This book takes a new approach to preparing for SHSAT by allowing the student to practice for the test by tackling and improving one area at a time. The book is organized into 8 review lessons which cover the most common types of problems that appear on the SHSAT exam. Each lesson reminds the student of the definitions or principles for that topic that are most often forgotten, and also suggests further study topics if they need a more extensive review. Included with each lesson are a few example problems that demonstrate the various facets of the covered topic, and 25 practice problems that allow one to take a deep dive and practice the specific techniques and methods rigorously (for a total of 200 practice problems). Additionally, the book includes 1 complete SHSAT Math practice test, to help the student assess your readiness for the exam. Also in this series: the first two volumes of this book, each providing five practice exams for the SHSAT math section, along with detailed solutions and explanations.
