Many colleges use your SAT scores to help them assess your readiness to do tough college work. It assess skills that are essential to success in a competitive liberal-arts college: written argumentation, critical reading, and mathematical analysis. Competitive colleges need the SAT because course grades are, unfortunately, far from objective measures of your academic ability. Teachers rarely give out grades consistently and without bias. We all know that every school has easy graders and hard graders.
Select the proper HIV diagnostic testing plan for infants, children, and adolescents. Plan the comprehensive management of HIV-exposed infants.
Understand the principles, monitoring, and complications of HIV treatment in infants, children, and adolescents. Since the first description of infants with human immunodeficiency virus HIV infection in the early s, 1 2 tremendous advances have been made in the understanding, prevention, and treatment of HIV infection.
Sexual transmission is an important mode of transmission for adolescents, especially for adolescent girls in settings with generalized HIV epidemics and for young men who have sex with men MSM.
Less common routes of transmission include transfusion with blood products tainted with HIV before routine screening of blood products for HIV was established , percutaneous exposure, and, rarely, HIV-infected caretakers chewing or warming food in their mouths and then feeding it to infants and children. HIV-2 causes infection predominantly in people from parts of West Africa, but it is less transmissible and generally associated with lower levels of viral replication and less severe disease.
Such latent infection of long-lived memory T cells underlies a main barrier to sterilizing cure of HIV infection. In settings outside the United States where infant replacement feeding confers an unacceptably high risk of HIV-unrelated morbidity and mortality including in many sub-Saharan African countries , the additional strategy of administering ARV drugs to mothers or infants during breastfeeding has become an effective means to allow breastfeeding while reducing the risk of HIV transmission.
HIV testing is recommended as early as possible in each pregnancy, including for women who tested HIV negative during a prior pregnancy. Seattle Street Photography, Courtesy of the artists.
Bruce Barnbaum was drawn to photography through his love of the landscape, and as time passed his interests expanded into architectural subjects, to abstracts, and anything that he considered visually interesting. Although he photographs and prints both black and white and color, he is most well known for his black and white work as it is his area of prime interest.
He has been teaching workshops since , founding the Owens Valley Photography Workshops in and the Photographic Arts Workshops in He served on destroyers and submarines while in the Navy. After retirement he changed a photographic hobby into a career.
His images are in black and white in the West Coast tradition and tend toward minimalism. Jay Dusard Chapter 11—Print Bleaching. After teaching photography for seven years at Prescott College, Arizona, Jay Dusard was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to do view camera portraits of working cowboys, buckaroos, and vaqueros from Canada to Mexico.
The darkroom was a large closet in his home in Webster Groves, Missouri. At about the same time he began taking oboe lessons. His photographic hobby waxed and waned through moves to New York City, Parkersburg, West Virginia, a short stint in the Army Corps of Engineers, and back to his birthplace in Morgantown, West Virginia, to study engineering.
His photographs of conductors, musicians, and guest artists appeared in many program booklets. He is retired and living in Tanner, West Virginia. Richard Garrod Chapter 1—How safe is your Safelight?
His photographs have been printed in photography publications, including books, magazines, catalogs, corporate annual reports, cards, calendars, posters, and appointment books. Henry makes photographs merely for the enjoyment of it and considers himself as the audience. His work keeps him seeking the light, the design, and the order that is important to him. He set up a primitive darkroom in the cellar and was soon making contact prints.
This kindled a life long love of black and white photography. After much experimentation, he created a new pyro developer he called PMK.
About he had a one-man show and photographers who saw it immediately began to clamor for a workshop with his new developer. Gordon taught many workshops during the s and decided there might be enough interest to write a book on the subject. The Book of Pyro was published in and was immediately successful. Gordon has written for various photography magazines, predominately View Camera magazine.
He has had numerous shows around the country and his work has been published here and in Europe.
Sandy King is landscape photographer who prints primarily with alternative processes, including carbon, kallitype, and palladium. He is a well-known carbon printer and has conducted numerous workshops on carbon printing, both in the United States and abroad. His black and white prints are held in museums and private collections throughout the world.
Just as Bernhard helped liberate the female form from the titillating gaze, so Nuseibeh works to provide new non-violent modes of access to Islamic culture. Nuseibeh has been the recipient of a Watson Fellowship and a Fulbright award.
The Ostermans are known internationally as respected artists, historians, and teachers of historic photographic processes.
