SAT Changes

The dreaded SAT. What to do? 

An educator describes a dilemma centering on the Scholastic Aptitude Test as an "enormously confusing and nuanced situation."

There are now two versions of the test that measures high school students' academic prowess and is a key to college acceptance. The new version takes effect next spring. The student dilemma is whether to take the old SAT this fall, or wait to take the new one. The question applies mainly to the high school of class of 2006.

For some students, it's adding an extra dose of stress and strategizing to an already complex process. Some universities say they'll only consider scores from the new test. It includes a timed essay, advanced math and more reading comprehension.

Gone is the old "clay is to potter as stone is to sculptor" analogy question.
