The SAT has ruled the roost for as long as most of us can remember. You either love it or hate it. Most hate it. Count me among that demographic.
I used to do SAT prep. I started with my daughter and son and then branched out, including it as part of my comprehensive independent admissions counseling work. I was amazed at some of the improvements I saw in my students' scores. I said "some" because not all of them experienced a dramatic increase in their numbers. However, the simple fact that some did experience a remarkable increase answers the question posed in the title of this post. Yes, Virginia, the SAT is coachable.
