The $AT

February 16th, 2008 at 05:48 pm

Do they sell stock in the SAT?

I have spent thus far:

two PSAT tests -- about $60

one SAT (with the test copy) -- $60

one study guide for the US History Subject test -- $6.75 (EBay)

Anticipated costs:

A Math Subject Test guide

An SAT vocabulary CD (words set to music)

2 more SAT tests

2 Subject tests

Various score reports to various schools


Seriously, what a rip off. Child can take SAT Prep Class as an elective at school, which is a savings.

    Its why when I was in high school I used to call the Educational Testing Service (the underlying entity), the Evil Testing Service.

    I know the world has changed, but I never graduated from high school; went to college early; and wound up as a college professor. I studied for my GREs so they were sort of high, but my SATs were M 480 and Verbal 570.

    Of course, I would feel remiss if I did not put some effort into ensuring child's preparation for these tests, but the hype is making someone a lot of money -- and it isn't me.