His name has become inseparably linked with the Lith printing process which, through his books, has become accessible to all and now enjoys widespread popularity as a creative printing process. He is widely published and exhibited and his prints are held in public and private collections around the world. Ryuijie Chapter 10—Spilt Toning with Polytoner. Born in Otaru, Japan, Ryuijie showed an inclination to the arts at an early age.
He learned underwater photography while stationed in Guam pursuing his long-time interest in scuba diving. John Sexton is known worldwide as a photographer, master print maker, workshop instructor, and lecturer. Author of four award-winning books, Quiet Light, Listen to the Trees, Places of Power, and most recently, Recollections: Three Decades of Photographs, Sexton is best known for his luminous black and white images of the natural environment.
A former director of the Ansel Adams Workshops, he has conducted hundreds of photography workshops throughout the United States and abroad.
Sexton served as photographic assistant and consultant to photographer Ansel Adams from to John Wimberley has been photographing the landscape in black and white since David Wood Chapter 13—Contributed valuable content and formulas for reversal processing. David Wood has worked as a professional photographer for over seventeen years in New York City. David now enjoys a client base of over two thousand professional and advanced-amateur photographers hailing from six continents.
He personally handles hundreds of rolls a week at his Denver, Colorado lab to insure the superior results. David resides with his wife Kathi and his Jack Russell terrier Buddy in their modest one hundred-year-old brick home located above the dr5 lab.

Since the cost and terms of registration change from time to time, check the College Board web site, www. The site also contains all the information you need to apply for special accommodations for students with disabilities. In most cases, no, but these scores are becoming more important as college admissions become more selective.
Without exception, high SAT scores will provide you with an admission advantage regardless of what kind of school you are applying to.
Generally, the more selective a college is, the more important the personal factors are, such as extracurricular activities and special talents. Some large or specialized schools will weigh the SAT or ACT scores more heavily than others, and even declare a cutoff score for applicants.
If you have any questions about how heavily a certain college weighs your SAT or ACT scores, call the admissions office and ask. How is the SAT scored? The median 50th percentile score for each section is usually between and Each scaled score is based on a raw score for that section. If you skip a question, your raw score remains the same. Because of the wrong answer penalty described above, blind guessing on multiple-choice questions will likely harm your score in the short run.
If you are guessing on no more than five questions, be conservative and guess only when you can eliminate two or more choices. If you are guessing on more than ten questions, though, you can be more aggressive. Answer all of the questions on which you can eliminate at least one choice before guessing. So, if you have any kind of guess, fill it in. Can I take the SAT with extended time? Some students with special needs can take the SAT with accommodations such as extended time.
If you have a learning disability that has been diagnosed by a psychologist and feel that special accommodations would benefit you, talk to your guidance counselor about how to qualify and register. When will I receive my scores? About ten days later, a written report will be mailed to you free of charge.
Any schools to which you release your scores will receive them by mail at about the same time you do. Can I get the actual test back when I receive my scores? This service provides you with a copy of the test booklet, a record of your answers, the answer key, scoring instructions, and information about the types and difficulty of each question. You may order this service when you register or up to five months after the date of the test.
You may also order a copy of your answer sheet only for a smaller fee. You can find information about these services in your score report. Are some SATs easier than others? They are wrong. The grading curves are determined ahead of time for each test.
Take it when you are best prepared for it. A shotgun sprays dozens of shotgun pellets over a wide area, hoping to hit something, in contrast to a rifle, which is far more accurate and efficient. Both approaches are occasionally somewhat helpful to students, but neither is close to an optimal approach.
Just as sugar pills can give patients the feeling that they are getting better in the short run, yet cause serious harm in the long run by discouraging them from seeking real medical help, so do testtaking tricks give students a false sense of confidence. Worse, they often encourage poor thinking habits, which hurt students in college. Imagine any professional—a base ballplayer, for instance—training by simply memorizing standard procedures for every possible scenario that might arise.
There are too many to count, so the effort is doomed from the start. Instead, real experts develop their expertise through active, structured and flexible knowledge, and robust general problem-solving skills that are particular to their field of expertise. A good baseball player learns to react to novel situations, to analyze situations on the fly, and to use his strengths flexibly. If a major-league hitter becomes too rigid and standardized in his approach, he will never be able to handle a new pitcher or a new hitting situation.
Since , the SAT has raised its standards. It now includes a written essay, more reading passages, tougher math concepts, and questions about grammar and usage. It is, more than ever, an academic reasoning test, requiring creativity, analytical skill, insight, knowledge, logic, and genuine academic skills.
