I can understand doing badly at the math portions, but the reading portions? Presumably he needs to be reading and comprehending what he's reading in his day to day job responsibilities.

Why can I understand the math difficulties? Well, I too forget stuff that I don't use very often. I'd have to go look up the all the trig identities if I needed them. But, I wouldn't take this test blind without any refresher.

The advantage "kids" have when they take these standardized tests is that it's very close to fresh in their minds, or at least relatively fresh. That has to count for something.
