Abstract:

[This book] 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 as the competition for slots at major universities continues to grow. Success on the SAT 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.-Back cover.
