This makes sense: Up nationwide test scores by trying to make preparing for SATs fun! "Two of the country's largest test-prep course providers are pairing with video game companies for the first time, to give students another way to practice," the Akron [Ohio] Beacon Journal reports. One of the games, designed with the help of Kaplan, helps students with "simple math, reading, and writing games." It runs $40. Portable prep makes even more sense: A $30 version for the Nintendo DS should be available now. "Princeton Review Inc. is also collaborating on a test-prep game," the Beacon Journal adds.
