For those who sat through the SAT this Sat.

Saturday, March 10th was a day many high school students took that most dreaded of exams, the Scholastic Aptitude Test, better known as the SAT. For those who dare, here are a few SAT-related links:

The Eats, Shoots & Leaves Punctuation Quiz (via The Presurfer)

An SAT-type Math Quiz

The story of Colin Fahey, who at the ripe age of 33, re-took the SAT in 2003 with the intention of getting a perfect score -- of zero. Turns out it's harder than you might think. Yes, it is a bit slow-going at the outset, but it really picks up about halfway through the article. Hmm, I see he re-re-took the test again in 2005. In both instances, while failing to fail completely, he does manage to have a lot of fun in the process.

Is it true that students who take the SAT are awarded 200 points just for spelling their names correctly?
