This year my favorite SAT prep book is the McGraw Hill SAT 2012 with CD ROM. It has great a vocabulary reference area that includes learning word roots, prefixes and suffixes. It has 10 total practice tests. Because it has 2 online tests it really is able to give a “score” for reference that is far better than just taking a test and using an answer key to figure out how you are really doing. It is not a very expensive book and it is worth its weight in gold. It is available at most book stores and also for delivery from many online resources.
