Looking for a new way to study for the SAT? Try cooking

Preparing for the SAT is one of the most important parts of the college application process. If you're looking for a new way to prep for the test, you might want to consider adding a new book to your Christmas wish list.

Charis Freiman-Mendel's new book, titled Cook Your Way Through the SAT, offers high school seniors a new way to prepare themselves for the college admissions exam. There are 99 recipes in the book, each containing 10 vocabulary words that may appear on the standardized test. Each recipe is followed by a short quiz that tests readers' vocabulary and comprehension skills. Cooking your way through the book could be a great way to prepare for the exam while making delicious meals during the holiday season.

If you're thinking, "How can I find the college for me?", you may want to consider using a college search engine to see if your dream schools require that you submit SAT scores as part of your college application.

Some schools, such as Wake Forest University in North Carolina, do not require applicants to submit their test scores as a mandatory part of their college admissions process, according to the school's website. Check with the schools you're thinking of applying to before you get to work in the kitchen.
