New York, NY (March 5, 2014) – The following statement is from Seppy Basili, vice president, Kaplan Test Prep, regarding today’s announcement by the College Board on upcoming changes to the SAT.

“We think it’s terrific that the College Board is making SAT prep widely available for students of all income levels. Not only are they validating that test prep works, but it’s something we’ve been doing for years.  In fact, we hope they extend these kinds of opportunities to their AP programs as well. “

“It’s important to keep in mind that SAT scores have always been a measure of whether a student is prepared for college-level work and everyone should have an opportunity to put their best foot forward. Test prep is about knowing the content, having a strategy and developing confidence. Students and their families have long recognized that knowing what’s on an exam and how to prepare for it is critical to succeeding on it.”
