I broke down every Blue Book test when I wrote the Math Guide. In the book there are page numbers instead of links, obviously.
The idea here is that you can take a test, and use the results from that test to really identify some weaknesses. Then you drill those weaknesses before taking another test. Awesome, right?
I’m running a promotion throughout February that will give away some free copies of the book. Want in? The details are here.

Really really really helpful. I just added to resource page. Are you going to do the rest of the Blue Book ? 😉
I did the whole Blue Book for the Math Guide…will probably spread them out on the blog over time.
Sorry…that’s what I meant 😉 Are you going to POST the rest of them. I’ve been alone in Jeannie’s Bottle for way too long. Need to make sure I practice communicating with others so I don’t forget how 😉
