Discus: SAT/ACT Tests and Test Preparation: June 2004 Archive: SAT II LITERATURE BOOK?
By Recordingwater (Recordingwater) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 10:34 pm: Edit

What's the best book to use for SAT II literature? Are they all basically the same? Does it really matter? I have some background in analytical literature (took AP Lang), so.. I dunno. I just basically need a book to review, I guess. And to teach me how to analyze poetry.

it was harder than AP language!! I took them within a couple days of each other. It's not that bad, truly, but I found all the books to be unreasonable and wayy too difficult (I used Kaplan and Barron's -- kinda skimmed them and took a few tests each) As long as you review what to look for, there really isn't thatmuch else to look as so much of it's interpretation.

I have Cracking the SAT II Lit & Writing (or Writing & Lit, I dunno) and thought it was very good.

Analyzing poetry is tough sometimes, but the Cracking book has some good tips for that.
