What determines how much your score will increase

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Proven, right framework

Cons:Expensive, results vary for different people in different situations.

The Princeton Review CAN raise your score more than any other test prep company.

However there are four factors that will determine how much your score will increase with the Princeton Review.
1. Your starting Score- the lower it is, the easier it is to raise your score
2. Number of Times SAT has been Taken- The more you take the SAT, the higher your score will rise, however, by less and less each time.
3. Amount of Work Outside of Class- You will raise your score simply by showing up to the Princeton Review. However, there is no way way to have a huge jump in your score unless you spend significant time studying on your own. It has been shown that those students who pay for the course with their own money have higher increases.
4. Words!- Simply by memorizing vocabulary words, your verbal score will increase.

I raised my score 290 points after taking Princeton Review. However, I studied a ton on my own and started out with a score below 900.

The Princeton Review is extremely expensive (more than $700). A student must decide if the rewards are great enough to spend this much money. However, if they do, the Princeton Review is the best course around.
