I was told by my teachers that you really couldn't study for the SAT because it was a measure of how much you learned through your entire school I didn't. I took the first one cold. Scored poorly but got a sense of the test experience. I took it a second time, again without studying, and scored good enough to gain college admiddion. My math score sucked but my english score was quite respectable.

However, when I am done I will happily help anyone here find the area under whatever curve is bothering you.

The obvious solution is to vaccinate everyone within a ten mile radius of Kennedy. This isn't rocket science.
