Knowledge Is Power

No matter what test you’re preparing for, the first step in any successful prep program is understanding the rules of the game. Or, as a wise man (Kendrick Lamar? Pretty sure it was Kendrick) once said, “Know your enemy.”

Fortunately, we’ve been around the block a few times, so we know a few things — almost 40 years’ worth of things, in fact. And because you’re our favorite, we want you to be able to know things, too. So if you have questions about the test, from scoring to accommodations to fundamental strategies, you can find the answers here. And if you don’t see the information you’re looking for, let us know at help@inspirica.com and we’ll fill in the gap just as soon as we can.
