Why is there a day off?
We schedule a day off into every classroom course in case there is some sort of emergency and we need to reschedule any courses. We want to make sure you get your full money's worth, even if something goes wrong.  There are still eight lectures per course.

Exam Club and Other Extras
Each Excel Test SAT course comes with the same extras and guarantees. Additional practice at Exam Club is not mandatory, but we highly recommend you take advantage of this unique program! Many of our perfect scorers cite Exam Club as an essential part of their test preparation.

Every Excel SAT course also offers a Score Increase Guarantee of 200 points. The SIT option is the exception, boasting a 300 point Score Increase Guarantee.

Computerized Feedback
Excel Test Prep uses only official SAT exams so that students can get a more accurate assessment of their score and what they need to work on. After the students take each exam, Excel Test Prep will run the answer sheets through a computer system that produces an online analysis detailing the students strengths and weaknesses which will pinpoint exactly where the student may need to pay special attention.
 

* Please note that the Excel Test Prep SAT Course and the Excel Test Prep PSAT Course are the same preparation class. All of the test strategies, course materials, and practice activities that are a part of this course will prepare students for the PSAT as well as the SAT.

“I really enjoyed this company for sat prep and realized how much I appreciate this program especially when talking with friends about their classes with another company because they're not as awesome as mine. Excel test has really engaging teachers and I appreciate the fact that they give us food and actually care that we succeed. Would definitely do this course again and encourage others to take it. Definitely improved my score.”

“All the teachers knew what they were talking about and provided valuable tips for doing better on the SAT. They incentivized learning through games or candy which made us want to participate and in general were engaging people. I personally feel more ready for the SAT and that my goal score is in reach after taking this 4-week course. The only thing that made me dock a star was the generalized advice provided, after excelling at a certain level during in class there wasn't much help beyond that.”

“I found excel to be really helpful in giving me the structure I needed to understand the SAT better. The best way to improve your score is to learn how the test works and to take lots of exams. Experienced, patient teachers and plenty of in-depth resources give you a strong foundation that you can build on at your own pace. Excel sets you up for success, so your main job is to take advantage of everything available to you. The classroom environment is engaged and friendly, which makes it easy to stay motivated and look forward to attending classes. Exam club was also extremely helpful for practice long after I had completed the course. I would highly recommend excel test prep--my score increased by around 400 points after taking the course.”
