This summer, learn THE PLAYBOOK for cracking every question guaranteed to be on the SAT and ACT.

The SAT and ACT, bitter archenemies since the dawn of No. 2 pencils, have never been more alike than they are today. Our Combo Course exploits that similarity, teaching students strategies for all aspects of both exams, from methods for avoiding sneaky trap answers to techniques for staying focused under pressure—an indispensable skill for any teenager tackling the three-hour SAT or ACT.

Students benefit from 8 two-hour content and strategy sessions (16 hours of live expert instruction); our exclusive prep guide, featuring step-by-step strategies for every question guaranteed to be on the SAT and ACT; and video recordings of the entire course, so participants can review key concepts whenever and as often as they would like.

Kudos to whoever the teacher was. He said he was informative and funny and that he made hard concepts easy to understand. Thank you!”
