Getting Prepared


Our oldest daughter just finished her first round of high school finals.  The amount of time spent on prep and studying took me back to those days when studying was a make-or-break time.  Her school is sending information on what can be done to help her in areas in the future for GMAT and SAT studies.  Wow!  When you think about it, you can never start too soon.

Back in “my day” we didn't have the educational resources that are considered common now.  Just about everything you want to learn about can be found here on the internet but, you still need to know what to study for, right?  It’s one thing to read information, but you need to know how to study and what’s important to know for a test.  We've found a site that will give her so much more guidance than her dad and I ever could, Veritas Prep.com.

Once you sign up for this site, they provide access to experienced tutors over an Internet connection, including a complete set of Veritas Prep books. With their online learning interface, you will be able to talk with a tutor via voice and watch as they illustrate problems on your own screen.  Sounds like a winning combination to me.   And a way for us to brush up on some knowledge as well, which is always a good thing to do!

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
