The Perfect Score Project is an indispensable guide to acing the SAT a€“ as well as the affecting story of a single moma€™s quest to light a fire under her teenage son. It all began as an attempt by Debbie Stier to help her high-school age son, Ethan, who would shortly be studying for the SAT. 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 a€“ on his behalf -- to sample as many as she could to create the perfect SAT test-prep recipe. Debbiea€™s 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 a€œwent to schoola€ 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 worlda€™s most prestigious (and expensive) test prep company. Along the way she answers the questions that plague every test-prep rookie, including: a€œWhen do I start?a€...a€Do the brand-name test prep services really deliver?a€...a€Which should I go with: a tutor, an SAT class, or self study?a€...a€Does test location really matter?a€ a€b a€œHow do I find the right tutor?a€a€b a€œHow do SAT scores affect merit aid?a€... and a€œWhata€™s the one thing I need to know?a€ The Perfect Score Projecta€™s combination of charm, authority, and unexpected poignancy makes it one of the most compulsively readable guides to SAT test prep ever a€“ and a book that will make you think hard about what really matters.
