A.R. Tests

My 9yo asked me why I was reading a book that was obviously outside of my preferred genre. I told him I had been asked to review it on my blog. He cocked his cute head to the side and said, "Oh, so you take an A.R. test on it and then if you do good on it other people will listen to what you think about the book." I laughed and told him I graduated from college and was done with tests. He didn't like that very much! I explained to my son that Book reviews are mostly a personal opinion. There is no formula or test to show if the reviewer understood what they read. It made me think that I need to work harder to understand each book I've been asked to review and make sure my review is helpful to both the author and the reader. When's the last time you took a test? Do you think an A.R. test for reviewers would be helpful or just a waste of time?
