Every math, biology, or US history course is taught differently in each and every school throughout the United States. Which makes it almost impossible to compare the caliber of these subjects and the caliber of these students, especially when trying to make decisions on college admissions.
For that reason, an excellent indicator of mastery in a specific subject is an SAT Subject Test. It allows a standardized measure of achievement across the country and can be a valuable indicator of academic ability, in a way the normal SAT or ACT are not.
So to help navigate the ins and outs of this suite of assessments, here’s a quick and comprehensive guide to all things SAT Subject Test.
What exactly is a resume, you ask? "A resume is like a skirt; it needs to be long enough to cover the subject but short enough to be interesting." According to someone somewhere on LinkedIn. XD But all jokes aside, a resume is one of the most important tools in your arsenal, either as a student or professional. It gives a concise yet thorough summary of your background, qualifications, and skills so that future employers (or anyone, really) can get a sense of whether you are the right person for the position in question.
I’m sure all of you guys know how important a resume is, and I don’t know why it’s not taught more in schools, but here’s my guide to writing a killer resume. This is how I learned it in 7th grade (thanks Mr. Nalven!), and the template I have been using ever since.
Now that it’s finally summer, my annual let’s-get-productive-and-create-a-schedule-and-study-habits effort is in full swing. To celebrate this almost always failing effort (but not this year! hopefully…) I’ve compiled a list of my five favorite productivity blogs. All of these blogs I read/use on a frequent basis, and of course some are more helpful than others, but I find each of them to be reliable and valuable tools when trying to deal with pretty much anything school related. There are actually a lot more blogs/YouTube channels I follow (cause I’m obsessed with these kind of productivity/student help websites - why I started this blog in the first place) but I’ve pared them down to the ones I find most helpful most frequently.
