The Princeton Review realizes that acing the COOP and HSPT is very different than getting straight As in school. TPR doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about math, reading, and English -- only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the COOP and HSPT. There's a big difference. In Cracking the COOP & HSPT, TPR will teach test-takers how to think like the test-makers. This is accomplished by teaching students how to: Use process of elimination to eliminate choices that look right but are planted to fool the test-taker Use "Ballparking" on mathematics sections to narrow the answer choices and save time Learn how pace oneself, to avoid "dumb mistakes", and earn a higher score Improve scores by focusing on the material most likely to be tested *This book includes 4 full-length simulated exams: 2 COOP and 2 HSPT. All of The Princeton Review's sample test questions are like the ones test-takers will see on the actual COOP and HSPT tests, and every solution is fully explained.
