Books for Overall Practice :

1)Barron’s New SAT :

The Most Effective book for the pros.A must buy for those who wanna achieve score of more than 1500.Practicing tougher questions will help in improving solving time and getting to know approaches to tougher questions.

2)The Official SAT Blue book :

This book is officially sold by The College Board (The organisers of The SAT) so it has the closest questions to the one’s on the actual SAT.However,We don’t recommend this book as it has really less questions and not much things to be learnt from.It has 4 practice tests that you can tear out from the book and solve.
