SAT prep programs and collegeboard tests

<p>I am looking into two companies for some private tutoring for the SAT's. One company says they use collegeboard tests and the other company does not. I asked the company that doesn't use the collegeboard tests why not - and they said that it is because the company that does use the actual collegeboard tests is probably using older versions of the tests and they change over the years. Does anyone know anything about this?</p>

<p>When it comes time to taking sample tests and tracking progress best is to use the CB tests. If the CB tests are reasonably recent (i.e. within the last 5 years or so) they will serve these goals extremely well. None CB tests can serve as practice tests but take care not to draw deep conclusions about your likely score from your results on such tests.</p>
