Quicksand lurks on what seems like solid ground across which we absolutely must travel to get where we want to go. That’s the background scene that defines the landscape for many students who face the SAT or ACT. They struggle with so many aspects of the test, and the more they struggle, the quicker and deeper they sink. All avoidable.
There was a time many decades ago when TV Westerns had the obligatory quicksand pit. Some good guy would save another good guy – or even save a bad guy – from getting sucked into oblivion. Why get sunk by the SAT? With the right attitude, preparation, and poise, you can leverage the SAT or ACT into an experience that serves you in more ways than you think.
