Students who take SAT subject tests apply to the most selective colleges in the country. These are high-aptitude kids with overbooked schedules—finally, there’s a series that refuses to waste their time.
The revolutionary MyMaxScore prep series now covers SAT subject tests. Each chapter begins with 5 to 10 test questions to diagnose what students already know, pinpointing which topics need review and which can be skipped to save study time. Also includes proven test strategies, 3 full-length practice exams, and a special section for last-minute cramming.
