“The San Francisco Unified School District working with Dr. Gary Gruber implemented a controlled study course in Critical Thinking Skills for the SAT with 76 juniors, many with language problems and difficulties…The 76 students at the end of the 30-day course (a total of 60 hours) then took the SAT. The average scores were 356 Verbal and 524 Math… Thus there was an average increase of 44 points in the Verbal area and 67 points in the Math area of the test. (A Total of 111 points). This is a very significant score increase and extremely promising especially in light of the College Board’s findings that the average point gain in an SAT prep course is 10 points Verbal and 15 points in Math…Therefore, the score increase of 111 points in a 30-day period with some students increasing a score by 200 points in
each Verbal and Math area is far above the national average.”
-Linda F. Davis, Deputy Superintendent, San Francisco Unified School District

Amazon.com Review

“If you really want to maximize your SAT score, this book is what can help you attain your goal. Not only does it thoroughly review all the elements of the SATs, it has a prominent method of finding out how you make your mistakes. P.S.: Stay away from the Kaplan and the Princeton, they misrepresent people with their “famous” names. All they are good for is teaching you stuff that you already know.”
-A reader from New York-Amazon.com Review

“This is simply a great book. It is organized into clear, concise strategies. After reading this book, I can safely say that I am confident in my math abilities. I have yet to finish the reading/writing section yet, but I am sure that it will be also good. If you don’t understand it, you’re probably just skimming through it. Don’t do that. Absorb it all, because each and every word is important.”
-DeCypher, (San Jose, Ca.)-Amazon.com Review

“In order to teach the SAT, I need a basic teaching source that will assist me in preparing students for the examination. I have spent a great deal of time researching all of the supplemental study aids that currently exist and have concluded that yours is unquestionably the most comprehensive and easy to learn and as such, I would like to utilize your SAT books in this endeavor.”
-Henry Kim, Newark, New Jersey

“Excellent plus for the Math Refresher section and for the explanatory answers to the questions in the Practice Tests.”
-John J. Bailey, Math Dept. Supervisor, Kingston City Schools, Kingston, NY

“My kid took his first standardized test in 3rd grade and came home saying he was confused and might have a bad grade. I have been looking for
books helping young kids facing and dealing with inevitable various exams ahead and finally found the one that really makes me smile. Gruber’s
Essential Test Taking Guide is clear and straightforward with ALL examples and explanations which give both the parents and students great hints and new concepts in solving problems. I even found myself “addicted” to this guide just to want to explore what the “new” and less painstaking ways are to taking a test.”

“We find your Math review for the GMAT without a doubt to be the best comprehensive
review of mathematics available.”
-Lynne Nation, Carol Myers, Instructors, Georgia

“A teacher who recommends an SAT preparation book should do so only if the book follows the actual exam closely in regard to format, question-types, and level of difficulty. Gruber’s new SAT is such a book.”
-Robert Frankel, Math Dept. Chairman, Tottenville High School, Staten Island, NY
