMISTRY!!

No-skim thru a textbook for everything
besides, barrons has tons of typos and mistakes

Any more comments on this for people that took this before? There seems to be a lot of 800 chem people here.

barrons totally overprepares you.. it is full of tons of random tidbits of info that arent very useful. thus if u study it, youll for sure do awesome. their tests are also more difficult than the real thing. i used barrons (mainly because it comes with so many tests) and princeton review and got an 800. PR was right on target with the real thing.

What did you get on the Barron's practice test on average?

I just heard, from someone that i should sub tract like 70 points from my PR score, just because it does not imitate the real thing, and also it is too easy. I don't understand?

No way, I jus studied with PR and concentrate on regular school classes bring me 800
Don't trust too much on Barrons or Kaplans...
Stick with one book and know everything...
