                                                         Prepare For The New SAT




                                                         The Gateway SAT Advantage (*** out of four) presents a structured
                                                         approach to increasing your scores in the SAT exams. It is not
                                                         necessary to have a computer to use this course, since it will play on a
                                                         DVD attached to a TV as well as a DVD in a computer. Gateway SAT
                                                         Advantage includes two DVDs containing three hours of video
                                                         presentations by Dr. Kuni Beasley, a college professor who has been
                                                         researching test-taking techniques for the past 12 years; the program
                                                         also includes a 98-page companion booklet that reviews and builds on
                                                         the points in the videos.

                                                         Beasley starts by discussing general test-taking principles, such as
                                                         familiarizing yourself with the test, the test structure and the best time
                                                         to take the tests. He then goes on to review specifics of the new SAT
                                                         test structure and offers a preview of the kinds of questions to be
                                                         expected. The next set of lectures deals with details in preparing for
                                                         math, writing, reading and "last minute" items, such as what to eat the
                                                         night before the exam.

                                                         Rules and acronyms abound in the videos and the booklet. For
                                                         example, in the math prep Beasley uses rules such as the Bikini rule
                                                         for fractions, the Plug & Chug rule or the Paw of Averages rule; in the
                                                         reading prep he uses the TOM CAT acronym (Tone, Object, Meaning,
                                                         Check, Accept, Try) to help analyze questions. He also addresses
                                                         some types of wrong answers, sorting them into Bonehead, Landmine,
                                                         Dufus and Sucker categories and how to identify them.

                                                         The videos and companion booklet are chock full of useful info on
                                                         HOW to get better scores in the SAT, and it seems reasonable to
                                                         expect that, if followed, students will better their scores. The course
                                                         does not include any curriculum review matter.

                                                         The videos mimic a classroom lecture, with slides used to outline or
                                                         demonstrate Beasley’s points. The lack of any kind of interactive
                                                         involvement makes it hard to stay interested, but the videos
                                                         fortunately are broken up into bite-size chapters that make study and
                                                         review easier. Overall, the didactic presentation in the booklet and the
                                                         lecture style of the videos will require considerable motivation on the
                                                         part of the student and/or much encouragement by parents and/or
