Very few of us actually enjoy taking tests. Chief among those that are generally dreaded is the Standard Aptitude Test. Some hate the verbal component. Others hold their nose, cross their fingers, and hope for the best doing the math. There are those, though, that have fond memories of an astounding verbal score. So we offer up our own version of the standardized test analogy section. There is good news. Your future college prospects and possibly career prospects don't hinge on your success rate for this fun quiz. The less than good news, though, is that there are no prep books out there to get you ready for the mind-bending awesomeness of the analogies we've put together here. Ready for the SAT?

The SAT was first developed by Princeton prof Carl Brigham in the 1920s. In 1926, a few thousand college applicants took his test. Nevertheless, it wasn't until a Harvard dean was looking for a way to decide between scholarship applicants, that the test gained more credibility. The same Harvard dean, in 1938, talked all College Board member schools into using the SAT as a uniform exam for scholarship applicants.
Nevertheless, it was the war that truly saw the SAT staking its claim to admission test dominance. In 1942, all pre-existing College Board admissions tests were abolished, leaving the SAT as the last test standing. In 1944, the SAT was administered to more than 300,000 people all over the country in a single day. Four years later, the Educational Testing Service was chartered, and the SAT became the basic college admissions test undertaken by millions of prospective applicants. Today, the SAT remains ”the big test” when it comes to college applications, although the ACT's prominence has risen.
