Each year high school students across the country, armed with No. 2 pencils and in various states of battle-readiness, face one of life's most gut-wrenching rites of passage: the SAT. Part devastating expose, part savvy test guide, None of the Above demystifies the development of the SAT and offers practical strategies on how to beat the test. Fifteen years after its original publication, Owen's updated book is more relevant than ever for students, their parents, and those who believe in the importance of educational opportunity for all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
None of the Above is the best book ever written about the SAT. It's well-researched, accurate, and appropriately scathing. At the same time, though, it's funny, well-written, and a very easy read. Every student, parent, and admissions professional should read it before discussing college admissions. -- John Katzman, President, The Princeton Review
America's story in the years since this book appeared is largely the story of an upper tier of Americans whose opportunities and tribulations are separating from those of the average citizen. The SATs remain an important part of the support structure for that tier. David Owen's description of them is as wickedly funny as it was in 1985, and even more important. -- Jim Fallows * U.S. News and World Report *
It may take even longer for corporate test manufactures to meet their comeuppance than it takes for cigarette and handgun manufacturers to meet theirs. But when it happens, we will thank the authors for this update of our outrage." -- Jeannie Oakes, Presidential Professor in Education Equity, Emeritus, UCLA
The book is immensely readable. Recommended at all levels. * CHOICE *
