Check out this blurb from the May Good Housekeeping (my mother buys me a subscription every year - even though I tell her I don't read it). But I did catch this one -- a bit of SAT advice for girls - with the GH Seal of Approval...
Since the mid 60's, boys have consistently scored about 40 points higher overall than girls on the SATs. Now a new book offers tips to help girls catch up. Alexandra Freer, author of Girls' Guide to the SAT, published in March by the Princeton Review, explains "Girls have a tendency to solve problems the 'right' way, the way they've been taught in school. They'll take time to solve rather than guess." But the SAT is closely timed. "We give girls permission to take shortcuts," Freer says. "Guess smart - and move on." Forty points, she adds, makes a difference not only in admissions but in financial aid and eligibility for athletic scholarships.
