Why is the Excel Test Prep SAT/PSAT course combined?

The PSAT is meant to be a practice run for the SAT. The two tests, therefore, cover the exact same topics and even administer the exact same problem types. The main differences are that the SAT is much longer and scored on a scale of 400-1600, whereas the PSAT is scored from a 320-1520. Most collegebound high school students will eventually take both tests.

Your PSAT scores are not sent to any colleges, but if you are able to score within the top 5% you will qualify to enter the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs. 

The Excel Test Prep course covers all the topics covered on the PSAT and the SAT Test. It also includes Three Full-length Official College Board SAT Practice Exams and over 1200 pages of course material. Any student who takes our course will be prepared for both the SAT and the PSAT!
