Nice Things Actual Teenagers (and the Unsung Heroes Who Pay for Their Cell Phones) Have Said About Us
Visit the websites of other test prep companies—which we are not naming, because some of them have Big Scary lawyers
on retainer—and you will find alleged student testimonials that look like this:
Taylor A., Central High School
My SAT class was totally rad! With my fantastic new score, I’ll be able to get into an Ivy League college, become a cardiologist, and support my parents in their retirement. Thank you, SAT prep company!
Do you think any teenager in America actually speaks like that? (We, at THE PLAYBOOK, aren’t even sure whether teenagers even
speak any more—but that’s another story.)
On our site, all of the feedback you’ll see was submitted by actual students and parents. Our testimonials are recent, authentic,
and completely unedited. So, prepare yourself for oodles of exclamation points and an endearing sprinkling of emojis.
Here is a sample of what actual, living, breathing, texting teenagers have said about us:
Jesse Kinsmann, Newton High School
The instructor was very good. (I don’t remember his name, but I believe it started with a J.) He kept a good pace and made it interactive and fun. I have taken SAT prep classes in the past and there is no doubt that this was the best one. The pace and level of detail he went into was tremendous. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone.
Kashyap Kolukula, Littleton High School
The teacher was very engaging—I learned so much today. Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ruhani Prasad, South County High School
Great tips on avoiding incorrect answers!
Rory O’Dwyer, Owen J. Roberts High School
The instructor was very interesting and easy to listen to. He made the SAT seem less daunting and more doable.
Andrew Poe, West Springfield High School
I appreciated the instructor saying good job to specific people during the Boot Camp. It made the course feel more personal. Also, although SAT prep is obviously boring, and I would rather be watching football, the instructor kept the course interesting, keeping me engaged and helping me learn throughout the entire class.
Micah Desai, Sunny Hills High School
This was so convenient and helpful. Thank you so much for providing really good examples.
Arthur Harner, Sparta High School
Had a great time!
Katie Koller, Southern Regional High School
Thank you! I really think this will help me on the SATs!
Suzannah Eibacher, Governor Livingston High School
The math part was really helpful for me. I understand the test a lot better than before.
Lisa Jair, Walpole High School
Very helpful and engaging. I like how you answered students’ specific questions.
Sruthi Polturi, West Windsor-Plainisboro High School North
It was a great experience. Thank you very much!
Benjamin Palmer, West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North
The instructor was pretty cool.
Kavya Kamath, Sparta High School
This was my first SAT prep course so I don’t have much else to compare it to, but it was a great experience and I feel a lot more prepared now. The instructor was interesting so that was nice—it made the course less boring (not that it was boring, I just don’t want to use the word interesting again because that’s repetitive). Thank you for the tips and tricks. And to whoever is reading these survey responses, I hope you have a nice day. 🙂
Thomas Reynolds, Owen J. Roberts High School
I really enjoyed the course and definitely know it’ll help me get a higher score on the SAT.
Vinayak Nair, West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South
Outstanding course overall. It was very informative, well-explained, and engaging.
Drew Fitzpatrick, Bordentown Regional High School
Thank you very much, I feel a lot more confident and have learned more tricks to help me on the test.
