Inspirica’s SAT Boot Camp is a crash course in the essentials of taking the SAT, taught live and online by the most experienced test-prep tutors in the business. Whether you’re preparing for your first test date or looking to raise your score after a couple of previous attempts, we’ll show you exactly how to spot and exploit the predictability in every area of the test.
Each week, we’ll focus on a single section of the test, teaching you strategies designed by our test experts to meet the unique challenges of that section. Over the course of three 60-minute sessions, we’ll identify the tendencies of the test-writers, teach you tactics that take advantage of their predictability, and develop a plan of attack that with practice will allow you to achieve your best possible score on test day.
Classes are scheduled with flexibility in mind. Because the course runs on a continuous basis, with each of the test’s four sections repeated every four weeks, you can sign up whenever you like and complete the course at whatever pace works best for you. Attend all three classes each week and you’ll wrap things up in a single month; attend one class each week and you’ll complete the course in three months. And if the schedule of live sessions doesn’t work for you at any point, you’ll have access to a complete library of class recordings for as long as your membership in the course is active, so you can make up any sessions you miss at whatever times are most convenient for you.
All course materials are provided through this site, including official tests, workbooks, study guides, and access to the live lecture hall and the video archive. Homework is assigned at the end of each session so you can practice with a purpose, and office hours are available each week so that you can review the work you’ve done with your instructor.
So whether you’re aiming for a perfect score or just looking for a couple of points of improvement, sign up and begin moving your score today
