Any suggestions/comments are appreciated! Thanks.

(Does anyone have experience with Ivy Global? It seems to be the first hit when googled)
(And I wasn't too sure where to post this, apologize for it being out of place.)

Don't take a prep class. Just buy the prep book and work through it yourself.

Oh? I thought I was missing sth since my friends are all registered/taking classes already (although at seemingly random places).

Which books are the best? Kaplan? Princeton Review?

And what about seminars? Are those usually valuable or scams? My friend sent me a link to one he found from linked in:

Worth trying?? Anyone with US application experience to share I would REALLY be grateful.

Seems like a scam. Some schools have admissions info sessions in the GTA during the fall. Those would be a lot more valuable.

Get the official prep books since those have real practice tests. Also, if your science background is good you should also consider the ACT. I found it a lot easier to prep for and write than the SAT.

Hm, never really considered the ACTs, thanks for the tip.
Do you happen to remember which schools have info sessions? I'm pretty sure none in my area have held something like that.. I'd like to keep an eye out.

Thanks again!! If you dont mind .... are you studying in the US

In the Fall of '09 I went to a session offered by Yale and another one that had people from Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth, and UPenn all presenting together at once (both were in the downtown GTA). IDK if they're going to have any this year but you can find out online.

And I currently go to one of those schools lol.

I took an Ivy Global SAT prep course last year in the fall, and it was somewhat useful. They were really helpful in prepping me for the essay and the critical reading section, but for math, it was really just a general overview of grade 11 math.

What grade are you in? If you're in grade 11, you might as well just buy a book (Princeton and Barron's have the best prep books, in my opinion) and work through it. The best way to study for the SAT is to take as many practice tests as you can.
