Just wanted to know which test prep books you thought were the best. I have only heard of Kaplan, REA, Barrons, and Princeton.

It depends on the exam for which you need them. Nice and quick summaries are usually Princeton Review's thing, and if you need difficult questions to really prepare yourself, use Barron's. [Aaah, bad parallelism!] Kaplan also does pretty well by way of summaries, but I've only used it for biology.

Yeah, which tests are you taking?

new sat - princeton review 11 practice tests
sat2writing - cliff notes' verbal review
old sat - barrons
math2c - barrons (hard) or princeton review (moderate)
ap chem - i looked at both barrons and kaplan. i just like barrons a lot more...lot more questions and the pages are thinner.

AP [insert subject] History: Princeton Review is the best when it comes to summaries, and the questions are pretty good too.
AP [insert science or math]: Barron's is good for hard questions...but I can't say much about their summaries.
SAT I and II: College Board books are great for practice, except the SAT I book is probably irrevelant if you're class of 2006 and beyond.
