I have a problem with our approach to standardized tests. For the SAT, ACT, LSAT, GRE, everything, we study our butts off to get a high score, but what are we proving? That we're capable of learning all the nuances of a test? Isn't the point to discover how well we are likely to perform in school?

So, wouldn't it be easier if no one studied and we all took it cold-turkey? I think this would be the best option. What do you think?
