ePrep Summer Camps in Princeton

eprep test prep videoePrep summer camps are a bit different than traditional academic camps. How?

1. The Instructors: All ePrep camps will be taught by Karl Schellscheidt and Kathy Doyle. Both Karl and Kathy are Princeton University graduates (1990-Karl, 1993-Kathy) and career educators. When you sign up for most other summer camps, you have no idea who will be teaching the course. You might get lucky; you might not. If you live in the greater Princeton community, there’s no point in taking the chance.

2. The Online Component: When most other academic camps end, they end. Students are then left with months of nothing to do before the fall testing season. ePrep summer camps offer one week of intense in-person training. During the week-long camp, students are introduced to one of ePrep’s premium, video-based, on line study programs. Thus, ePrep campers continue guided preparation at their convenience for the balance of the summer and into the fall. In other words, ePrep continues to guide students right into September and October. No other summer program offers this advantage.

Last-Minute Help for the ACT

Karl Schellscheidt -

eprep test prep videoIt’s a good idea to do some prep before the ACT, even if it’s last-minute.

At $69, ePrep’s Express ACT course may be just what you need.

Science: For students familiar with the SAT, the ACT’s Science section may come as a big surprise on test day. While the Science section is not terribly difficult, most students mismanage time the first time they try one. (To help with time management, skim the passages (one at a time) and quickly get to the related questions. The questions will only require that you refer back to, and fully understand, specific sections of the text. Thus, reading the entire passage in detail is not the best use of the time allotted.)

Math: The ACT math section is much more straightforward than SAT math. Unlike the SAT, however, the ACT covers more advanced topics like trigonometry. (Practicing before test day is a great way to refresh your memory on concepts you may have forgotten over the years and to learn essential topics that you may not have covered yet in school.)

Reading: The ACT Reading section does not include sentence completion questions like the SAT. The ACT Reading section includes only a series of passages with linked questions. Unlike the SAT passage based questions, however, some ACT questions go beyond reading comprehension. They require the test-taker to make decisions regarding the structure or function of specified portions of the text provided. (It’s a really good idea to expose your mind to these types of questions before test day.)

English: In concept, the ACT English section is much like the SAT Writing section. (Because the format is different, however, it would behoove you to take a practice test before you sit for a real ACT.)

Good luck on Saturday to all taking the ACT!
