When I hear students say “I’m not a good test-taker”, I cringe. Unrelated to the SATs-ACTs, high stakes tests – such as finals – become a bigger part of one’s academic career as students move into the latter stages of high school. In college, mid-terms and finals – high stakes tests – become an even more significant part of success.
I immediately tell the student-child who claims to be a bad test taker: “you are untrained test-taker”. After I train you, you will be a better test taker. Having trained at this point several thousand Connecticut students in the SAT-ACT, I can say with certainty that this is true for most every student who goes through one of our test prep programs.
Given that SAT season is here, now is the best time to get trained in test-taking.
