Prep with us

Don't just take the SAT. See where it takes you!

30% of test-takers found the new SAT to be more difficult than expected*. As the world leader in SAT prep, Kaplan can help you achieve the score you need. Here's how:

  • Personalized study: All students differ in the pace at which they learn, in their readiness to learn and in which concepts and skills they still need to learn. Our courses are tailored so students focus on the areas where they need the most help.

  • Identify and target your areas of improvement: Our adaptive learning technology, Smart Reports®, provide you with customized study recommendations based on individual needs.

  • Extensive content and practice: Guided practice with hints and support, independent quizzes, proctured tests and proven test-taking strategies.

  • Live and online instruction: Our courses are taught by Kaplan trained teachers who scored in the 90th percentile or higher on the SAT.

  • Higher Score Guarantee*: You will score higher on the SAT or your money back. It's that simple.

I took Kaplan's SAT prep course in the summer and I received a final SAT score of 2230. I thought the classroom course was really brilliant and there is no way I'd have gotten anything close to that score without Kaplan's help. Definitely huge positive feedback from me!

SAT or ACT?

Which test is right for you?

With the SAT test format having recently changed, many students are questioning whether they should take the SAT or ACT. While both share similar exam structure, each test plays to different students' strengths and weaknesses. Do you excel in reading and vocabulary? Then the SAT is a good option. Or maybe you prefer science-based questions, in which case the ACT is more your tune.

Something else to bear in mind is the complexity of each exam. For example, the SAT is notorious for asking intentionally simple but confusing questions, whereas the ACT asks difficult but straightforward questions. It's important to choose the exam that best suits your individual set of skills!

Most universities in the U.S. do not have a preference over the ACT or SAT. However, the only way to know for sure which exam your university of choice accepts is to get in touch with the school's admissions office.

Find out more about both exam formats by visiting our SAT vs. ACT page.

SAT Classroom Student, Summer Programme, July 2015         

Kaplan is extremely thorough when it comes to SAT prep methods.                                     

SAT Classroom Student, Easter Programme, April 2015

Overall a very helpful course and my SAT score has increased significantly with your help!

 

SAT Classroom Student, Offsite Course, August 2015

I cannot see any other way of teaching SAT prep that would be more beneficial than how Kaplan does it.

 

SAT Classroom Student, Easter Programme, April 2015

The teaching was very thorough and constructive. I really liked the structure to the classes and taking all of the practice tests under exam conditions was great practice.

SAT Classroom Student, Easter Programme, April 2015

My teacher was very clear when explaining a question and made sure that the entire class participated. He was funny, approachable, happy to answer and explain any questions we had and his tips for the essay were particularly helpful. Thank you!
