I walked into College Planning Partnerships SAT Prep with a 1930 on my SATs. I needed help on the critical reading section and the writing section. In my mind, 2000 was the magic number, and that is exactly what I told Sam. In around six classes I gained the knowledge that got me a 2100. I raised my SAT score 170 points in two sections of the test: 70 points in the critical reading and 100 points in the writing. I also walked away with an essay for the common application that Sam, my father, and, more importantly, my college counselor was happy with. This course worked for me because Sam taught me not only the raw material on the test, but also the strategies I must know in order to earn a higher score. In class we worked on the strategies: how to approach each question and what the graders are actually looking for in an essay. For homework I practiced these strategies and learned new vocabulary words. This may sound similar to a Princeton Review course, but Sam charges less money. How much less? Sam charges $80 per hour, while a PR course charges $200 per hour; Sam charges $120 per hour less than PR does. I got my results at a tremendous speed. In about the equivalent time of two days of school, I gained the knowledge that awarded me 170 more points on my SAT and had a final draft of a college essay in my hand. Sam knows the tricks that College Board puts in the test, and he taught me how to avoid them and how to steer myself in the right direction. To top it off, my parents saved over $1500 by sending me to College Planning Partnerships SAT Prep as opposed to a Princeton Review course. I recommend this course to any student who wishes to improve his or her SAT score quickly and painlessly. Sam is a very easy man to work and get along with, but he still posses an unmatched knowledge of the test. A higher SAT score opens doors for better colleges, and College Planning Partnerships SAT Prep gives students the keys to these doors. Finally, to parents: If you enjoy seeing your child succeed and saving a large chunk of money at the same time, sending your child to this course is the best choice you can make.

Sincerely,
