My daughter used the online prep and increased her score from 30 to 32. She enjoyed flexibility, short quizzes, which made it possible for her to fit her preparation with her school assignments, and easy format. She did qualify for the money back guarantee by mastering all the modules and we got it without problems. We followed their instructions from PrepScholar to get ACT scores from ACT by mail (had to pay a small fee but worth the refund). We recommend the program, we feel that it helped us and a higher ACT score makes us more confident to begin the college application process.Jun 8, 2016
Our son took the ACT the fall of his junior year & was disappointed that his scores were lower than he expected. Prior to taking them again in the spring, we discovered Prep Scholar & he was able to get in about 40 hours of lessons before retaking the test. He increased his score in each category (including a 6-point jump in science) & his composite score increased by 3 points as well. Definitely worth it!Apr 20, 2016
Amazing! The program is super flexible so you can budget your time however you want, but they still keep you on track by reminding you about study sessions with texts, and sending your self-made study schedule for the week to your parents. The 1st practice test with prepscholar I got 1 29, then I got a 35 for my real test. Also much less expensive than having tutors once or twice a week, since you can go on the site as much as you wantApr 17, 2016
I took my first SAT at the beginning of junior year in high school after about 5 months of lazy studying with a review book. I was very disappointed with my score (under 2000). After doing some research I found prepscholar, and their +240 points or money back policy was very appealing. It was very good preparation and I saw my scores rise as I took practice tests. Finally, after I finished the program I decided to take the SAT again in about 3 months. I scored 2250, improving almost 300 points. If anyone is serious about improving their scores on standardized tests then prepscholar is the way to go.Apr 2, 2016
Prep scholar is a very helpful program. I improved my previous score by 140 points. It is easy to use, and it allows you to view your progress which proved to be very encouraging! I am now using prep scholar to prepare for the ACT. Great experience, and I definitely recommend it.Mar 18, 2016
