Whenever Texas does anything, it does it... big. Barbecue. Football. Country music. Add to the list: standardized testing. The Lone Star State tasks high schoolers with completing end-of-course (EOC) assessments, and for those Texan teens looking to go to college, they add one more to the docket: the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) assessment.

Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com), a digital publisher known for its award-winning test prep and certified online courses, offers online test prep for all of it. They've got distinct prep programs for all of the STAAR® EOC assessments, updated to the latest standards: Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology, U.S. History, and more. Their TSI prep stands alone and has recently received the royal treatment with loads of new drills and two practice exams.

Texas has demonstrated success with Shmoop in the past, with Brownsville Independent School District using Shmoop's AP® exam prep to help it make its way onto the AP Honor Roll. Brownsville ISD Administrator Acacia Ameel attributed the district's success to Shmoop's Online Test Prep. "There's a ton of programs out there," she said, "but Shmoop is so accessible, so easy, and so much fun. Kudos to all of you!"
