Taking nothing away from these kids- Its always sad when we only focus on the "Perfect Score" and not the whole child. Way too much emphasis on grades and standardized tests in our society when we all know none of that really matters in the "real" world. Again- no disrespect to these kids who clearly worked hard to reach this goal.

I totally agree.

Not withstanding the prior comments, lets keep in mind that those who perform at this level on these tests are for the most part the same students who excel in the c classroom. All the results of hard work and commitment. We acknowledge achievements in sports so why not this too. And many who perform well on these tests do in fact move on to achieve great things in college and the real word. Only those that didn't do so feel a need to say that these results don't matter. If they didn't then why do so many people take the test?

Of great importance is to begin studying months before the SAT and work regularly and consistently. Learning the grammar rules, increasing vocabulary, and enhancing essay skills– each is a time consuming endeavor. Also, use a book which includes detailed answer explanations so that the student is able to enhance skills by learning from inevitable mistakes. I use Barrons and McGraw-Hill with my tutorees. www.tutormaven.com
