The name of the SAT Reasoning Test has changed over time, but the fact that most colleges in the U.S. require this standardized test for admission, has not changed.

The current SAT Reasoning Test was introduced in 2005, takes 3 3/4 hours to finish, costs $49.00, and requires pre-registration. It has three sections: Math, Critical Reading (formerly called 'Verbal'), and Writing. Each section has a possible 800 points for a total of 2400 points.

For further information you can check the website of the College Board, the organization that administers the test, at this link.

Read Something New-To-You

 I love thrillers--they're easy, undemanding, page-turning, satisfying reading after a long day. But occasionally I need a change. This year I've challenged myself to include some different genres, some I've been reluctant to read. To my surprise I've encountered delightful books and discovered that, what I really want in a story is not just one type of plot, but rather, something entertaining that's well written.

ABRA CADABRA! HOCUS POCUS!
