ESC TEST PREP
" I wanted to follow up with you on the results of my October SAT. For math, which was the main reason I took a course, I improved my score by 100 points.... When the Critical Reading and Math scores were added I got above a 1400 (Writing is not included).... So basically, I wanted to thank both of you for the great program you run. Without it, I definitely wouldn't have gotten the score I needed in order to be able to apply for the Honors program, and I wouldn't have gotten the full scholarship. With it, I am able to save about $32,000 a year."

Mrs. S., Teaneck NJ

He took the SAT test this past October, and scored a 2070!!!!! He increased his score by 290 points!!! We are both so happy that your course was available to him. I would like to sign up my daughter for your May exam class."

Juniors will improve their combined SAT scores by at least 100 points or ACT by at least 3 points as compared to the combined scores of a previous exam, or they may take our 4-session refresher course in the spring of 2020 without charge. Eligibility is dependent on having attended all classes and completed all assigned homework. STUDENTS MUST HAVE A PRIOR OFFICIAL SCORE REPORT (PSAT, SAT or ACT) TO COMPARE TO AN OFFICIAL COMPARABLE EXAM SCORE REPORT FOLLOWING PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM TO MEASURE RESULTS.
The goal of test preparation is to gain advantage as a test taker. In addition to a thorough subject matter review, test preparation exposes the pattern and trappings of the questions and answer choices, so as not to be taken by surprise. Students who prepare for an exam learn time-saving techniques, discover how to spot incorrect answers with ease, build stamina, and are generally more relaxed, poised, and in command of the material on test day.
Educational Services Center is now in its 41st year of effectively training students in how to answer SAT test questions correctly.
Many of ESC's teachers have been working with us to raise students' scores for 20+ years. New instructors are chosen based on expert teaching skill and knowledge of SAT and ACT subject matter. Our instructors teach math or English on the high school or college level, or have scored in the top 1% of the exam section they teach. They are dynamic, mature professionals who understand not only how to effectively communicate the subject matter & strategies, but also the motivation and inspiration that is required for students to succeed.
ABOUT THE PSAT
The Preliminary SAT, also known as the PSAT/NMSQT® (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), is a preparatory version of the SAT exam. It is 15 min. shorter, but the content is exactly the same. Therefore, preparation for one, is preparation for the other.
Functionally, they're different because the SAT can be used for college admissions, while the PSAT cannot, and the PSAT can be used to put you in the running for a National Merit scholarship, whereas the SAT cannot. Our courses will cover all subject matter on the PSAT/SAT in the first four sessions, so juniors preparing for the PSAT test date will have reviewed every area of the exam by the PSAT test date. The remaining sessions will reinforce the subject matter and strategies as juniors head into the SAT.
