PSAT/SAT/ACT Preparation

PSAT/SAT/SAT Subject Test/ACT preparation courses are offered by Bespoke Education in Paris and at times at ASP during the school year. Although ASP has opted to work in coordination with Bespoke, there are many other valid, reliable sources of preparation available for students. There are numerous commercial preparation services one can choose from worldwide. Many prefer to buy one of the practice books on the market which contain practice tests and strategic advice. Others opt to use an online prep format. Some students work better with individual tutors.

Students should select the form of test preparation which corresponds best to their individual needs and family resources. Regardless of the type of preparation, it is one’s level of personal commitment and serious investment in advancing which are the key factors in successful test preparation.

ASP subscribes to SHMOOP, an interactive online test prep tool for PSAT, SAT, SATII, ACT and many AP exams. See our librarian for log-in information. Free for ASP students!
