July 14, 2010 The Julian News 7 WhatYou Need To KnowTo Prepare For College (NAPSA)--Here's news many parents may be happy to hear: Parents don't have to invest thou- sands of dollars in prep courses to help their children get ready for the SAT college entrance exam. The SAT is the most widely used college admission test. It is administered seven times a year in the U.S., with more than 2 million students taking it every year. Although test prep companies would like you to believe they can dramatically improve your perfor- mance, studies have shown that the benefit may be minimal. Several recent studies show that short-term test preparation only increases scores by about the same amount as taking the test a second time. The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) released an analysis last year showing that, contrary to the claims of test prep companies, coaching had minimal impact in improving SAT scores--about 10 to 20 points on average in mathe- matics and five to 10 points in critical reading. The best way to get ready for the SAT, say experts at The Col- lege Board, is to do well in school, take challenging courses, study hard and read as much as possi- ble. There are no tricks or short- cuts to testing success. One way to do your best on test day is to familiarize yourself with the SAT format and question types in advance. Understanding the test format can help students feel more relaxed, but that doesn't necessarily require expensive test There are many free and low-cost materials that can help students prepare to do their best on the SAT. prep. In fact, test prep courses may not have access to actual SAT questions. Students can familiarize them- selves with the SAT by utilizing the College Board's official SAT practice materials available at http://sat.collegeboard.com. This site offers many free and low-cost practice options for the SAT, including a free, full-length offi- cial practice test, the SAT Ques- tion of the Day and the only study guide on the market that uses real test questions from the test maker. There's also an 18-lesson on- line course featuring 10 SAT prac- tice tests and more than 600 questions that students can access from any computer with an Internet connection. The site also offers plenty of helpful tips and test-taking approaches for all three sections of the SAT for students who want to do their best on test day.

Make A Difference In Your Life In Medicine (NAPSA)-Exercise, good nutrition and controlling stress are all excellent ways to maintain wellness, but sometimes medicines, a device or a certain procedure may also be needed. The step-by-step process that tests if new medical approaches work is called a clinical trial. Each trial seeks better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose or treat a disease or improve quality of life. They can include testing a new drug for the treatment of high blood pressure, an inhaler for asthma, the impact of community education on preventing the onset of diabetes, or the effects of massage therapy on treating patients with cancer. Discoveries that improve health are not possible without volunteers. Each year, more than 40,000 trials are ongoing in the U.S. that require large numbers of volunteers.
