This course is for the previous generation of the SAT. It has not been updated for the digital SAT.

So why is it still available?

I'm currently selling my old SAT course for $50 off the normal price. Then, when the course is updated and the price goes back to normal, you'll still have unlimited lifetime access to the new, fully updated course, without having to pay the full price.

  • The updated course will include complete training videos for every aspect of the digital SAT, and thorough video walkthroughs for every question in linear SAT Practice Test #5 from the College Board.
  • I can't say exactly when the course will be finished, because my focus is on getting the course done right, and it's not really possible to predict precisely how much time that will take—but I'm aiming for the end of the summer.
  • There is still some value in applying the training from the older course to the current digital SAT. Much of the math on the new test is very similar to the math in the previous SAT, and the digital SAT still requires the same kind of careful reading that was necessary for the previous SAT. SAT Math still depends on relatively basic math presented in unusual ways, and SAT Reading still depends on direct restatement and demonstration of provided text.
  • Signing up at the discounted price means you still get full unlimited lifetime access to the ACT course as well, as described below.

If you're interested in signing up now for less than half the normal price of $97, just use the coupon code EARLYBIRD. Of course, if you prefer to wait until the course is updated and then pay the full price, you're welcome to do that—I'll make a big announcement when that happens.

Why is this course better?

  • You'll be able to go through this whole course in a matter of days, and master it in a matter of weeks. It's the easiest, most effective SAT method I've ever seen or heard of.
  • You get access immediately—literally just a few minutes from now—and retain unlimited lifetime access for your entire household for a single one-time payment.
  • You can take this course at your own pace, in your own home, on your own time. You don't have to get up early to drive across town to a testing center, or waste your evenings taking boring, inefficient classes in some hotel meeting room somewhere.
  • You get fifteen training videos covering every single aspect of the SAT, including general SAT training and specific information targeting all the different sections and question types.
  • Below every training video is a link to a downloadable, printable PDF "cheatsheet" with a summary of ideas from that video for easy review.
  • My course is laid out in an easy to use, intuitive format so you can get the most out of every minute you spend studying.
  • Each of my training videos includes discussion of real SAT sample questions showing my strategies in action. But that's just the beginning . . . because my course also includes a series of videos of me talking through an entire real SAT practice test (Practice Test #5 from the College Board), question by question. You can literally watch me talk through and solve an entire test, and see my strategies at work on real questions. In many cases, I'll answer the questions using more than one approach, so you can learn which one works best for you.
  • Many people have told me that these 154 videos alone (one per question) are the most helpful SAT training they've ever done. With these videos you'll be able to see how the SAT really does just use the same basic concepts and ideas over and over and over (and over and over...) again. You NEED to understand this crucial aspect of the SAT, even though just about every test prep 'authority' ignores it.
  • This course and your real SAT practice questions are literally everything you need to get ready for the test—once you've got them, all you need to worry about is studying the methods and practicing them intelligently.
  • Do you have my SAT Prep Black Book, Second Edition? If so, don't worry—this course doesn't contain any "secret techniques" that aren't in the Black Book. The book and the course each contain my entire approach to the SAT, just in different formats. So if you have the Black Book and you're happy with it, and you're not interested in the video format, then you don't need to buy this course for any extra strategies or information. Think of this course as a faithful movie adaptation of the Black Book.
  • This course also comes with my complete ACT video course as well! So if you or anyone in your household decides to take the ACT at any point, you're covered for that as well.
  • And, of course, should you decide that you are unsatisfied with this product, just say the word within 30 days of your purchase and you'll get a full refund, no questions asked—the only thing you have to lose is all the stress and worry of preparing for the SAT. You can simply email your refund request to me and you'll be taken care of. (Try doing that with a traditional test prep company...)

Your Instructor: International Private Tutor and Best-Selling Test Prep Author Mike Barrett

Mike Barrett
Mike Barrett

Barrett is the co-author of the top-selling indie SAT and ACT books on Amazon.

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.

How is this course different from the SAT Prep Black Book, Second Edition?
The concepts in this course are the same as those taught in the Black Book. We like to say that the video course is like a faithful movie adaptation of the Black Book. If you're already seeing the improvement you want from the Black Book, then you don't necessarily need to view these videos. On the other hand, if you prefer your SAT training in a video format, and/or if you'd like to see walkthrough videos of an entire real SAT from the College Board that's not covered in the Black Book, then these videos might be a good choice for you.
