Gruber’s Complete SAT Guide 2008 provides a revolutionary approach to SAT prep, with proven strategies based not only on answers, but evaluating why the student chose those answers. Dr. Gary Gruber is nationally recognized as the leading expert on standardized tests and the originator and developer of critical thinking skills necessary for standardized tests. With quick quizzes, 5 complete practice tests and inside information on how SAT questions are created, the “Gruber Method” will point students towards a personal study plan and help them improve their scores.

The Naked Roommate: And 107 Other Issues You Might Run Into College, by Harlan Cohen, the nation’s #1 college expert on college life and nationally syndicated advice columnist, is the most complete book on college life ever written. Packed with anecdotes, tips, expert advice and the latest resources, The Naked Roommate explores every area of campus life including relationships, dorm life, finances and more. The newly updated version includes more student feedback and advice on breaking down the fifth wall of technology: Facebook and MySpace.
