All of the sample test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual exam, and every solution is fully explained. I thought I had enough prep from the ap class to take the sat 2 subject test. A few days before the exam, I casually looked at the book. With prep from ap and a few days of this book, I landed a 700 on the exam, which was a bit disapointing.

The Princeton Review realizes that acing the SAT II: Writing & Literature exam is very different from getting straight As in school. They don't try to teach students everything there is to know about writing and literature--only what they'll need to score higher on the exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the SAT II: Writing & Literature, The Princeton Review will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:* Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool test takers* Ace the writing test by mastering the most important grammar rules * Earn more points by learning to quickly identify sentence errors* Write better essays by knowing in advance what the graders want to see* Score higher on the literature test by more effectively analyzing prose, poetry, and drama*** This book includes 5 full-length simulated SAT II exams (three writing and two literature). All of the sample test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual exam.Contents Include:I OverviewThe Route to CollegeApproaching the SAT II: Writing & Literature TestsII The SAT II: Writing TestCracking the Writing TestGrammar, Grammar, GrammarIdentifying Sentence ErrorsImproving SentencesImproving ParagraphsThe EssayThe Final Word in the Writing TestIII Answer Key to DrillsIV The Princeton Review SAT II: Writing TestV The SAT II: Literature TestCracking the Literature TestLiterary TermsAnalyzing PoetryAnalyzing ProseAnalyzing DramaThe Final Word on the Literature TestVI Answer Key to DrillsVII The Princeton Review SAT II: Literature Test

Don't try to take the SAT II Writing Test without a prep book--specifically the Princeton review book. In all honesty, it's a very tricky test but definitely not impossible if you're prepared. The majority of the test consists of those tricky "find the sentence error" or "correct the sentence," which can be daunting--I was certainly daunted. The Princeton Review book methodically goes through every category of error that you will be tested on, giving numerous examples that turned out to be extremely similar to the acutal test questions. I can't emphasize enough how important this is: you WILL feel confident on the test because you already know what you need to be on the lookout for. (Ex: subject-verb agreement, idioms, tenses, etc.) The explanations are clear, concise, and VERY thorough without being too boring. The section on identifying sentece errors has the same clear, effective format. It also includes the best peice of writing test advice: DON'T be afraid to pick choice E--"no error." When all else fails go with the ol' intuition.
But what of the dreaded essay? Don't worry, this book covers that too. It gives lots of sample questions, and directs you as to what eXaCtLy makes a strong essay. My experience says the'yre right: at least on example from literature, then one from life, or history. And your essay should fill up the space they give you. Anyway, the samples are very good (the real questions are usually easier, judging by the ones I've heard), and the advice clear.
Wait, you say! What about the Literature Test?? The section on preparing for the literature test (which, if you study for both, is really trickier than the writing), is equally effective. The book includes many passages of poetry and prose which are VERY similar to those found on the actual test. Once again, the book outlines specific areas with which you will need to be familiar and does a very good job explaining each example and literary term. In a relatively short space, this book manages to give you a comprehensive review of literature, its structure, and how to analyze it.
In sum, I highly recommend this book to anyone preparing for either (or both) of these tests. The practice tests in the back are great (5 full ones!), all the examples realistic and clear, the explanations thorough and helpful. Most importantly, this book will allow you to go into the tests knowing what types of questions and tricks you'll encounter and how to effectively tackle it. Believe me, it drastically helped my score and gave me all the prep and info I needed.

I fully intended to happily learn all the ins and outs of the SAT II Writing. Learning about the Literature part too would just be a two for one deal. The thing that should have set my antennae up was how short the book was for studying for two SAT IIs. But the sparkling review from that one person who oozed satisfaction because of the book dissolved my doubts.

This PR book is horrible. First, there are three tests in the books but without one word of explanation. I was left wondering, why did I get this wrong? Secondly, there are drills after each very short lesson, but those explanations were really only a couple words. Thirdly, the supposed essays they give you that are supposed to teach you what a good essay looked like, was trash. They showed you two horrible essays that were four sentences long that everyone should know already not to do. The third essay was supposed to be good but it was a trite essay on Romeo and Juliet that wouldn't have gotten more than a four. Fourth, they give wrong information because length is not the only thing those people are looking for. Lastly, when "teaching" about idioms, they state that there are no rules, you just have to know how to "listen" to them?? Well you know what, that isn't true!
The book could teach you a few things, but very few, and no better than another book could. I recommend Sparknotes SAT II Writing. It actually teaches you thoroughly and gives you explicit explanations. Plus Sparknotes is less money than the overpriced no good Princeton Review Writing & Literature.

I love Princeton Review test prep books. Princeton Review books are so friendly they take away a lot of the stress. I used this book when I was in high school and got a nearly perfect score, and I wasn't a big reader back then. I did better than some of my "smarter" friends.

You know... Ive always heard that the PR was a good prep book, so I went out and bought this book. The drills are ok...but its not that good. There are 3 practice tests in this book, but there are no explanations. It just tells you the answers and moves on to another test. I first thought that I got a "defected" book...but no...all my friends told me that their books were also answer-explanation-less. Dont buy this book...get yourself a Barrons.

Do not waste your money on this title. There are so few examples and they don't resemble the actual SAT questions at all.
