Performance coach Ben Bernstein delivers a comprehensive training guide on how to improve test scores. These lessons avoid memorization and answering strategies—and instead address the test-taker individually to determine what they need to perform their best at test time. Based on 50 years of teaching experience and 35 years of practice as a clinical psychologist, this book distills best practices used by elite athletes, performing artists, and top business executives to create a system that can be applied to any test, including the SAT, ACT, LSAT, MCAT, GRE, GMAT, licensing exams, finals, and even driving tests. The system trains test takers to be calm, confident, and focused: the dependable "three-legged stool" for successful performance. Also includes special chapters for parents and teachers, as well as online access to additional test-prep material for individual use.
