Inhaltsangabe: The strategy guide with attitude, Up Your Score is the only test-preparation book written for students by students. Smart, savvy, and serious-but funny, too- Up Your Score proves itself as the guide that tackles the SAT in terms of students will immediately relate to. br>For the 2001-2002 edition, the book has been revised and updated by Joe Jewell, a new guest editor with a perfect 1600 under his belt. Presenting solid, practical information in a voice that's hip and knowing, the book covers 600 key vocabulary words, teaches important insider math tricks, shows how to improve memory and concentration, and demonstrates how test-taking is itself a skill, including how to think like the SAT and why it's always better to guess than leave a question unanswered. And there are the side issues-what to do if you have a nasty proctor and how best to fill in the answer circles and save nearly six minutes. With Joe Jewell's updated cultural references and his own special strategy tips, here is the latest on everything kids need to psyche out-and not be psyched out by-the Test.
