which?

The test itself, prior to its administration.

Aside from that, Barrons. It seems to teach chemistry rather than a test, and the practice exams are quite difficult compared to the real thing, I've heard (I haven't taken the real thing yet). Train hard, fight easy.

When I took the SAT II Chem, I found that the practice tests in Barron's were closest to my actual score. If you had a good class, I'd suggest just reading Barron's. If you didn't, stick with Princeton Review.

yay, ok, got barron's.
how about princeton review vs kaplan for practice tests most like the real thing?

Um, I don't know how PR is exactly, but NOT Kaplan. If you have to choose between the two, go PR.

what's wrong with Kaplan? Second time I've seen a post that wasn't too positive on that book...

Kaplan has too much math on its practice tests compared to the real test
