Stier and her son, Ethan, had viewed the college admissions process as an object on the distant horizon, but suddenly it was approaching with the velocity of a mac truck and they were left cowering like a deer in the headlights. In an attempt to prepare her son for the SATs, Stier enrolled in expensive prep courses, purchased all the latest books, & repeatedly sits the exams in varied school settings. Her experiences glean insights that should be shared with teachers, students, and parents. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester
