Hey guys, just a quick post here to announce a new feature I quietly launched on the site a couple weeks ago; people who have found it seem to like it so far. You can now sign up to receive practice math questions, automatically delivered to your inbox once a day. I’m calling it “The Daily (more…)

# Minor updates to the Math Guide

A few weeks ago, I made some minor adjustments to the Math Guide to incorporate the additional official material released by the College Board: tests 5 and 6 (download them here). If you purchase new copies of the Math Guide from the PWN store (or anywhere else) now, your book will have breakdowns of those (more…)

# Site update: Math Guide Owner verification

Just a quick bit of business here: I’ve automated the Math Guide Owner membership process. You no longer need to email proof of purchase to me to gain access (everybody at once: YAASSSS!!)—all you need to do is go to this page, scroll to the bottom, and verify your book ownership by answering one randomized question about (more…)

# March SAT scores and the new concordance tables

Big day today in SAT land—March SAT scores are finally out for most test-takers, and the College Board has released a score conversion app that allows users to compare old SAT scores to new SAT scores. I messed around with the converter a bit tonight. Interestingly, new SAT scores seem to be higher than old (more…)

# The Math Guide for the new SAT is (finally) available!

At long last, the fourth edition of the Math Guide is available for purchase at Amazon.com, Google Play, and this site (although I’m struggling a bit to keep inventory in stock on this site, so please be patient if you buy directly from me). It will eventually be available at other online locations (e.g., B&N) (more…)

# Updates on the new Math Guide: Digital version available now!

The digital version of the 4th edition of the Math Guide is available now from the Google Play store in every country where Google Play sells books. I will have an announcement about the paperback version soon. (One thing that’s not done on the Google Play book is the cover. I’m working with someone to update (more…)

# Poll: How hard was the January SAT?

If you took the January 2016 SAT, and want to help inform the argument about how lenient or punishing the scoring table might be with some data, answer this simple poll.

Relative to other tests you’ve taken (real and/or practice), how hard did you find the January 2016 SAT?

# The East Coast’s Reprieve Means Big Discounts

If you live on the East Coast, then chances are pretty good that your January 23rd SAT just recently became your February 20th SAT. That’s a bummer, no? Then again, maybe you’re happy—you’ve just been given a whole extra month to study. My suggestion: take advantage. I was planning on taking my Math Guide and Essay (more…)

# Poll: How hard was the December 2015 SAT?

This is becoming tradition at this point (see results from October and November). As long as you guys keep responding and finding this useful, I’ll keep it up. If you took the December 2015 SAT, and want to help inform the argument about how lenient or punishing the scoring table might be with some data, answer this simple (more…)

# Poll: How hard was the November SAT?

This survey resulted in some useful (or at least interesting) data when I did it for the October SAT, so I figured I’d do it again. Relative to other tests you’ve taken (real and/or practice), how hard did you find the November 2015 SAT? This survey is over, but you can still view the results.

# October SAT scores are out today

…but if you took the test, you probably already knew that. In all likelihood, if you’re reading this blog, you were probably up clicking refresh on the College Board website at 5am so that you could see how you did the very second scores went live. I really, truly hope that when you did see (more…)

# Good luck on the new PSAT tomorrow.

Good luck to all of you taking the brand new PSAT tomorrow! I look forward to hearing your reactions to it.

# Poll: How hard was the October SAT?

Relative to other tests you’ve taken (real and/or practice), how hard did you find the SAT today? This survey is over, but you can still view the results.

# Good luck on the October SAT!

(An actual fortune cookie I got a few days ago.) I know a LOT of you are taking the October SAT. By the time I’m posting this, hopefully many of you will already be in bed, sleeping soundly in confident anticipation of your morning victories. I wish you well.

# Site hiccups

Those of you who have been using the site regularly over the past few days might have noticed a few site hiccups—either images not loading, or the whole site not loading, logins not working, etc. Let’s be clear: all that happened because I’m a tutor, not a web developer, but I still insist on doing (more…)