Students who see very large score improvements on the SAT do it through smart practice and by systematically improving their creative problem-solving skills. Based on the work of Christopher Black, founder of College Hill Coaching in Greenwich, Connecticut, it focuses on two elements: structured 7 core knowledge and robust, flexible problem-solving skills that apply to a wide array of problem situations.
Structured Core Knowledge Structured core knowledge is the essential knowledge of the concepts, skills and relationships in a particular subject area. In most game situations, chess masters instantly intuit the best move because of their vast structured core knowledge culled from actively analyzing hundreds of previous games.
Similarly, good doctors can quickly diagnose their patients because of their vast structured core knowledge. With smart training, you will build your structured core knowledge of the SAT.
Robust problem-solving skills Okay, so chess masters become masters by analyzing hundreds and hundreds of games.
But how does this help you on the SAT? But you have been reading, writing and doing math problems for many years, and if you have approached them mindfully, you have accumulated a great deal of structured core knowledge in those subject areas. The keys to success on the SAT are, first, using that structured core knowledge effectively on the SAT rather than just applying standard test-taking tricks , and building your structured core knowledge through mindful problem-solving.
How do some people seem to learn so much more quickly than others? The key is in how they solve new problems. If you use mindful problemsolving skills, then every new problem reinforces old knowledge and builds new knowledge. Poor problemsolvers just apply a standardized procedure and move on to the next problem, hoping that they applied the procedure correctly. Good problem-solvers, on the 8 other hand, mindfully employ the eight reasoning skills that we at College Hill Coaching summarize with the mnemonic MAPS CATCH: mapping, analyzing, finding patterns, simplifying, connecting to structured knowledge, considering alternatives, thinking logically, and checking work.
Do you always know what to look for in a passage? Do you consolidate information as you read? Do you notice the structure of the passage as you read? Do you think about different ways of phrasing and arranging your thoughts? Do you address the objections a reader might have to your points? Are you continually checking that your writing is clear and forceful to your reader? Do you look for patterns or repetition in the problem so that you can simplify it?
Do you consider the different approaches you could take to solving the problem? Do you have good strategies for checking your work? For one thing, those who finish happy are those who take their training seriously. This is like training for a marathon merely by buying a pair of magic socks. First, physical health yields mental benefits.
Second, the task of getting your body in shape teaches you a lot about getting your mind in shape. When you are training to run a race like a marathon, for instance, you learn quickly that consistency pays off. Getting out there every day and logging miles is critical. Similarly, consistency pays off in SAT prep.
Similarly, good SAT training teaches you to listen to your mind; you learn which problems you can tackle easily, which are challenging but manageable, and which ones to skip. This will help you enormously on test day.
These exercises help them to eliminate distractions and unnecessary tension so that they can do their best. You should practice these exercises, too. Here are some that work wonders. It is also amazingly simple. Sit in an upright chair with your hands on your knees, or sit upright on the floor with your legs crossed. Close your eyes and focus your attention on your breathing. Do not alter your breathing at first, just notice it. After a few breaths, you will notice that it will become slower and deeper.
This deep breathing is the key to relaxation. When we are tense and anxious, our breathing becomes short and shallow, and the oxygen flow through the body is diminished.
Next, focus on gently controlling your breathing so that you extend both the in breath and the out breath. The out breath should be slow and controlled, and should produce a light, hollow, raspy sound at the back of your throat. Do not hold your breath at any point.
Your in breath should move smoothly into an out breath. After a few breaths like this, you will notice that your mind will begin to wander. You will think about other things, perhaps about responsibilities that you have, and your body will tense up briefly. This practice of noticing and releasing distractions is an essential part of focused breathing practice. After a few minutes of focused breathing, your body is relaxed and your mind is alert, so you are prepared to do your homework or take your test.
Sit in an upright chair, or lie on the floor. Close your eyes. Bring your attention to the muscles in your head and face. These are usually the first muscles to become tense when we are anxious. When your face and head feel relaxed, move to your neck and shoulders. Often, the tension in your muscles goes so deep that you must focus on it for a minute or so before that tension will release.
Then move systematically down to your arms, your torso and back, your hips, your legs, and your feet. With each stage of relaxation, you should feel the tension flowing out of you like sand from a bag. After several minutes of systematic relaxation, your body is relaxed, but your mind is focused, so you are ready to do your work.
If exercise to you means grunting out reps with a barbell, or running with music blasting from your earphones, then your exercise strategy may be more of an assault on your body and mind than a healthful practice. Certain exercise disciplines have evolved over centuries to provide mindful, healthful practices.
