Preparing for the SAT?

College admissions are more competitive than ever. If you're preparing for your SAT, you already know how important it is to get a high score. Excel Test's SAT prep classes combine everything you need to know to maximize your score. We combine carefully prepared course materials, exciting and dynamic instructors, and incredible free extras into one of the most effective SAT prep programs in the country!

Each format comes with the following:

Excel Test Prep Instructors

We put our teachers through a rigorous selection and training process before they begin teaching our courses. Each of our instructors have at least a bachelor's degree and are passionate about educating students. They are highly experienced educators; very outgoing and skilled at creating a fun, dynamic learning environment.

Many other prep courses assign one teacher to one class, requiring instructors with broad but limited knowledge. We use different, specialized teachers for each subject, so we can ensure that each teacher is an expert in his or her field. Ongoing training and development, expertise, and thorough knowledge of the tests are what make our teachers so effective.

Course Topics and Materials

Each course comes with three full-length SAT practice exams, computerized feedback, and over 1200 pages of original course materials, including The Official SAT Study Guide.

Through extensive research and many revisions, we have developed our own original materials, which is packaged into our Excel Test Prep's SAT/PSAT Course Manual. Every section of this book is based on information gained from actual tests. In addition, we also offer our Excel Test's Complete Solutions to the SAT Study Guide, which contains complete and detailed solutions to all the practice questions in The Official SAT Study Guide.

Thanks to over ten years of research and dedication to educating students, nobody knows the SAT better than Excel Test.
