This book really helped me take control of my child's test anxiety. He was more relaxed during the test and showed the potential that he needed to have good grades on his college applications. He applied to ivy leagues, such as Harvard, Princeton and Yale. He got early admission into Harvard. Thank you so much, Dr. Casbarro, you really helped out my family and saved my marriage.
