The Valedictorian at Princeton University

The valedictorian at Princeton University almost every year is a student who majored in math, engineering or one of the sciences, not a student who majored in the liberal arts. Why? The answer makes sense if you think about it.

The subject matter of math, engineering and the sciences tends to be more objective, or black and white, than that of the liberal arts. In a math class, for example, every homework, quiz, test and final exam problem will have a single correct answer. All a student needs to do is calculate and record the correct answer (more…)

Score Choice. Test Optional. SAT or ACT? Help!

Eric Barnes

A great article in the New York Times by a mother of a high school junior talks about the dizzying array of options when approaching test prep.  Back in the day, you simply took the SAT test and your score was reported to your prospective colleges.  You most like did very little prep or may have simply bought a test prep book for practice.  Things aren’t so simply anymore.

“As it stands, Nicole remains unsure about which college admissions test she will take (perhaps both), how many times she’ll sit for it, whether or not she will submit her scores to colleges, and if she’ll need the results to count at all.”

ePrep on Display at NACAC

ePrep at NACAC 2009 Convention

We had the pleasure of debuting ePrep at the annual NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling) conference last week in Baltimore, MD. Some 6,000 high school and guidance counselors attended to discover the latest resources and services for college admissions. ePrep was arguably a stand-out among test prep providers, as many high school counselors are believers in the power of expert video over traditional and outmoded test prep practices. ePrep is thrilled to now work with so many high schools and independent college planners helping students maximize their SAT, ACT and PSAT test scores!

SAT as Predictor of College Success

Karl Schellscheidt

college admissions expert advice from eprep.comIn a recent article on newsweek.com, Po Bronson argues that the SAT is a valid predictor of college success.

“It turns out that an SAT score is a far better predictor than everyone has said. When properly accounting for the self-selection bias, SAT scores correlate with college GPA around 67%. In the social sciences, that’s considered a great predictor.”

Ahead of the Curve

ePrep  News
Eric Barnes

An article in last weekend’s New York Times profiled the rapidly growing trend of high school students using digital resources over textbooks and had this to say:

“Kids are wired differently these days,” said Sheryl R. Abshire, chief technology officer for the Calcasieu Parish school system in Lake Charles, La. “They’re digitally nimble. They multitask, transpose and extrapolate. And they think of knowledge as infinite.

“They don’t engage with textbooks that are finite, linear and rote,” Dr. Abshire continued. “Teachers need digital resources to find those documents, those blogs, those wikis that get them beyond the plain vanilla curriculum in the textbooks.”

ePrep has been way ahead of the curve and continues to lead the test prep market online. By bringing the power of a private tutor directly to each student through online video and ePrep’s adaptive analytics, students and parents can receive unprecedented expertise at an affordable cost.

Tips for Acing CR and Writing

Guest Columnist

college admissions expert advice from eprep.com4 Tips to Ace Your SAT Verbal and Writing

Every kid has nightmares about facing the SAT exams, one of the hurdles to their progress to a good college. Enough cannot be said about the importance of these tests, so it is imperative that preparation is thorough, because only with intensive study and planned strategy can you ace the SATs. Most students find it hard to score high marks on the verbal and writing portions; although mathematics is difficult, it can be aced if you study diligently. With the essay, sentence completion and other parts of the verbal and writing tests, you never know how you’re going to be judged, so the best you can do is prepare as well as you can by:

Starting young: The SATs may come into your life only when you graduate from high school, but that’s no reason to wait till your senior year to prepare for them. In fact, the groundwork for the SATs has to begin when you’re old enough to understand how important these exams are in your life. If you practice improving your vocabulary and reading as a daily habit right from the time you can read, you’re going to have an edge over the competition when you take the SATs.

Reading the right kind of books: It’s not enough that you read; what’s more important is that you read the right kind of books. There are some authors who improve your English and vocabulary and entertain as well, so make sure you include their books as part of your education. While your interest may lie with popular best sellers, you must make an effort to get through and enjoy books that are known to have words that are commonly found in SAT vocabulary questions, like Brian Aldiss, Kim Stanley Robinson, Vladimir Nabokov and K.W. Jeter.

Improving your handwriting: You’re going to have to write the essay using pen and paper, without the help of a word processor. So work on writing a few pages everyday so that your handwriting is neat and presentable even when you’re writing at top speed. You also need to be able to write a complete essay without your fingers cramping or your writing going awry.

Improving your presentation: You need to work on your presentation skills and learn how to use intelligent quotations in your essay, understand how to split it into paragraphs, and most important of all, know how to organize your thoughts and put them down in a cohesive format, one that flows from beginning to end and makes sense.

Remember, acing the SATs is a task that’s all in the mind. If you train yourself to think positively, you’re definitely going to be able to do well.

SAT and American “Idle”

Catherine

“Turn off the television, read a book, take an online course or pick out a video lecture from the public library. If your children see you learning a little bit every day they will grow to respect their education. That is SAT preparation.”
