Prep for the SAT? Do people really do that?

So Ann Althouse has a post up about an Orlando Patterson op-ed in the New York Times. The op-ed includes this sentence:

Young white Americans are very much into [hip-hop, professional basketball and homeboy fashions], but selectively; they know when it is time to turn off Fifty Cent and get out the SAT prep book.


Do people really prep for the SAT? I've heard about this for decades now, but I don't think I know anyone who has ever actually done anything more than get a decent night's sleep before hand. (And I actually failed to do that.)
