ACT, (P)SAT, PreACT, HSPT, EXPLORE, State Assessment Exams, Duke University Talent Search, GED, GRE, MCAT, ASVAB, LSAT, Law Boards ...

Time: 8 two-hour sessions. Students will have 2 hours of workbook pages & practice tests for every 1 hour of instruction. (plus AceReader time)

Speed reading is a special focus.

Reading too slowly prevents many students from completing tests and getting their best scores.
