ePrep courses employ the proven, results-driven methodology of (1) test, (2) grade, (3) review, and (4) repeat. Contrary to many marketing campaigns, there are no short-cuts, quick fixes, or magic-wand solutions to higher SAT or ACT scores… and preparing for the SAT or ACT will not likely be "fun." Anyone willing to "try hard" and learn from his or her mistakes, however, can achieve significant and measurable success on a high-stakes test like the SAT or ACT. Again, the methodology is simple: practice, grade, review, repeat.
For maximum flexibility, you can complete ePrep tests and quizzes either online or offline. ePrep’s online test functionality was designed to be intuitive and user friendly, perfect for students who don’t have easy access to printers or who simply prefer to work online via a tablet or computer. ePrep’s offline functionality is highly recommended because it allows students to simulate the test-day, paper/pencil environment. Regardless of how you complete an ePrep test or quiz, it will be graded instantly and you can review your score immediately.
Every ePrep test or quiz question comes with a video answer explanation that was recorded by a master teacher with decades of experience in high-school teaching and test prep. That’s right, ePrep has literally thousands of exam-room videos embedded in courses designed to help you maximize your test-prep effort and test-day scores. ePrep goes one step further, however. Every ePrep course comes with a Study Hall that recommends subject-matter and test-strategy videos based on the most up-to-date data collected from your test performance.
After you’ve watched ePrep’s exam-room and study-hall videos, apply what you’ve learned to a new test or quiz. Repeat the practice-grade-review cycle as many times as possible before test day to maximize your scores. If you have time over the weekend, take practice test and immediately complete the video review. If it’s during the week, and you only have a few minutes to dedicate to test prep, take a quiz to hone your skills or simply stay sharp.
ePrep was launched in 2007, a time when people were skeptical about online, video-based learning. We stayed the course, however, and watched ePrep’s user base grow organically from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands per year. The reason for this growth is that ePrep actually works. In other words, students who use ePrep increase their test scores and become better prepared for the academic challenges of college.
Using ePrep is pretty simple. Students log in and pick a practice test or short quiz. Students complete tests and quizzes either online in their accounts or offline by downloading and printing practice materials. Students enter answers online for instant grading. After reviewing their scores, students watch videos associated with the questions they skipped, answered incorrectly, or answered correctly, but only after a guess or a long struggle.
ePrep videos cover academic content, useful problem-solving methodologies, and time-saving test-taking strategies. More importantly, ePrep videos show students how to solve problems in real time and in the same paper pencil environment they will experience on test day. The brilliance of ePrep videos does not come in the form of fancy multi-colored graphics or technology, but in the simple form of good teaching.
