Part 3 (Episode 28):
What is the difference between the ACT, SAT, & CLT anyway? Haven’t you wondered that? I know I have. In this episode Jean tells us exactly what we need to know, and we spend a bit of time learning more about the CLT, since it’s newer and not everyone has heard of it. Other topics discussed are when you should start working with your kid to prepare for these, how long do they really get per question, and why do some “smart” kids still have trouble with these silly things? LOTSA valuable info AGAIN.
