Our Thoughts:
While we are just beginning our high school years with our teenager I am anticipating college testing with some trepidation. My own experiences of doing college testing was pretty much signing up for what everyone else was taking and actually falling asleep during part of the testing due to staying out late the night before. Not exactly a model I want my son to follow, but how to study for a standardized test? I was always led to believe you couldn’t study for these kinds of tests, however in more recent years that has changed.
College Prep Genius is one of those programs helping college hopefuls to study for the tests that will determine part of their college careers. My son is smart but since we don’t test as homeschoolers he felt under prepared for his entrance exams. Going through this program has given him a great experience in testing procedures and strategy. He feels better informed and knows what to expect during testing. He has even decided to take the NMQT to try and gain scholarships.
I was a bit disappointed that this was not an “all inclusive” package with real SAT tests to get a baseline. Having to download the homework package was also time consuming. I have not priced other programs so for the price I can not say whether this would make me decide not to buy it. I happened to have an SAT test prep book that does included actual tests so this was not a big issue for me. I think this would benefit anyone who is planning on sitting for the SATs, even without the actual tests.
