Here’s a secret a lot of people seem to have forgotten: Books work. And SAT and ACT test prep books work too. Why? How you read, and on what, impacts your memory retention. Studies have shown that human readers remember things better on “analog” pages… and even more importantly, they mistakenly believe they THINK they are better at understanding information they’re read on digital sources. Ouch!
That’s not to say that we don’t love online test prep like Khan Academy and our partner Higher Scores Test Prep. They’re great as well, and should be part of your test prep repertoire. But don’t make them the only way you study for the SAT and the ACT test. Vary it up!
