Mountain View, California (PRWEB) May 30, 2017
Anyone who claims that standardized test scores don't matter hasn't applied to college recently. Love it or hate it, these scores matter now more than ever, with scales like the Academic Index determining students' fate more ominously than an angry Greek god.
Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com), a digital publisher known for its award-winning test prep and certified online courses, has added new practice exams to its SAT® and ACT® exam prep to help students crush these standardized tests so they can spend their time worrying about other things—like crafting a tear-jerking-but-not-clichéd personal statement. These new exams add even more oomph to Shmoop's existing offerings, which already include comprehensive topic review; hundreds of drills and multiple practice tests with answer explanations; and loads of supplemental goodies like diagnostic exams, videos, projected scores, and detailed progress monitoring.
Shmoop's test prep programs have demonstrated measurable success across the country. Seneca Senior High School in South Carolina used Shmoop's ACT exam prep, and its overall average composite ACT score went up 1.4% in just one year, from 18.8 to 19.3. Felicia LeRoy, Assistant Principal of Seneca Senior High, called Shmoop a "quality test prep program," adding that "students rave" about the program.
