    2020 SHSAT Handbook NYC Specialized High Schools + HS Guide

    I just did a quick youtube about the new 2020 HS Guide as well as the 2019-2020 SHSAT Handbook with some of my initial thoughts/concerns. It can be found here:

    I'm very familiar with the test questions over the years, and I will follow-up with more thoughts once I get a chance to look at the questions contained in this new handbook.

    Questions? HMU!!

    (I will still follow up with more thoughts once I go through the Grade 9 questions as well.)

    The DOE is real messed up, so Not Yet. It's unclear how many paper copies have even gone out, if any.

    I mentioned I'd follow up once I got to look through the Grade 9 questions. Some deets:

    * Additional Grade 8 grid-ins found later on in the handbook follow through with math comments made in the videos
    * Grade 9 math questions also follow through with math comment made in the videos, in fact, stronger Not a good thing IMO.
    * I found two errors in the Grade 9 answers. One involved question 8 whereas a formatting problem gets written as a chained inequality which will no doubt confuse folks who don't know how to solve and maybe even some who can. As well, question 13 seems to have a write-o kind of situation.
