Top critical review
on March 30, 2014
I do commend the author for taking on this interesting project, but the book was about 50 pages to long. I found it to be a bit disjointed, in that when she wrote that another test was coming up soon, she then seemed to go back to a point earlier than it seemed. I also found some of actual lessons she learned were a bit drawn out and dull (for a reader who was not going to be taking the SAT). That being said, I was interested in reading about the history of the test, the differences she encountered at the locations, the inconsistencies of the proctors and, of course, her results as the project progressed. I was also interested in her test tips and how she motivated her son. I did pick up some tidbits to give to my own son who is taking his first SAT in May, 2014!
