Early Test Prep – What Can I Do?

List of 1 items.

  • Early Test Prep – What Can I Do?

    Our main message: Starting early can be good. Overdoing it is bad. Occasionally we get inquiries about standardized test preparation from freshmen, sophomores, first- semester juniors and their parents. In particular, some students feel that the summer before junior year is a good time to get started on test prep, knowing that the junior year is going to be so busy.

    On the one hand, we love your desire to plan ahead and be prepared! We are excited that you are ambitious. These traits will definitely pay off as you enter the college research and application process.
