Summer: Taking a Proctored, Practice Test over the Summer

Ah, summer. Ice cream. Fireflies. Picnics. Testing.

Testing?

Before you shake your head and run back into the surf, take a minute to consider the advantages of sitting for an A+ proctored SAT or ACT over the summer.

      • Copy of Parents FAQ 1

        SAT and ACT practice testing sessions allow you to experience a college entrance exam as you will on the actual test day. You arrive at our office at your appointed time. A proctor starts and stops each test section. Breaks are scheduled as they would be in a real testing situation. Taking one or more proctored tests familiarizes you with SAT/ACT testing procedures in a way that is not possible on your own at home.

        You can:

      • Hone Test-Taking Strategies. One of our favorite sayings at A+ is: The only thing a standardized test measures is how well you take a standardized test. If two students have an equal amount of subject knowledge, good test strategies and familiarity with the test can be the deciding factors in who earns the better score. The best way to sharpen those strategies is to use them in a practice setting as close to the real thing as possible.

      • Inform Decisions. Take one SAT and one ACT practice test (not on the same day, of course). Then meet with one of our knowledgeable directors to review your results. We’ll help you understand your performance on each test and make an informed decision about which test is a better fit. We’ll also help you plan a timeline for test prep and decide which test date(s) you should plan to prepare for.

      • Save Money! A+ Proctored Practice tests are free! You can find out which test is right for you without investing in expensive study materials. There is no obligation to sign up for an A+ test prep program, although we are happy to answer questions from students who are interested!
