Peterson's Master the SSAT® & ISEE is the guide for preparing students and their parents for the SSAT and the ISEE. Complete with the most up-to-date information on the exams, the book is vitally important to anyone preparing for secondary school admissions testing. Students have access to test taking strategies for each of the question types, along with exam day specific advice. Four practice tests provide students with a realistic idea of what to expect when the test date arrives. Additionally, students and parents both encounter tips on all aspects of the secondary school search process: how to identify schools that are a good fit, how to apply for financial aid, and all of the other challenges of finding the right private school for you or your child.
