Press release from: Blooming Twig Books

Rock the Test is the only solutions manual on the market that gives the solutions to all 8 official practice tests from The College Board's Official SAT Study Guide.
NEW YORK CITY – October 14, 2010 – Now in its 3rd revised and updated edition, Rock the Test includes math, critical reading and writing solutions to help students using the College Board's guide. The authors have been using this companion volume to improve their students' SAT scores by an average of 240 points. The College Board's Official SAT Study Guide far outsells every other SAT Prep guide because it is the only program that has questions supplied by the makers of the SAT (The College Board). While The College Board's Official SAT Study Guide contains all the best questions and answers to the SAT, it does not explain how to get to the answers. Rock the Test is the perfect companion to The College Board's Official SAT Study Guide, providing the students useful in-depth insight and strategies on how to crack the test.

Rock the Test: Companion to the Official College Board Sat Guide by Michael Hickey and Thom Brownworth will be available in trade paperback (ISBN 978-1933918-49-5) by Blooming Twig Books and can be found on www.amazon.com. For more information please visit the book web site www.rockthetest.com.
