College Prep Genius - Product Overview

Gone is the newborn we kept wrapped so tightly. Gone is the toddler we chased around the house trying to keep alive while he tested all the boundaries. Gone is even the child we taught to read and to write and to count. Present is a young adult who is preparing to embark on the rest of his life. And we, as his parents, are responsible to make sure he is well equipped to do so.

One way we can equip our children is to give them the tools to have a strong start. Being prepared for college is one of those tools. And that means being prepared for the Standardized Assessment Test (SAT) as well as other tests that may be required. As the mother of a high school freshman, I have not yet journeyed into the world of scholarships and college preparation. But I am finding out that those who start early have the best results. So I am indeed blessed to have received the "Master the SAT Class" DVD Set from College Prep Genius to help me get started.

Included in this DVD set are the SAT Class lecture series and the College Prep Genius Textbook and Workbook. The lecture series runs about 5-1/2 hours and includes 4 discs: Introduction to the SAT, Critical Reading, Math, and Writing. The textbook contains over 350 tips, shortcuts, and test taking strategies while the workbook contains sample PSAT and SAT problems so the student can put into practice the strategies and tips taught in the College Prep Genius curriculum.

The DVD set is currently on sale for $79.00 and upon a quick preview of the material it appears to be worth the investment. You can read the review of our experience here.

If you are like me and do not know much about the PSAT/SAT, you may want to visit the College Board website.

I'm using this product with my kids. People should know there is a LOT of redundancy in the textbook. An editor should have had a look at it before it was published. Otherwise, I like it.
