New York Test Preparation and Study Guides
(New York State Regents Exams, NYC Exams, etc.)


New York City has to be one of the greatest places in America, if not the world. Luckily for us, many authors have chronicled The Big Apple's antics in a way just right for kids.

Here are some of the books available. This is not yet a complete list, but I'm adding books to the list daily. If you wish to purchase any of these books, click on either the title or the book cover to be directed to Amazon.com. As a warning, I have put up pictures of the book covers to give you somewhat an idea of the style of each book (I know, I know. "Don't judge a book by its cover") so the pages may load slowly, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

    The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SSAT and ISEE exams is very different from getting straight Aís in school.

In Cracking the SSAT & ISEE, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:
    • Solve analogy and synonym problems even when the test taker isn't sure what all the words mean
    • Ace the reading comprehension section by learning to spot the main ideas, topic sentences, and key words
    • Crack the general math section by learning to avoid wrong answer choices that look correct
    • Solve math problems by learning to turn complicated algebra problems into simple word problems
    • Simplify the SSAT writing sample and the ISEE essay using a sure-fire, step-by-step approach
