A Bunch of Education Books


Preschool Math at Home: simple activities to build the best possible foundation for your child by Kate Snow. Multiple activities for counting and learning numbers.

50 Successful Stanford Application Essays by Gene and Kelly Tanabe. I know a kid who was seriously bummed when his early admission app was turned down by Stanford a couple years ago. He was in a funk for a couple months. He then visited M.I.T. and loved the place and the people. Now he rarely goes back home - even for Christmas and summer.

Ultimate Guide to America's Best Colleges 2017. Let's look up Gustavus Adolphus. Holy Mackerel! Tuition is $39,550. Zoinks!

SAT 2017. DO you remember your SAT score? I sure don't. I suppose it was an OK score, but obviously not good enough to remember.

ASVAB Premier 2017-2018. Six practice tests. I have never taken an ASVAB exam. I am tempted to try a practice exam but fear getting a low score and feeling like a fool.

The Ultimate Scholarship Book 2017. Including the Young American Creative Patriotic Art Awards Program (p.201) and Polish National Alliance Scholarship (p. 643).

ACT 2017. I do not remember my ACT score either. It was decent but not great.

How to Get Money for College 2017.  I randomly opened a page and found the listing for Linfield College. I applied for a library job there almost 20 years ago. A few years after applying for that job I found my introductory letter in an old computer. Wow, was that letter a stinker; just plain awful.
