my dd just started her junior year - literally 6 days ago! And all that all the parents are talking/buzzing about is which test is your kid taking AND which tutor are you getting??
Is one test better to take than the other??
what also concerns me is the cost of these tutors from $165/hr and up!! and some of the "courses" run about $1500- $2000 for test preps and tutoring!!!!
My question.. are they nuts for paying for tutors? or am i nuts for not wanting to.. all the kids in question are in the 90-95 average range and i am not sure why i would have to pay SO MUCH for this test. I understand it's importance and maybe - it is because this is NY and some of these people (not me) have megabucks!!
I am told that the tutors have access to past tests (which i think are also on line and in books)..
What am i missing??? She goes to a really good school - so should she still need all this expensive help??
