Math questions are far too easy! April 26 2012
By Cardinal Education - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Significant changes were made in the past several years to both the SSAT and the ISEE. Only three SSAT/ISEE prep books on the market have printed new editions that addressed these changes: this book (Kaplan), the Princeton Review book, and the SSAT/ISEE for Dummies. This is definitely NOT the best of the three.

The practice tests in this book do reflect the updated test structures. However, they have a major problem: they are way too easy! The difficulty level on all of these practice tests does not even approach the difficulty level of the actual tests. This can give a student false confidence and leave him or her unprepared.

Aside from the practice tests, this is a decent book.

Pros:
-Well-organized, readable
-Good vocabulary section, including root/prefix list with many examples
-100 Essential Math Concepts section serves as a great review tool

Cons:
-Practice tests are far too easy

I would recommend this book to a 5th grader studying for the Lower Level ISEE or SSAT. It covers the basics and writes at a level accessible to 5th graders. However, keep in mind that the practice tests in here (even the Lower Level ones) are not a good reflection of the actual ISEE/SSAT. If you buy this book, be sure to supplement it with the official practice tests available from the ISEE and SSAT websites.

For 8th graders trying to do well on the ISEE/SSAT, the Princeton Review book, in conjunction with the official practice tests and a supplemental math workbook, is definitely the way to go.

Questions not well written- no changes since 2008! Oct. 14 2012
By Lisa D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was looking for review books for my youngest as my older two went through the process 5 years ago. We did the 2008 version again and the 2012/3 is the same! Some of the questions are not well written and confusing at times. At least for the middle level SSAT, many of the questions are too difficult also. Some of the test-taking advice is well done though. We had to pick and choose between three prep books to get the right prep done. All in all I would pick Princeton over this one.

The 2012 edition seems the same as 2011. I bought thinking it would have different practice tests but they are identical. Otherwise good practice/ review. Returned as we don't need 2 copies.
