I Like Barron's

In Bus Rage News: Readers of the blog alerted me about a considerably earlier case of "bus rage" recorded and on youtube known as Bus Uncle.

Proof that you were an accident and that your parents don't love you: your name is Gaylord.

Thoughts on SAT classes: How helpful are they? I've been to one at Seed Academy and although I feel Sunny has helped further my weltanschauung, he did not help my SAT score any more than studying by myself would have. What's the deal here? Is there any empirical evidence that shows enrolling in a prep course is better than studying by yourself? I want to see some hypothesis testing on this! Theoretically, how could any tutor know your strengths and weaknesses better than you do?

Princeton Review's 11 practice tests: Don't buy it! I would rather rip my pubes out one by one than read through its horribly wrong answers and poorly written questions. Just another reason why I'm a Barron's man.
