Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Five years ago, an annoying girl I didn't really like asked me about Kaplan. More out of greed than goodwill, I explained that Kaplan was a great company and that they were looking for good teachers, and if she applied could she mention my name because there was a hiring bonus?
A few months later, after she completed her training and started her first class, the $100 check arrived. I figured the right thing to do would be to take this 'Shari' lady out to a (cheap) dinner to thank her. So, after martial arts practice, we headed over to a local noodle place, where we ate and talked.
Too much happened in the five years since then to recount in a single post, but suffice it to say that a shared love of teaching was one of the many things that let our love for each other grow out of disdain. We would share horror stories but also advice, I helping her out with tricky math and she aiding me with her prodigious vocabulary. We were happy when Shari cross-trained for the GRE so we could work out of the same center, excited when a tutoring student asked to split her hours between the two of us, and overjoyed when Shari's Kaplan experience helped her secure a scholarship to Boston University's school of Education.
Since Kaplan and test-prep has been such a large part of our lives together, we wanted to share a part of our lives with all of you preparing for a test. Please enjoy our wedding album, and I wish all of you the same joy that Shari and I are sharing.

Congrats! Looking back now, last year this time, I was still taking that Kaplan course and I was having troubles with my refund and you helped me out a great deal! Excellent experience! My score went up by 30 points! Hope all is going well! _________________
