Who the hell comes up with a 'game' like this
Its not a game is it, it can be useful like the driving theory roms or cooking roms.

SATS just got scrapped
In short, the answer is Kaplan.
really? no SATs anymore?
No, the SAT is still very much real.
edit: It's main competition, ACT, is gaining popularity really fast, and some liberal arts colleges don't require SAT anymore, but SAT is still required by some colleges and very readily available.
Doesnt playing games ruin your education?? Ironic
Did this morph out of "My SAT Coach" or are they really two different products?
they released this during the xmas rush?
I feel really sorry for any kids that have parents that would buy them the digital equivalent of a revision book for xmas....
SAT Subject PhysX? Plz plz plz plz i'm taking it dec 5th
i wonder if this is actually helpful
im taking the SATs in a week lol -.-
@DS_USER_997 UK SATs and USA SATs are entirely different exams. Other people wondering SATS in the UK appear at years 2, 6 and 9 (6-7, 10-11 and 13-14 years old respectively), SATs in the US are as Covarr says college (more or less a synonym to university) entry exams.
Back on topic if I were a release group/Square enix I would have a serious urge to be a bastard and "tweak" some of the answers.
I'm going to try this tonight, and hopefully it will have some interesting content... I don't even know what those SATs REALLY are, except some text and such like you just described FAST6191, but since I'm in my 3rd year in University, Maybe this could be something good to refresh my memory... like an "higher education brain training"... oh well, only after testing it I'll be able to make some judgment on it...
Woulda been nice to have this when I was in high school. I studied for it somewhat and got good scores. ~2000 out of the 2200 the new system used. They have changed the scoring again since though haven't they?
The new system goes up to 2400; 800 per test. I got 1960 (720 math, 620 reading, 620 writing).
Is it bad for me to want for a GRE or MCAT edition? I want the DS to help me pass my boards some day damn it.
I took the SAT back in the ol' days and got 800/720 English/Math. No writing section at that point but I would have smoked that assuming they can read my handwriting
I don't think games like this will help most students. Nothing beats comprehension of the subject matter. I took a class (free!) covering grammar and after a few weeks I was spotting errors all over standard printed media. I lost much of the ins and outs of grammar since my head is focused on engineering rather than English these days but picking up a grammar book would do kids a world better than playing a simple game.
Seeing the grammar people use on the web makes me want to stab myself with an ice pick.
As for math/physics...find a friend/teacher and go over all the basics. Kids seem to sneak by with gaping holes in their skills, teachers don't give a damn anymore. Sit down and think about your weaknesses and attack them.
I wouldn't worry too much about it though. Chances are, if you give a sh*t about the test, you have the will to be successful in the world.
