“I took the Prepskills SAT preparation course in an attempt to help get myself ready for a May 2009 SAT. I entered the class knowing the general layout and basics of the test, but lacked actual practice. The course was very thorough, as we dissected the SAT bit by bit. I learned countless techniques and tricks which I used to my advantage on the real SAT, and managed to score a full 200 points higher than my initial score. The teacher was a great pleasure to be around, and was able to assist me with any questions or concerns I had. The materials and booklet provided by the course is a goldmine in SAT knowledge and secrets.
I have received many invitations to Universities wanting to accept me because of my high score, and without Prepskills it would not have been possible.”
