Why Test Prep Matters

posted in: Testing | 0

Testing Update: The July ACT will NOT be offered in California or New York in 2018. There will be an August SAT for students who want to test during the summer, so please plan accordingly.

Here’s what you need to know about testing:

Higher scores can result in BIG scholarships. Students & families are always trying to find new ways to pay off their rapidly-increasing college costs. With scholarships, students can free themselves of some of that financial burden. Many scholarships are tied to higher test scores, so in a way, consider test prep a “job” that will pay off later.

Focusing on test prep can dramatically improve your scores. The score you get on your SAT or ACT can play a major role in determining where you are admitted to college. If you plan ahead and spend time preparing you will be more likely to get the scores you’re aiming for. Starting early pays off. We recommend that students prep for testing during the summer before junior year. It’s a luxury to head into senior year with testing already done—it just makes your life easier and less stressful!

We recommend various tried & true test prep options. There are dozens of methods & programs that can get you well prepared for standardized tests. A lot depends on how you learn effectively and what your time constraints are. We can assess your needs & provide you with recommendations that fit you best.
