The prep for SATs is called high school. No amount of cramming can make up for three or four yearsRead More of goofing off, or substitute for three or four years of hard work and challenging courses.

Dear Jim and Fellow readers: High school success is still the most important factor in competitiveRead More college admissions. But at many colleges, SAT is a close second. And SAT is FIRST in terms of scholarship awards at many universities. Thus, parents who diminish the importance of the SAT need to have a good view of the consequences. Absent a "hook" a great high school record cannot earn a student admission to a "Top 20" college without a top 25 percentile score. And many of the skills demanded for SAT success CAN be build over the course of of 40- 5 month of prep that targets the SAT. Our students routinely improve on the SAT, because their work in high school leaves them short. Perhaps those most helped by good SAT prep are those whose school curricula leave them without skills they could have had were they in a better school. For these students, the SAT opens up an opportunity that would be closed otherwise. Mark Greenstein Founder and Lead Instructor msg@ivybound.net 860-666-5550 x 306
