Kaplan to train you for the SATs through your DS

For those of you looking to bone up on your college-level analogies, Kaplan, Inc. has teamed with Aspyr Media to bring you a SAT prep title for the DS. The project is still early in development, so there is no name or screens yet. Sadly, that's about all we have to go on right now.
We must say, the decision to bring such an application to the DS shows (to us, at least) the kind of smarts that would score well on the SATs.

I wonder how this will get implemented for widespread use. Sell a bunch of copies to large school districts? Advertise on the main website for ambitious youngsters looking for any form of practice to use? Rental system? Homebrew?
Personally, this is something that would have mildly interested me, but ultimately would never pay for. Of course, I'm usually not the kind of person who buys books to study for standardized tests. That's what libraries are for. Perhaps with the growing trend of public library systems integrating videogames, this would be right up their alley. Hmm...

If it's much cheaper than getting tests it might work.

At least it will be much more convenient than a ten pound book.

GUH. IF ONLY I WERE LIKE, two years younger! This would've been useful in high school. ...Well, maybe. Though I guess I could retake the SAT for kicks if I felt like it. XD
