This is a less than flattering critique of New Oriental and it's services.

The topic is interesting in terms of "test preparation" because it highlights the fundamental problem, that tests only verify your ability to respond to a limited set of questions, and have no other bearing on reality.

To the extent that EDU focuses on "test preparation" as opposed to education, I could see this as a valid criticism. I don't yet know enough about the company to evaluate how significant this criticism may be.

<side note> Where is everyone? Can't believe I'm message #6 !!
