How a child performs in first grade has little or zero effect on his or her getting into college twelve years later, right? Wrong! With standardized, state-mandated testing starting as early as first grade and continuing through high school, parents across the nation are becoming increasingly concerned that their children may not perform at their grade level. Get Ready for Standardized Tests empowers parents to become active participants in helping even their most test-anxious children acquire the skills needed to excel at their annual exams.
