WARNING! 6 Months To Help Your Teen Study For The ACT or SAT Tests!

Are you ready? Is your teen a Sophomore or Junior? Did you study for the ACT or SAT tests when you were a kid? Do you wish you had studied a WHOLE lot more? I’m guessing yes! I know I wish I did!

owlThere’s still time to help your teen.

My household is testing out an online test prep course. The mobile friendly TestRocker.com platform is the perfect solution for a busy teen studying for either the SAT or the ACT. And the suggestion is that they should take both tests! (Did you know that?)

In the fall of 2014 there are 3 dates set for each of the college test exams— the ACT and SAT. If your child starts in spring they will have about 6 months to prepare, study and hopefully KNOCK out of the park one or preferably both of the college prep tests.

But if your teen is anything like mine she is probably busier than most adults. Between heavy high school courses, AP exams, sports, girlchurch, proms, marching band and maybe a little social time thrown in; when exactly is she supposed to study for the SAT exam?

Local test prep courses are one option but we found that first, they are very expensive (as much as $1,600!). More than we can handle right now. And second, they are simply going to take up too much time. Several Saturdays in a row means absolutely no free time and guarantees a grumpy teen! YIKES.

Is there a test prep solution costing under $1000?

We also wanted a prep course comprehensive for the SAT and the ACT, one that could be utilized in small bursts—15 to 30 minute study blocks. And this course needed to work in our 6 month time-frame. Since we didn’t have time for the in person courses, we needed an online-only course to be mobile friendly and have plenty of visual (video) help.

The TestRocker.com course fits all of the above criteria and costs $699 for a 6-month subscription. The graphics are fabulous and the video answers are very helpful. You can follow along our SAT Prep Journey over on my blog.

My daughter is using the TestRocker website to study about 20 minutes per day for her upcoming test. Do I have to remind her to study? YES. But how easy is it for her to open her smartphone in her bedroom, on a long weekend roadtrip or even when waiting after piano lessons?

  1. Wow, how times have changed! Seems like test taking has become such a sport in itself. We used to just study subjects.

  2. Thanks for sharing this! We could definitely use it around here. I wasn’t much of a studier in high school, but in college, colored pencils and note cards were my best friend!

  3. I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this website.
