Andrei in the office

For the love of standardized testing... learn people!

When I was in high school, I did very well on the SAT.

I unfortunately did well because the questions were 'coded'.

What this meant was that you could solve some style of questions without knowing the answer.

Here's an example I came across tonight on facebook:

In Stargate-SG1, What was the SGC designation for the Goa'uld homeworld?

  • P3X-932
  • P3X-888
  • P3Z-888
  • P6Y-888

I have no idea what the answer is. But I can guess it.

Below the cut is why I guessed it and how to get this type of question right almost every time.
