  • Youtube videos to help you understand concepts and strategies.
  • Finally, 10 to 12 hours of practice maximizes your score.

Self paced program includes:

  1. Diagnostic full-length assessment - you will be required to complete this so we can identify the topics you need to practice
  2. 1000+ test questions licensed from Wiley 1,001 SAT Practice Questions For Dummies ©2016 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Used by arrangement with John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
  3. 1 Post test
  4. 1 year access to content

Once you take a full length assessment, our properietary algorithm identifies the top three areas for each section of the test. The algorithm is based on Lean Six Sigma Principles. A typical SAT prep book has over 1000 questions, so knowing which questions will help improve your score will minimize your efforts and maximize the results. Our approach identifies ~300 questions you need to practice to gain mastery of the concepts.

Each content section score ranges from 120 to 720 and total score ranges from 240 to 1440.
If scores are at or above the benchmark scores, you will likely be ready for first-year college courses.
Your test scores are only estimate, not precise measures, of your educational development.
Projected scores are based on the assumption that you get two or three additional questions correct on each section.

A student’s percentile rank represents the percentage of students who score equal to or lower than their score. A rank of 60, for example, means that 60% of students received scores that are the same as or lower than your score.

Top Three Focus Areas

Your top three focus areas are derived from the Pareto charts (see below). The top three areas offer the most opportunity for you to improve your score.
