Aditya S., SAT Summer Programme

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 feedback from me!

 

SAT Classroom Student, October 2016         

There are so many resources available at your hands once you sign up. Not only do you have your instructor, they also help you work through the book and you have loads of online resources.

SAT Classroom Course Student, October 2016

Kaplan was very helpful in not only helping me understand the material better but also in giving useful tips and methods on how to answer the questions efficiently.

SAT Live Online Student, September 2016

Prep through Kaplan puts you at a higher advantage than most because you tackle the core topics that you'll see on the test. The instructors are also there for you.

SAT Self-Paced Student, October 2016

I have already recommended this course to at least three or four people because of the great study services.

 

SAT Classroom Course Student, September 2016

I feel as though my instructor put a lot of time and effort behind each and every one of his lesson plans. He was thorough with his advice to help everyone in the class improve on the SAT.

 

SAT Live Online Student, September 2016

The Kaplan methods were incredibly helpful since they kept every question organised. I learned a lot more than I would have if I had tried to study on my own. The practice tests really created an accurate test setting and gave instant feedback with detailed answers and explanations. I find myself unconsciously using the Kaplan methods at school, and they have helped me achieve better academic levels in many subjects.

 

SAT Classroom Student, January 2018

Really helpful course and also made more enjoyable by staff. Timings appropriate not having to get up extremely early or get home very late.
