After acing the SAT, students head to college and enter a huge variety of careers, from comedy to computer programming to creative design. Several of these former students sought to help others conquer the feared test at Boston Test Prep’s online-only study center. The staff designed the program to appeal to kids of the digital age—students can log on anytime, anywhere, and direct their own studies. Some might read through all the lessons and then work on practice quizzes, and others might leap right into the quizzes, pausing to link to lessons and slideshows on questions that stymie them, such as, "How many bears are there?" They’ll also learn tips on taking the test, such as mastering common question types, identifying tricks, and making smart guesses. As students work, a points system motivates them to hit a high score, much like in a video game.

Though the name suggests a focus on bartending, Mixology Training covers just about every stage of drink creation, from brewing beer to mixing cocktails to unmixing cocktails at the end of the night. Brewmaster and Belgian beer enthusiast Bob Sylvester leads the Mastering Beer class, where students learn about grains, yeast, and hops, and the processes that transform them into beer. The bartending class, on the other hand, promises students will be able to master the art in a week or faster, and incorporates classic drinks as well as newer concoctions.

AES Languages, or Adaptive Education Services, expands cultural horizons and crushes communication barriers with dynamic language programs for businesses and individual students. Experienced instructors teach tongues to pronounce delicate sonants and powerful plosives as they stretch minds toward fluency. Foreign-language book clubs and immersive trips to international locales boost familiarity with a country's language and customs and make navigating international conversation easier than paying a guide to make prewritten subtitles.

Professional bartenders teach in classrooms set up as fully functioning bars. The facilities present lifelike conditions for students to learn skills such as the proper shake and pour for a variety of cocktails, muddling raw ingredients, and getting the right amount of head on a draft beer. Courses also cover the technical elements of bartending, which may include setting up drink stations, understanding liquor laws and board-of-health requirements, and operating payment systems that accept both credit cards and gold ingots.

The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
