Myth Busters: The Truth Behind Standardized Testing (and how to keep your sanity – and dignity) with testing guru Adam Ingersol

What should I know about the SAT? Is the ACT a better test than the SAT or vice versa—what’s better for me? When should I start testing—is earlier better? What should I know about the PSAT? Should I enroll in a test prep course or get a private tutor? What about testing optional schools? How about SAT subject tests—do they still matter?… Let’s face it, standardized testing looms large in everyone’s mind and generates lots of questions that can lead to test anxiety. Adam Ingersol, founder of Compass Education, is one of the most trusted and knowledgeable test prep experts. Adam will offer great insights into the various standardized tests, what they should mean to you, and provide factual, relevant, and good information regarding testing so that you can make informed decisions with regard to your own testing agenda. BFS parents and students have dubbed Adam the test prep “rock star”. We are thrilled to have Adam conduct this program again. Refreshments will be served at 6:00pm.
