The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT is very different from getting straight A's in school. They don't try to teach you everything there is to know about math and English -- only the techniques you'll need to score higher on the SAT. There's a big difference. In Cracking the SAT, The Princeton Review will teach you how to think like the test makers.
This is accomplished by teaching you how to:
Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
Solve SAT analogies when you're not sure what all the words mean
Tackle verbal problems by using clues in the questions
Cracking SAT algebra by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters
Ace the geometry problems by "guesstimating" and "sketching"
