  • TaiChiTigress - SAT Study HelpsWhat a great resource this is in preparing for the SAT! I only wish this had been available years ago when my husband and I had to take the test or even a few years back when our sons were taking it.

    The book is filled with hints and how to's and practice activities, plus ways not to succomb to the various trick questions and other antics of the test process and even includes four practice tests. Hints from students who have aced the test are in conversation bubbles in the margins of many of the pages.

    After taking the practice tests and grading them, one has access to all the answers and explanations of every problem. There are detailed explanations and examples of precisely how to write a winning essay.

    As an added bonus, there is a code in the back of the book which gives access to the website which also has a wealth of info and resources. Those include a real graded practice test plus a quiz bank where one can make study tests based on which areas were low scoring when tested, a word for the day with definition, plus much more. There is a parent/guardian link also. Your web account with access remains active for one year from sign-up.

    My student made the comment that he had no idea before reading this book that you could actually raise your SAT score without studying. Kaplan's promise is that your SAT score will be better if you just apply the info in this book. It's that good!
  • iheartkarma - Amazingly powerful and pretty little thing!I pre-ordered the Prime on November 1st (from a different site since Amazon stopped taking orders) and thank goodness I did! I received it on Dec. 28th and see the price has already gone up. Nuts. Anyway, I had ordered the silver but got a call saying I would be receiving the champagne unless I wanted to wait longer. I was pleasantly surprised at the color...almost more like a pewter than champagne. I am not a techie person and only capable of giving an average user's review of this device. It's super fast and the graphics are ridiculous. I've never been a "gamer" person but I can't stop playing this jet ski game. It's amazing, words can not explain. Water splashes up and it really looks like water is splashing on the screen. Camera takes decent pictures but I have an SLR that will always trump any other camera. It seems to have it all. I have a lot to learn and actually use with this tablet but so far I have no complaints. But for amateurs like me just know...the "user manual" that comes with it is nothing more than directions on how to plug it in and turn it on. The rest you will have to figure out. Also, I was a little surprised to see that when I went to buy a game the credit card number used to purchase the tablet was already programmed in there. One click and boom. Game bought. Convenient? Yes. A little too convenient for a 4 yr old to easily purchase whatever game he feels like playing at the time? Yes. Surely there is some way to password protect this...but I haven't figured it out (no user manual =)
    I can't wait to get the docking station and wish they had been released together. But at the end of the day, I'm happy and would recommend this device to anyone considering an ipad, etc. as I think the android system is more diverse than anything else on the market. Now if I could get my son to understand that Santa brought this for me and not him I might have more to review =)
