Synopsis

Seventeen million students between the ages of 18 and 24 enroll in a college program every year. The majority of those students know the value of a No. 2 pencil and the educated guess. But don't worry--one of those elements is not needed here!Ripe for parody, standardized test prep books certainly teach the average student many things: spelling their own name correctly, what an analogy is, the difference between "ennui" and "enervate," and how fast that train headed west from Chicago must be traveling.But none of this information is useful, and very little of it relates to a student's real life. Provocative math problems should help one decide the percentage of dateable guys in a college dorm; crazy word problems can show a graduate how to be creative in drafting their resume without actually lying; and snarky analogies are to tests what humor is to readers!Endorsed by no one, accepted everywhere it is, the downright dirty and completely useless B.S.A.T. represents both the fun missing from the standardized tests and the best time-waster that doesn't need a dial-up connection!

John Forster is an award-winning humorist and songwriter whose work has been recorded by Faith Hill and Tom Chapin, among many others. His witty topical songs are featured on NPR's Morning Edition, while his sassy work for children has earned him four Grammy nominations. A graduate of Harvard, John must also answer for the musical version of Freaky Friday. He lives in the Lower Hudson Valley with his wife and son, both guinea pigs for the BSAT.Marc Segan's early experiments with penciling in circles on test forms got him into Princeton, where he majored in beer pong with a minor in Philosophy. Later he quit law school to become an inventor. That questionable move led to Hallmark's first musical greeting card. He lives in NYC with his wife, cookbook author and lecturer Francine Segan, and their two kids, both of whom had great success using the BSAT to prepare for the SAT.
