Then she did the practice tests in the back of the book, which were really close in difficulty to the actual SHSAT test. I would recommend this book as a good approach as well as some prep help, to get into the specialized high school of choice. One person found this helpful.

Barron's Shsat: Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (Barron's: The Leader in Test Preparation). by Larry Zimmerman and Gilbert Kessler.

The Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) is an examination administered to eighth and ninth grade students residing in New York City and used to determine admission to all but one of the city's nine Specialized High Schools. In 2008, about 29,000 students took the test, and 6,108 students were offered admission to one of the high schools based on the results. On average, 30,000 students take this exam annually.

I used this book to teach a test prep course. The minitests and model tests were great for getting my students prepared for the test format. These schools include the Bronx High School of Science, Brooklyn Technical High School, and Stuyvesant High School, among others.

Got this along with the Kaplan prep book for my daughter. She worked through Kaplan with ease and was able to see her mistakes when she reviewed the answer key with Kaplan. Not so with Barron's. She found many of these math problems quite tricky and even the tutor I hired to help her with those problems found some of them quite tricky as well (tutor is former math teacher with Master's in Math).

I think going over the trickier problems helped my daughter become better at solving easier problems and also better at attacking more difficult ones. I would say go through Kaplan (great test prep tips and sample tests), go through Barron's and then do the actual sample test that is online. Give your child enough time to really go through the books (wish I had started my kid earlier than the summer before the test) with sufficient time to review incorrect answers and he/she should be ok.

Ps. My daughter got into Tech

I used this book for TJ admissions review with my child. This is definitely not a starter book. It was great for review however, especially the verbal section since that seems to be inadequately covered in most other books. We also used PSAT books for practice, but the verbal required for Science and Tech focused high school admissions test is just not all there within the PSAT curriculum (Scrambled paragraphs anyone?). It has good explanations not only within the sections, but also for each of the test questions in the answer guide. My recommendation will be to copy the answer sheet (the one your child fills out) instead of using the one in the book. This allows for re-use of the tests, and for practice on the same material weeks/months later if needed (or with another child).

More difficult than the real test, which is a good thing if your student is high functioning enough to handle it. For other kids, it might stress them out and give them an unrealistic sense of what the real test will be like.

Bought this for my 7th grader to use for SHSAT practice and although the problems were somewhat similar she said she didnt find that the content was remotely near what the actual exam was like.

I think absolutely everyone buys this as a starter book for the SHSAT. Excellent foundation. Just add it to your shopping cart. You won't regret it!

I can't believe that no one mentioned that this preparation book is full of inaccuracies. So many answers that are provided for the model tests are simply wrong. My child was puzzled to say the least by so many errors that this book contained. It is a total waste of time to try matching the answers to the answer key as they make no sense, the published answers. I do not recommend this book to anyone. Only works if you are positive that you get the answer right and be able to disregard the published answer.

A good book for an enthusiastic student who is driven to work on their own. Recommended for self-starters willing to carefully review their own work.

She was able to study with this book, solve questions and analyze the answers. She got into the school of her choice. Highly recommend.
