Finding the errors with Mark Liberman

One of my favorite blogs, Language Log, sometimes takes a look at the SAT and critiques its assumptions. Here’s  Mark Liberman’s classic essay on the test, and here’s a newer post investigating the grammar of one particular question.  Warning: serious grammar ahead, but you can skip all of that and still get the main point: the SAT is a flawed test.

Does that mean you still have to take it? Sorry, probably yes.
