"I took the PSAT during my sophomore and junior years," says Brandon Zhang, an Economics major at UC Berkeley. "It really helped me prepare for the real SAT, and my real score came pretty close to my PSAT score."
Brightstorm's PSAT prep includes tutorial videos about topics ranging from general PSAT information to specific PSAT test-taking strategies. The online PSAT package also comes with flashcards, quizzes, printable practice material, and a practice test complete with a personalized score analysis.
"Many students overlook the PSAT because they think it's not nearly as important as the SAT," says Bumsoo Kim, CEO of Brightstorm. "But it's quite the contrary. The PSAT is made by the same guys who make the SAT, so it's the perfect practice test. By prepping for the PSAT and seeing how you scored afterwards, you'll know exactly what areas you need to brush up on when the real deal comes around. Plus, if you score well enough, you get some scholarship money."
