Test prep on your mind? If you arrived at this site, chances are you are a sophomore, junior or senior in high school (or a parent of one) faced with taking the SAT or ACT test in the near future. You are probably wondering how to best prepare for the SAT or the best books to purchase for the ACT exam. Or maybe you are just confused about which scores to send to colleges? Or how to decide which test to take: the New SAT or ACT exam? Or maybe you just want to plan ahead and need to write down upcoming SAT test dates and ACT test dates? Help has arrived!
Everyday I get calls from students, parents, and college counselors who need expert advice (not just a sales pitch) about the SAT and ACT test. On this website, you will find practical tips for scoring well on the SAT and ACT as well as more general tips about how the tests are used in college admissions (something few websites really delve into deeply).
As a test prep coach for over 20 years, I have more experience preparing students for the SAT and ACT test than most tutors out there. As a certified college counselor, I am not only an expert on test taking strategies but also on the role test scores play in the admissions process (something many, less experienced tutors do not understand). I created this website to help students and parents better prepare for the SAT or ACT exams and understand the role of these exams in the college admission process.
Also, the testing process can be frustrating and confusing (and potentially expensive), and the various opinions given by counselors, teachers, tutors, and friends do not always help (even when intentions are good). Preparing for these exams does not need to be a mysterious and stressful process. Armed with correct information about how to prepare for these exams AND how these exams are used in the college admissions process, students (and parents) can empower themselves.
Rather than look upon the SAT and ACT as something to just "get through and get done", I encourage my students to see this college admissions and test taking process as a marathon, not a sprint. With proper instruction, emotional endurance, and lots of studying, I am consistently amazed at what my students accomplish for themselves.
Over the next months I will be adding lots of content to the website. My goal is to create REALLY good content, so each page takes time to build. So please tell your friends and family! My goal is to make this website one of the best, FREE resources for SAT and ACT!
Several times each week, I post articles and test taking tips about the SAT and ACT tests as well as college admissions. These blog entries are a great way to keep current with what is happening in high school test prep and college admissions. So please bookmark this page (or subscribe to my RSS feed) and let your friends and family know about TestPrepCoach.com!
