- You'll receive complete training in writing the optional essay for the ACT or the SAT--and you'll also learn why writing these essays is the single LEAST important part of your admissions campaign (yes, even if your school tells you to submit the essay score from one of these tests).
- You'll see sample walkthrough videos of official multiple-choice questions from the SAT and the ACT, so you can see how much the ideal approach to these questions differs from the types of approaches that get rewarded in school.

Your Instructor: International Private Tutor and Best-Selling Test Prep Author Mike Barrett
Mike Barrett is a test-prep expert who has been tutoring people for standardized tests ever since he was in high school. His approach to tests like the SAT, PSAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT is unique in that it is based on his strategic analysis of the role of testing in education and in admissions, rather than on a superficial appraisal of the supposed "subject-matter" of an individual test. In other words, while most test-prep courses will teach students to memorize a list of vocabulary words for the GRE, for example, Barrett explains to students how top-scoring GRE-takers minimize the importance of vocabulary by exploiting certain weaknesses inherent in the process of standardization itself.
Barrett employs a variety of formats to work with students: He tutors over the phone and in person, he lectures to large groups, he holds small seminars, he sells online video courses, he publishes books, and he offers training materials through his blog and through YouTube.
Tens of thousands of students have used Mike Barrett's ideas to improve their performance on standardized tests. Because of the sheer volume and variety of feedback he has received from these tutoring students, Barrett has been able to refine his approach to testing—and tutoring—in a way that sets his methods apart from those of other test-prep resources.
