My newly released book, 6 Secrets to Mastering Successful SAT or ACT Test-taking: Develop the Skill Set and Mindset to Get the Score You Want and BEYOND!, is now an Amazon bestseller!
While there has been a lot of controversial talk in recent times about the value of standardized testing—not to mention the fact that no one particularly likes taking the ACT or SAT!—the truth is that the SAT and ACT are probably here to stay for quite a while. When contemplating the value of standardized tests, keep in mind that not all high school teachers follow the same standards for giving out grades, and as such colleges need some way of uniformly screening candidates’ skills and knowledge. When I was young, the percentage of students graduating from high school with straight A’s was less than 5%; nowadays it is about 40%! So it’s no wonder that colleges need a more stringent way to evaluate a student’s level of learning.
Standardized college entrance exams test reading efficiency, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. Teens who read the book will learn how to improve language and reading skills as well as how to create the mindset and confidence that success in testing, college, and life requires. As the title of the book suggests, the techniques and strategies provided in 6 Secrets to Mastering Successful SAT or ACT Test-taking will not only serve students during SAT and ACT testing will also equip them with other essential skills that will serve as a strong foundation in future learning and life in general.
Students who have taken or are currently taking our program should be well aware of the life skills and testing techniques outlined in the book. That said, I am asking my current students to read the book as well as it offers a concise consolidation of what they have learned.
So, are you and your teen ready to develop the skills it takes to get outstanding SAT or ACT scores and get into the college of your choosing? Check out 6 Secrets to Mastering Successful SAT or ACT Test-taking: Develop the Skill Set and Mindset to Get the Score You Want and BEYOND!
