How Parents Can Help Teens Overcome the Pressure and Succeed
Author: Ned Johnson,Emily Warner Eskelsen
This insightful and practical guide for parents shows how we often undermine rather than encourage our teens' success on one of the most stressful standardized tests—the SAT—and what strategies will remedy the problem. In recent years this test has taken on fearsome proportions, matched only by the growing competition for slots at major universities. Success is now as much a matter of navigating the maze of changing testing structures, crippling self-conceptions, and family dynamics as it is about memorizing vocabulary words. Tutors Ned Johnson and Emily Warner Eskelsen tackle the trials of the SAT head-on, revealing that the way our culture values this test is just as important as the answers teens fill in. Johnson and Eskelsen cover a wide range of topics including: * Anxiety and ways to avoid "choking" on the test * Best ways to prepare before the test – from exercise to nutrition to sleep * Family communication * What the SAT is actually testing * How test-taking strategies will help teens in all walks of life * Learning differences in teens and strategies for success
