790 in Reading and Writing on the May SAT! Thank you!

Aaradhya P.
West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South
Princeton Junction, NJ

“Thank you for helping me earn a 1550 on the SAT! I was a bit nervous the day of, but as I was going through the test, I felt very prepared. The course taught me how to read and analyze passages as well as the questions, which really helped me narrow down the choices and choose the correct answer each time.”

Justine Lao
The Mary Louis Academy
Jamaica Estates, NY

“I was able to raise my SAT score from a 1370 to a 1540. That’s a 170-point increase, something that may seem daunting but becomes easier with great guidance.”

Nicholas C.
Somers High School
Somers, NY

“Up from 620 to 760—thank you, this course was amazing!”

Jennie Park
Whitney Young Magnet High School
Chicago, IL

“Before, I could never figure out how to tell right answers from the wrong ones. I could usually get Reading question down to two choices, but then I would sit there, unsure which one to pick. I used to lose so much time in SAT Reading, going back-and-forth between answer choices. Now I know how to spot when an answer seems to be right but is really a ‘trap.’ Thank you. I feel much more confident for October.”

“800!!!!!!!!”

Michael Leung
Lowell High School
San Francisco, CA

“Thank you so much. I had no idea what to do for my Common App or supplements and kept writing drafts that I wasn’t happy with. You helped me understand what admissions officers look for when they read students’ personal statements and how I had a unique story to tell. I’m positive my essays helped me get into Brown, and I feel much more confident in my writing ability now than I did before. Thank you!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

For the vast majority of students – nearly all – the PSAT is simply a practice exam, a barometer of how they are likely to eventually perform on the SAT. However, for a select few students – the top one-half of one percent in each state – the PSAT is a path to prestige and college scholarships. Top-scoring students on the PSAT enter the National Merit Scholarship Competition, which honors the most elite test-takers and renders them eligible for major scholarships. Our Future National Merit Scholars PSAT Boot Camp is specifically designed for students who possess both the intelligence and drive to compete at the highest levels.

Many high-achieving students will take both. The Digital SAT Playbook is specifically for the SAT, while our Future National Merit Scholars PSAT Boot Camp is exclusively for the PSAT and for students who are true contenders for the highest honor in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Although there is a great degree of overlap in content and strategies between our digital SAT course and PSAT Boot Camp, the latter is more fast-paced and focuses on the types of questions that ambitious AP students find most challenging. The PSAT Boot Camp also benefits students with four PSAT exams to supplement the 10 SAT exams in our Digital SAT Playbook course.

Yes, absolutely. We cover every inch of the new digital PSAT – every verbal and math question guaranteed to be on the test. We also illustrate how to make the best use of the new digital format, which is markedly different from the pencil-and-paper test.

The tuition is $699 per student.

Yes, all students can repeat our Future National Merit Scholars PSAT Boot Camp at any point in the future, so students who are in 9 th or 10 th grade can benefit from a head start without incurring the cost of an elite-level PSAT prep program twice.
