PSAT/SAT Prep Classes--Which One?

<p>My son is going into 11th grade in the Fall. I understand in October he will be taking the PSAT test. He has taken the free Princeton Review SAT and ACT and scored 650-600-600 and 28 on his ACT.</p>

<p>What are your collective thoughts on SAT prep classes? If so, which one? If not, what do you recommend in the way of preparation?</p>

<p>Thanks in advance for your guidance.</p>

<p>Most on this forum would recommend self-prep with the College Board Blue Book and perhaps college confidential as a supplement. <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/sat-preparation/955109-silverturtles-guide-sat-admissions-success.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/sat-preparation/955109-silverturtles-guide-sat-admissions-success.html&lt;/a> is pretty good.</p>

<p>I would recommend both the self-prep as well as the actual course, especially if money is not a problem.</p>

<p>test masters is good also</p>

<p>^ Didn't you just post a thread yesterday asking whether Test Masters is good? :)</p>

<p>OP, I am generally opposed to prep classes.</p>

<p>^Listen to the SAT guru. Read the stickies (xiggi + silverturtle).</p>

<p>Assuming that your son is motivated, he doesn't need SAT prep classes. Spend that money on the BB + CB online course.</p>

<p>lol haha sliverturtle i surely did(: but alot of people get really good results from there lol and i have some friends that are taking the course</p>
