A sort of dummies guide to taking the SAT tests, this how-to book approaches the material in a very urban, culturally-relevant fashion. The book is divided up into math and English sections and covers areas such as Critical Reading, Writing, Math, and Practice Test.

The author is a PhD as well as an award-winning comedy writer who has created yucks for The Tonight Show and more recently for the popular cartoon show Robot Chicken. So, the entire approach to the book is lighthearted, comical, and meant to impart knowledge without your even realizing that you're absorbing it.

Here is a sample English multiple choice question:

Paris could hardly think straight because of the _________ racket and because she wasn't all that bright.
  1. harmonious
  2. epigrammatic
  3. cerulean
  4. cacophonous
  5. immaterial
Not having looked up the answer, this reviewer thinks the correct response is d. Anyway, that's the type of question and material you'll find here.

Horn truly is a funny guy with a sharp mind. Anyone with kids about to enter the collegiate system needs to buy this for their children. After all, do you know about misplaced modifiers and dangling participles? It might be a good refresher for you as well.
