Our main goal in this book is to use stories, interviews, examples, and study techniques to encourage the reader to ‘see’ standardized testing differently. By using these two simple strategies we call the 2 Laws of Standardized Testing, you will begin to look at the entire test differently.

Law 1: “What is the question really asking?”, means look at each question carefully to understand the ‘real question,’ which is often within a sentence with multiple questions.

Law 2: “ What tool does the author of the test want me to use?”, means understand your audience and their goal to find an objective method to see if you understand a set of predetermined tools like: formulas, definitions, language rules, how to make a logical argument, or poke holes in selection or statement.

That's it. It's not a test of your intelligence or even how many different ways you can cleverly figure out a math problem…it is a tool test.
