1107. 20 Years Helping Students Get into the Schools of Their Dreams
Kelly S. Frindell, PhD
“I do ‘practice tests’ with my high school students when they first come to me. Typically, I give them both the SAT and the ACT. These are official tests in that the materials are official, but we don’t report the results. Taking one of each test is useful because, based on which one you get a higher score on, you can pursue just that one. If your scores are kind of equal, then you can choose one. (The schools that accept test scores will accept either the SAT or the ACT.) Once we have those test scores, there are certain lessons that I do with all students which are the basics of test prep strategy that everybody needs to know. Once we get past those basic strategies, then I am free to customize their program however we need to do it. And along the way, I have them take more practice tests that give us a sense of where they are improving, where they are not improving and what we still need to work on.”
