Princeton Review: Cracking the SSAT & ISEE
Best all-around ISEE prep book. PR ISEE has been known for decades for its excellent strategy, math, vocabulary sections. Two full-length practice tests.

Kaplan: SSAT & ISEE Prep
Great companion to PR ISEE book. Good strategy, math, vocabulary sections complement PR. Two practice tests.

Peterson’s: Master The SSAT & ISEE
Mini-tests for synonyms, analogies, reading, math plus two full-length practice tests make this book the next in line for ISEE prep. If possible, get the 8th edition.

Barron's SSAT/ISEE
Plain vanilla ISEE prep book. Two practice tests. Good ol' "drill & kill" math section. Not tops, but given the dearth of good ISEE practice tests, you may need it.

McGraw-Hill Education SSAT/ISEE
Last in line. Three more practice ISEE tests, plus additional verbal, math, reading exercises.



Varsity Tutors Online ISEE Materials
Hundreds of free quizzes and full-length mock section tests offer practice with ISEE content and questions. FYI: some parts badly designed (difficulty too great, etc.).
