Test Prep Holiday Wish List

By December 4, 2012

Follow me on:

ugly sweaterAll I want for Christmas is...

...a killer test score, right? Maybe that wish knocks a little bit of the stuffing out of Santa, but for many of you out there, you'd like nothing more than a 170 on the GRE Quantitative section or a 36 on the ACT. It's just too bad that friends and family can't purchase a high score (legally) so testers typically get what the rest of the country does: a nice sweater or a 10-pack of mini lip glosses (and who needs that many lip glosses at one time?)

At any rate, here's my list of the Top 10 Things Testers Really Want This Holiday Season:

  1. A mechanical pencil sharpener that won't eat half of your pencil.
  2. Test questions that miraculously adapt to the specific cultural, ethnic, regional, and religious affiliations of the test-taker.
  3. Practice tests that don't make you feel like an absolute idiot.
  4. Free Starbucks for life if you can understand half of what's on the new MCAT 2015
  5. A  masseuse to work out the kinks in your hand the second it cramps up during scantron oval-filling.
  6. A personal tutor with the intellect of Einstein and the face of a Greek god/goddess.
  7. Chocolate chip cookies as brain food.
  8. The innate ability to tune out (choose one) annoying roommates/noisy children/meddling friends/other study distractions.
  9. People who score higher than you on the LSAT to mysteriously choose to join a band of wandering minstrels.
  10. And last but not least....Three words: NO MORE SAT.
