Aware that Ethan was a typical teenager (i.e., completely uninterested in any test) and that a mind-boggling menu of test-prep options existed, she decided - on his behalf -- to sample as many as she could to create the perfect SAT test-prep recipe.Debbies quest turned out to be an exercise in both hilarity and heartbreak as she took the SAT seven times in one year and in-between went to school on standardized testing. Here, she reveals why the SAT has become so important, the cottage industries it has spawned, what really works in preparing for the test and what is a waste of time.Both a toolbox of fresh tips and an amusing snapshot of parental love and wisdom colliding with teenage apathy, The Perfect Score Project rivets.

In the book Debbie does it all: wrestles with Kaplan and Princeton Review, enrolls in Kumon, navigates khanacademy.org, meets regularly with a premier grammar coach, takes a battery of intelligence tests, and even cadges free lessons from the worlds most prestigious (and expensive) test prep company.Along the way she answers the questions that plague every test-prep rookie, including: When do I start?...Do the brand-name test prep services really deliver?...Which should I go with: a tutor, an SAT class, or self study?...Does test location really matter?

...How do I find the right tutor?... How do SAT scores affect merit aid?... and Whats the one thing I need to know? The Perfect Score Projects combination of charm, authority, and unexpected poignancy makes it one of the most compulsively readable guides to SAT test prep ever - and a book that will make you think hard about what really matters.From the Hardcover edition.
