There are many reasons why SAT online prep has increased in popularity over the last five years. A few of the reasons include the effectiveness of the SAT online prep, cost, and timeliness. Let’s take a look at these three reasons.


Good SAT online prep can be just as if not more effective than traditional classroom based SAT prep.  The reality is that the SAT is a very predictable test.  For example, the right triangle is one math concept that the SAT loves to use.  When students see a right triangle on the SAT they should immediately think of the Pythagorean Theory. 


SAT Online PrepIt’s the predictability of the SAT the makes preparing for it so effective.  SAT online prep courses, like Method Test Prep’s SAT Method, allow students to learn all of the strategies needed for test day.  Using SAT online prep students can identify the areas where they need to most help and then concentrate on just those areas.  Students who know how to identify concepts and then use the proper strategy to solve the question do markedly better on the SAT than students who go into the SAT with no preparation.



Prior to SAT prep online the only real options were to attend an expensive prep class or to work with an expensive tutor.  That’s not the case anymore, now a days you can find SAT prep online anywhere from free to over $1500 per student.  


We always tell families to use caution whenever a company is giving something away for free because as we all know nothing in life is free.  Most companies who give test prep away for free are selling the students information to the highest bidder.  Ever wonder where all that junk email was coming from?  As for the overly expensive SAT online prep courses, let’s just say they haven’t realized that the internet is supposed to make things more accessible and less expensive, not the other way around.


With Method Test Prep you get the best of both worlds.  We start every subscription off with a two week free trial.  Then, once you’ve seen how effective our courses are, it’s only $39.99 a month.  You can cancel at any time.  Most families choose to use our online courses for 3 months, that’s only $120.  When it comes time for you to prepare for the SAT please consider exploring SAT preparation online.




One of the most important things to consider when evaluating SAT online prep is how much time you are willing to commit to it and how much time is the preparation company asking for.  In our experience, students are likely to complete more SAT online prep when they only have to prep for 15-20 minutes at a time.  That’s why we have created the Method Test Prep “Raise your Score” checklist.  Each item on our check list takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.  The other piece of good news is that there are only 4 items per week on the checklist.  So for those of you who are paying attention, we’re asking students to complete about 1 to 1½ hours of test prep a week.
