Why Prep for the ACT® or SAT®?
Your score on the ACT or SAT can mean admission to one of your top-choice colleges and maybe even a better job offer after graduation.
So how can you do your best on Test Day? After almost 80 years of helping students prepare for entrance exams, we’ve learned that test prep courses are the single most efficient and cost-effective way to boost your confidence and improve your score on the ACT or SAT.
A test prep course will help you increase your knowledge across all test areas, develop test-taking strategies, and build your confidence.
SAT and ACT scores can affect whether you get a merit-based scholarship at the school of your choice. Your high school grades and your test scores are the main factors that go into merit-based financial aid decisions. Plus, a high score on the PSAT could mean a shot at a National Merit Scholarship.
A better score can lead to a better college, a better college to a better job, and a better job to better overall life satisfaction. Some employers are even asking to see SAT or ACT scores before making an offer.
