In this holiday gift-giving season, parents often search for ideal gifts that will benefit their teenagers and be appreciated. Some items fall more into one category than the other.
An extremely pragmatic item to give your high school child is College Board’s “Official SAT Study Guide.” It includes eight full-length SAT exams that mirror exactly what you child will face on his/her test day. Any student who diligently works with this book and understands the correct answers to all of the questions is on track to earn extremely impressive SAT scores – and likely garner serious scholarship money. An accompanying gift could be College Board’s “Book of Majors,” which explains scores of potential majors and the colleges that offer degrees in each one.
