Anyone know where I can find / purchase study guides for English and Math from?<br><br><br><br>
The past couple of years I've created study guides which I'll eventually use to refresh my memory for SAT and/or ACT. This year though, I haven't even started one.

try Cliff Notes<br><br><br><br>
they make extended study books. Most of the time you can buy them at bookstores or WalMart.

Goodness, yeah, the Borders near me has TONS of ACT and SAT prep books. I know I saw LSAT and PSAT prep books, too.

I might have done better on the ACT the two times I took it if I had used a prep books, but I didn't. You can't study the exact questions etc its going to be over since they change it all the time.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention the typical prices. Thanks SD! I guess they figure they may as well get you geared up to pay college tuition and textbooks by charging you a lot for the prep book.

yeah, bookstore's your best bet. kaplan, princeton review, etc - there are lots of kinds. kaplan are generally considered the best but are often times overkill. but if you understand everything in the kaplan book, that's a good indication that you'll do well.

i'll say it once and i'll say it again, man, dude, woman, whomever - check with your guidance counselor - they should have free stuff. at least mine did. and i'm not talking about free condoms. what?<br><br><br><br>
someone just woke me up from a really deep sleep and i'm completely disoriented. wow.

no kidding. in college the guides were always expensive. not in comparison to the texts though, wowza. some cost me over $100 and we only used a couple of chapters. ripoff. but dude, always always buy the guides. half the guides i bought in college were published by 2 of my profs. basically everything in the guide was on the exam. sweeeeeeeet.<br><br><br><br>
ya know. one could easily make their own guide, or photocopy existing guides, and sell them to other students in the class (black market-like) for half the price of the published ones, and make a killing.

Thanks everyone.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Funkified: Unfortunately, I have no guidance counselor because I do school online. Hrmm... maybe I'll have to get someone from the high school to ask for me...

I'm in the Education program. In CA after receiving a teaching credential you get 5 years to clear the credential, by taking additional classes, so thats what I'm doing now. I'm currently taking a class on mainstreaming the exceptional student...basically having special needs kids in the regular classroom. I eventually hope to get a masters in English.
