Mountain View, Calif. - March 29, 2011 – Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com)
, a digital curriculum and test prep company that aims to suck less of the joy out of learning, today announced the arrival of its two newest Online Test Prep Courses: AP Psychology and AP Macroeconomics. Each course is available on Shmoop’s website for individual purchase at $12.95 per student and also available via ludicrously discounted Site Licenses for districts, schools, and libraries.
In a stunning move, Shmoop CEO Ellen Siminoff also unveiled her company’s “Dullsville:
Population Zero” plan. “Dullsville was built on the textbook industry’s inefficient, outmoded 20th century thinking,” said Siminoff. “In the 21st century, no student, teacher, or district administrator should have to live, work, or study anywhere in the County of Yawn.”Shmoop Offers Online AP Exam Prep with More Pep
