Method Test Prep.png 

This new and improved online test preparation for the ACT and SAT is available on Naviance for sophomores, juniors and seniors.  It provides an easy and efficient way to do a full test prep curriculum or to target specific areas that students may need to work on.  For example, many students struggle with the pace of the Reading section of the ACT and score lower on this section than others.  If that is the case, a student may want to practice specific reading questions, and read up on this site that will help a student better pace themselves.  Find the link on your student's Naviance page.
