For SAT preparation, many students have always been trusting Barron’s products. To get admitted to great schools, one certainly needs to take not only the general SAT but also SAT 2 subject tests.
You will really like how this physics SAT book is divided into sections with examples and problems after each section. It makes studying really easy and nice. All the problems have an explanation, which is perfect for students who want to study by themselves. Diagnostic tests are designed to show students how well are they doing so far and which part do they need to focus on more. Wise usage of this book can guarantee that you pass your physics SAT exams. It is very important to give yourself time and pace accordingly. If you start studying only a week or a few days before the exam with inadequate physics knowledge, chances are, your scores will not be very impressive.

About the Author Of Barron’s SAT Subject Test: Physics 2nd Edition PDF
Robert Jansen teaches Advanced Placement Physics at Aliso Niguel High School in Aliso Viejo, California. He has taught Advanced Placement Physics B since 1998 and the complete Advanced Placement Physics C course, including electricity and magnetism, since 2001. He holds a bachelors degree in psychobiology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a master’s degree in education from Pepperdine University. He gravitated toward teaching physics due to the challenging material and a sustained belief that physics does not need to be mysterious and difficult, but rather comprehensible and accessible.
Greg Young has been teaching high school science for more than twenty years. He currently teaches Honors Physics and Chemistry at San Clemente High School in San Clemente, California. He holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of California, San Diego, and a master’s degree in science education from USC. Having always been interested in science and how to make it relevant to others, Greg’s interest in teaching is being able to create interactive lessons that engage students in their learning and form a relevant context for difficult concepts in physics and chemistry.
