Princeton Review holds free National Testing Day
Submitted By Antonia Caamano
The Princeton is Review is offering free SAT and ACT full-length practice exams for Bay Area high school students on Saturday, March 20.
This is being done to help high school students gain a significant advantage in using scores from their college admissions exams to more effectively compete for financial aid.
Closest testing locations in our area are set for Pleasanton and San Francisco.
Administered under actual testing conditions, participants can use the free practice test to assess their strengths and weaknesses across all subject areas on either the SAT or ACT. Test-takers will also be invited to attend a free Scores Back Session where they will receive a personalized, detailed score report that analyzes their performance section by section. A Princeton Review expert will review and explain the report and demonstrate unique approaches, techniques and strategies designed to improve scores.
Competition for financial aid, grants and scholarships is increasing dramatically due to the economic crisis and recession. Despite SAT scores becoming more important in competing for this aid, national scores are dropping. A practice test provides a measure of how you'll do on the exam, and what you need to do to improve your score. The difference between having an average score and a good score on an exam like the SAT or ACT is often determined by your understanding of what the test will be like, how long it takes and the limits of the content.
