Read full description of the books:



Each year millions of high school junior and seniors across the country, armed with standard issue No. 2 pencils and in various states of battle-readiness, face one of life's most gut-wrenching rites of passage: the SAT. Award-winning journalist David Owen first exposed the often biased, unscientific, and secretive manufacturing, grading, and distribution of this much-dreaded test by its creator, the Educational Testing Service (ETS), in 1985's widely acclaimed None of the Above: Behind the Myth of Scholastic Aptitude. Part devastating expose, part savvy test guide, this bestselling book demystified the development of the SAT and offered many practical strategies on how to beat the test. Now, fifteen years later, Owen's book, completely revised and updated by educator Marilyn Doerr and with a new preface by the author, is more relevant than ever for students, their parents, and those who believe in the importance of educational opportunity for all. Praise for the First Edition: Owen's intelligent, peppery style makes the confusing jargon of statistics and educational theory understandable, something ETS has striven hard to avoid.--Stevenson Swanson, Chicago Tribune This book should be read--with guffaws--by any educator who ever cringed before an SAT score.--Virginia Robinson, Education Times The reader will appreciate this book, among other reasons, for the excellent advice it offers on beating the tests.--Publishers Weekly An angry book (though often a very funny one), and with good reason: the SAT is a scam. --Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post
