I took a practice Barrons SAT II writing test, and I did not score that well However, I felt very confident that my answers were correct until I corrected them with the answer key.
I took a Princeton Review practice writing test and I got totally different results. For example, I scored only "fair" on barrons improving paragraphs section where I aced the one with Princeton Review. Could anyone tell me which test is more like the SAT II writing, and which one is harder? Thanks!

Barrons is much more realistic as far as question content, but it is also much harder. Keep working with Barrons and ignore your score. I consistently missed 20-25 multiple choice with Barrons, then missed 9 on the real thing.
For the essay, write a boring five paragraph essay with an introduction, personal example, current event, literary example, then conclusion.
