If you want to get rich, get involved in the multi-billion dollar standardized testing industry. Test creators, software and hardware companies, tutoring companies, and college consulting firms get richer every time you have to take a test; and their coffers swell when some genius decides to change a high-stakes test (i.e the "new and improved" SAT). That means new software, new materials, new everything. I'm no economist, but I think this is called planned obsolescence--the same principle that forces you to purchase a new iPhone because the new OS won't support your existing one.
So where does all of this skepticism leave you? You still have to take the redesigned SAT in April (or the ACT, LSAT, GMAT, MCAT, or some other evil acronym) and your admission will depend, somewhat, on your performance on said test. Some faceless admissions counselor will look at that score and triangulate it with your GPA, recommendations, personal statement, and some other factors of which you may or may not be aware (for example, your Twitter feed--yes, they look at that).
How to approach the test then?
First, keep in mind that you can try your best on something that you don't completely agree with. So approach the test with a balance of respect and dismissiveness. Remember that, in the grand scheme of your life, it means nothing. That's right. Nothing. Your value as a human being has nothing to do with this exam. That said, if you want to get into Michigan you will need to score X on the new SAT. And yet, I would argue that if a university does not admit you because of test score, then you probably don't want to go to that university. This is not unlike the guy on Match.com who can't get a date because he has a beard; consider it a great way to weed out non-prospects. Further, anyone who asks you what you got on the SAT (or any standardized test for that matter) is doing you a favor by eliminating him or herself as a potential friend. It's just plain classless and ugly to do such a thing.
So over the next few weeks, you will probably be doing a lot of test prep both in and out of school. It probably will help you, but it may not. You probably will do well on the test, but you may not. Remember that what's most important is that you do the best you can, then quickly remind yourself that it doesn't matter. If that seems paradoxical, it's because it is--so is life.
Plus, you can always take it again. And the testing industry will be happy to take your money.
