does anyone know of RELIABLE new psat books? with about a month to go I don't feel prepared at all (especially for the math). I was told princeton review had a ton of mistakes in it and I'm not smart enough to figure out when a question is wrong so a reliable book is very important, thank you

The Kaplan NEW SAT books look pretty good...and they have a separate (less expensive) math book that reviews all the basic concepts up to Algebra II. I think you could also probably get away with working through the math tests in the College Board's existing "10 Real SATs" for the PSAT.

Unless your s/d is a junior and has a shot at a National Merit Scholarship, I would recommend not studying for the PSAT. I think the best use of the PSAT is as a diagnostic for the real SAT.
The PSAT can help pinpoint areas of strength and areas that need work. It's value in those regards will be lost if a student preps for the test.

I am a student, and I know my weakness: math. i'm not a terrible student, but i get freaked out when i do math on standarized tests, so having some extra practice would help me feel ready

Celebrian23, PR PSAT does have mistakes but D says they were such that they were easy to find. Also she is working through an old Gruber's, and 10 Reals. That's it. Can you trade places with D for the writing and CR if she'll take your math?
