New Book Wednesday – SAT Edition

Today’s announcement is a combined college counseling and library announcement. Junior and sophomores will be getting the student’s guide to the PAST in their study skills classes today…and we’ll be administering the PSATs two weeks from today. Don’t panic. And remember that the “P” in PSAT stands for “practice” (okay, technically, I think it’s “preliminary” but po-tay-to, po-tah-to). Either way…they don’t count for anything other than getting a feel for the test.

satFor those who want to practice and get helpful tips on how to take the SAT, we have a bunch of test prep books in the library. The newest one is one that I discovered over the summer. Tutor Ted’s Guide to the SAT. I chose it in large part because within the first few pages, there’s a joke about Justin Bieber. And really, how bad can a test prep book be if they’re bustin’ on the Bieb? Actually, there’s a lot of humor in the book but there’s also a lot of really good advice. So, if you’re looking for a little SAT prep, check this book out.



Scholarship Opportunity

For the seniors, here’s a quick scholarship link: AES Engineers is offering a $500 dollar scholarship to anyone who will be attending a college. You do not have to be planning to study engineering. You just need to write an essay (and there are plenty of us who will be happy to help you edit and polish that essay). Deadline is October 5th.
