Synopsis: This insightful and practical guide for parents shows how we often undermine rather than encourage our teens' success on one of the most stressful standardized tests--the SAT--and what strategies will remedy the problem. In recent years this test has taken on fearsome proportions, matched only by the growing competition for slots at major universities. Success is now as much a matter of navigating the maze of changing testing structures, crippling self-conceptions, and family dynamics as it is about memorizing vocabulary words. PrepMatters tutors Ned Johnson and Emily Warner Eskelsen tackle the trials of the SAT head-on, revealing that the way our culture values this test is just as important as the answers teens fill in. Johnson and Eskelsen cover a wide range of topics including:

* Anxiety and ways to avoid "choking" on the test
* Best ways to prepare before the test - from exercise to nutrition to sleep
* Family communication
* What the SAT is actually testing
* How test-taking strategies will help teens in all walks of life
* Learning differences in teens and strategies for success

From the Back Cover: "A good college education is more important than ever in today's global economy. Desirable or not, standardized tests are an essential element to college admissions. Johnson and Warner have written an insightful and common-sense guide on how to prepare for these tests; we know how good they are--two of our children are PrepMatters alumni."--Judy Woodruff
