It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.

Read. Think. Write. A world of difference with truly professional test prep.

Posted on Oct 19, 2017 5:34:48 PM

In the very midst of focused preparation for college entrance testing (ACT and SAT), it’s rather easy for student (and anxious parent) to lose sight of a bigger picture.
 
We have in mind the benefits that accrue from guided, methodical practice for the big tests. What are these benefits? They’re wrapped up in our three-word title. First, effective test prep produces an effective, active reader. That’s a student who’s engaged in such a way as to maximize retention.

What Matters to Admission Officers?

Posted on Sep 28, 2017 5:05:33 PM

Your academic record, especially the rigor of the courses you took, and your SAT/ACT scores are still the door-openers for college admissions, and if you’re looking for acceptance at a college that admits most applicants, those measures may be enough. But if you want to be considered for admission to more selective schools, those measures aren’t nearly enough, and here’s why: You have real competition – lots of other students who want to attend those same selective schools – and their academic record and SAT/ACT scores are likely to be comparable to yours, if not better. Otherwise, those students wouldn’t be your competition, would they?
