The question shouldn’t be: “Why should my child take a prep course?” but rather
“Why would they not take a prep course?”

The Importance of Test Prep:
- Did you know that to score a 600, you only have to correctly answer about 67% of the questions on the SAT? The SAT and ACT are unlike any test students have ever taken. The biggest mistake students make is approaching these standardized exams like high school tests.
Why are higher SAT and/or ACT scores so important?
College admission departments use standardized test scores as a way of differentiating thousands of applications. The amount of applications grow every year, thus creating a more competitive pool of students. A majority of college admission staff surveyed indicated that SAT/ACT scores were “considerably important” in the admission process.
Many colleges receive more than 10 applications for each available opening.
How can higher SAT and/or ACT scores make me (or save me) money?
- Higher test scores will improve a student’s chances of being awarded merit based aid.
- Higher test scores are often a determining factor in the awarding of privately funded scholarships.
- Higher test scores result in a greater number of acceptance letters thus creating more financial aid packages to choose from.
What is a good score?
The average SAT score is approximately 500 per section, but most state universities want students to score at least 600 per section and most private schools want 650 or higher.
