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

your even realizing that you're absorbing it.
