About the Author
----------------

Mike Barrett has been helping people do better on standardized tests since he was in high school. In
college, he worked briefly for Kaplan but left when it became clear to him that the Kaplan method was irreconcilably
different from the way he naturally thought about the test. A few months after Mike graduated from college with a degree
in linguistics, his younger brothers needed help with the SAT, so he taught them his approach to the test. Word of their
success spread throughout their high school, and Mike was soon offering informal SAT tutoring to a few dozen of his
brothers' friends. One of those students recommended to Mike that he set up his own SAT preparation company. He thought
about that for a couple of weeks and decided to pursue it. Since then, Mike has used a variety of channels to help tens
of thousands of students with the SAT, PSAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, GMAT, ISEE, and SSAT. He regularly travels to work with
students all across the United States, and consults with students all over the world through Skype. He speaks at live
events as well, and is available for booking. Mike's SAT strategies are so different from the traditional approach
because he analyzes standardized tests from the ground up, rather than simply assuming that they cover the material they
claim to cover. In other words, most SAT tutors and courses teach the same math, reading, and writing skills that you
learn in high school, because they take the College Board's word then it claims that the SAT is a test of college
readiness. But Mike has looked carefully at large numbers of real SAT questions, and has determined that they have
almost no similarity at all to the kinds of questions that teachers ask in school. According to Mike, SAT questions rely
on very basic concepts but present them in very strange ways. So students who want to improve their test scores
shouldn't waste time re-learning what they've already learned in school - instead, they should learn how the SAT
actually works, so they can take their existing knowledge and leverage it into a higher score. And this is exactly what
Mike teaches you to do in the SAT Prep Black Book. If you want to understand how the SAT actually works, you need to
read this book.
