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.

Barron’s SAT Subject Test Physics is updated to reflect the current test and features three full-length practice tests along with detailed content review and expert tips to help students improve their score.
This edition includes:
- One diagnostic test to determine strengths and weaknesses
- Three complete SAT Subject Tests in Physics, which reflect the most recent actual tests in length, subject matter, and degree of difficulty
- Answers and explanations for all questions
- Self-assessment guides after each test so students can measure their progress
- Extensive subject review covering all topics on the test, including mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves and optics, thermodynamics, and more.
Online Practice Test: Students also get access to one brand new, full-length online practice test with all questions answered and explained.
Unique features include a “What’s the Trick?” approach to solving problems quickly and effectively. Additional tips, called out with “If You See…” are included within the chapters to give test takers critical insight into difficult concepts, and QR codes are provided at “Key Concept” areas link to short videos to enhance instruction. The authors also provide general examination strategies and a detailed appendix with equations, physical constants, and a basic math review.

About the Authors
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.
About the Publisher
In the 1930s, Manuel H. Barron opened a bookstore in Brooklyn, New York.
People from the community asked Mr. Barron about books that might be available to help their children study for the New York State Regents exams. After realizing there wasn’t anything available, Mr. Barron created his own study guides.
80 years later, Barron’s has helped millions of people prepare for their next step.
