Lilly Fisher is getting ready to take the SAT in October, but she's not completely sold on the latest study tool designed to tap her generation's thirst for technology. Kaplan, a college-preparation company, recently unveiled an SAT study program available through Apple's iTunes Store and downloadable to the iPod. Kaplan said the program can be customized so that students can study algebra or geometry, take timed or untimed practice tests and vary the difficulty of the questions.

Please visit my free website www.theeasyessay.com .This program has been taught to 7 years olds, LD students, as a college class (and as a prep for SAT, ACT) and been used for interoffice communications, speeches, business, technical and scientific reports, as well as for rehabilitative education; please, see below.
It takes less than 5 minutes to learn and can be taught to a varied group of students at the same time and each will learn to his or her own unique capacity. And a nice side effect is that users begin to communicate logically.
For the technologically inclined, www.theeasyessay.com is an automated information organization program linked to an information retrieval system.
But I promise it is easy.
An Automated Information Organization Program
In most conversations, the majority of time is spent with one person telling the other person why something is true; that is, giving reasons for its validity. This simple concept is the basis for the automated information organization program at the heart of www.theeasyessay.com , except that you do it in writing. That is all that we ask you to do on this site; just give reasons why what you have already stated as a fact is true. We use the essay form because it is the most efficient form of organization available and we automate this organization to limit your supporting statements to proving only the accuracy of your original assertion.
This FREE website makes essay writing easy enough for a seven year old to learn (but has also been taught at the college level) and has the capability of being used as a template for business (including inter office communications), technical or scientific reports. It has also been taught to learning disabled students and may have applications in educational rehabilitation. Due to the simplicity of the process and the fact that the automated program keeps your focus on your original idea, The Easy Essay is perfect for oral presentations, essay exams or use in the SAT, ACT, etc. as the process can be easily replicated without the use of a computer. The program also has a feature which allows the user to expand the basic five paragraph essay to a longer seventeen paragraph paper. The process remains the same; the only thing that changes is the amount of detail you choose to use.
The program takes less than five minutes to learn. So, scan the demo, go to compose, try it and see what it does. You will like it.
www.theeasyessay.com users say this program is the next step in Google® because rather than just locating a fact, it uses a direct link to Google ® to provide the user with the information needed to prove the basic premise and organizes that information in a logical, almost mathematic formula and therefore can be used in any language.
Teachers report that an amazing side effect of using the program is that students start to speak and think more logically.
We at The Easy Essay Inc. believe that by popularizing the PC, Bill Gates gave the world the means to communicate and that www.theeasyessay.com is the method. We also firmly believe that this is too important to charge for.
Please forward this to anywhere it can help. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
