If ever you thought that there could be nothing more boring than talking about standardized tests, then you were obviously not in on the conversation that took place on #CampusChat on Twitter Wednesday night, July 21, 2010.
Led by co-host and expert guest, Alexis Avila, founder of Prepped & Polished, a test prep and college admissions counseling service, the topic of preparing for college entrance exams brought out the creative side of several attendees.
Here are just a few of the Takeaway Tweets:
@akilbello test prep analogy: ACT is to SAT as burger king is to mcdonalds #campuschat
@akilbello: ACT is to SAT as Snapple is to Coca-Cola #campuschat
@EECollegePlan “ACT on the ACT, SIT on the SAT” What I always tell my clients! Answer everything on the ACT, only educated guesses on the SAT. #campuschat
@IvyEyesEditing:Re vocab memorization, really important to read & learn vocab in context. Iconoclastic isn’t exactly teen-speak. Ha! #campuschat
@SheldonWordNerd: @PreppedPolished You’ll be amazed the vocab you’ll learn from a cereal box! hahahaha #campuschat
@PreppedPolished @IvyEyesEditing For international students, I’d recommend the ACT over the SAT-for it is a more straightforward test. #campuschat
@PreppedPolished: I’m big on practice tests. Take a practice test a week leading up to the test, and try to better your score each time. #campuschat
