Anxious parents spending unnecessarily for G&T prep

A tipster tells me that desperate parents, unable to believe that the DOE would provide useful resources, are shelling out $45 to buy an OLSAT test prep kit from a "Ph.D. testing specialist" who hawks her wares online. The sample OLSAT questions look pretty much identical to those in the G&T handbooks released this week. It's unclear whether Robin McFarlane set up shop before this year or whether she's taking advantage of New York City parents' nerves, but either way she must be thrilled that the OLSAT is the DOE's test of choice.
