Hamden, CT (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
The May SAT results were released last week and the results have been good for the 2011-2012 class of SATLadder users. Several past users who, at some point, have been ranked in the top 5 of the SATLadder have met or exceeded their SAT goal scores.
SATLadder successfully raises students’ SAT scores because students look forward to doing more practice questions. The app engages and interests its users - a crucial component of successful test preparation.
One-time #3 ranked SATLadder user p12ngirard says about SATLadder : “To begin with, the app gives three perfect modes of play. AI, relaxed, and competitive. No matter what your needs, one of these modes will fill them. Furthermore, even if no one is available to play a match, Solo Mode is a great anytime, anywhere tool. Finally, the necessity of getting the question right FIRST, not just getting it right, keeps in one’s mind the ever-important time factor on these standardized tests.”
One-time #1 ranked SATLadder user jmarks13 says “What a great way to prepare for the SAT. This app really makes studying fun, and draws out the competitive nature of its users in a way that benefits everyone!”
Each year, approximately 2 million high school students across the United States sit for the SAT. It has been estimated that more than one-third of high school students own and use iPhones. In addition, many of the students who do not own iPhones are iPod touch users. It can comfortably be estimated that over one million high school students who will be taking the SAT in 2012-2013 have access to iOS apps from the Apple App Store.
High school students across the country are constantly on the move – to school, to games, to extracurricular activities – and their mobile devices are on the move with them. This creates a unique opportunity for them to get necessary and effective SAT test preparation done during time that otherwise might have been wasted time.
SATLadder, a test preparation app for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, was created for this very reason. It is an on-the-go test preparation tool that students can use when they have a few minutes to do a handful of questions. While riding the bus to an away game, a student could answer and review 15 – 20 SAT questions – a fantastic use of that time.
Mark Anestis, director and founder of The Learning Edge and creator of SATLadder, touts the versatility of the app: “This app provides students who like the thrill of competition a more dynamic mode of preparation that makes studying fun. Students can use it as a quick study tool when they have a few minutes to do a handful of questions or they can systematically play the game and review the correct answers via the detailed answer explanations that come with the LadderEdge package on the website. The app includes over 2,000 questions and definitions to over 1,000 high-frequency SAT words. As the actual results of our SATLadder users show, those who have fought their way to the top of the Ladder have seen their SAT scores climb right along with them.”
SATLadder is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and can be downloaded from the App Store.
