"On the removal of the antonym section, or Opposites attack"
It was a stupid section. I mean. you either knew the word or you didn't. --Test prep tutor on the Educational Testing Service's decision to remove the Antonym section from the S.A.T.
The Educational Service has done away with the antonym section on the S.A.T. Finally, they have done something:
- a) ignominious
Since it only tested the student's vocabulary, the antonym section was essentially:
- a) germane
And besides, the only people who did well on it were:
- a) perspicacious
I can't wait until ETS makes the test perfect by eliminating other sections that test:
- a) reading comprehension
b) problem solving
c) analytical reasoning
d) anything else
