SAT Test Prep in the Shower

That’s right…the shower. While we strongly advise “early and often” test prep, the SAT test has been know to transpose normal people to compulsive zealots, and rest assured there’s a company making a product to serve the need.

After you’ve mastered Intuitive’s 500 SAT vocabulary list curtain, switch it out for a review of SAT math concepts! This reminds of me of the classic Seinfeld episode where Kramer decides to prepare his food in the shower to save time and ultimately installs a disposal in the shower.

He was a colleague and good friend of my father, Manny Schellscheidt. My thoughts and prayers will be with Glenn and his family.
