Many students that plan on taking the SAT or ACT enroll in online or traditional classes. These classes that these companies offer strive to better prepare students for the SAT/ACT. In the beginning of the classes, students take a diagnostic SAT/ACT, and over the course of a few weeks, learn new material ranging from math to grammar to analysis of reading passages. Near the end of the class, students take another diagnostic to assess their learning over the course. Many places guarantee a score increase.

“I’ve been taking SAT prep class at Edison Prep for a month. Each week we focus on a new part of the SAT. My scores improved several hundred points because I’ve had one on one help. I would recommend taking a prep class because there is always room for improvement,” said Nicole Webb, a junior.
