Princeton Review SAT Online Courses

Mar 3, 2005
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:will prepare you well for the SAT, has many options, good customer service

Cons:can be quite expensive

The Bottom Line: It's very important to make sure that you prepare yourself for the SAT, and taking an online course is one way to get ahead.


Reviewing for the SAT is something that everyone should do, but if you are wanting to go that extra step, and have the funds to do it, Princeton Review provides SAT courses online. This allows you to attain the study materials that could be necessary for you to obtain the high score that you want on the test. Princeton offers 3 different options for students, which are: a live online version, an online version, and an express online version. There is a difference in cost, which could be the deciding factor for a lot of people, but they also differ in their presentation of the information. Hopefully my review of each option will help you decide exactly which will best serve your learning needs.


---------- Express Online Course ----------

--Summation :

A short course that runs 2-3 weeks.

--Provides :

*3 hours of multimedia lessons
*2 full-length New SAT practice tests
*Free Tech Support - 24/7 support is provided by email or phone

--Intent :

This online course is intended for those people who are deciding late in the game that they may need help with their SAT preparation. It is intended to provide just enough information to get you ready for the test, but is not intended for you to be an expert at the types of questions that will be provided. Instead, it gives you a small taste as to what will be ahead of you, and can be used as a tool to teach yourself what the questions will look like on the real test.

--Cost :

$99.00



---------- Online Course ----------

--Summation :

It is an Online course that takes between 40 to 60 hours to complete and lasts about 3 to 7 weeks, depending on how fast you go, and how much time you spend on it.

--Provides :

*20 to 30 hours of highly interactive, self-paced online lessons
*4 full-length practice tests and online drills
*Complete review of all SAT subjects
*Email support from expert instructors
*24/7 real-time support from The Princeton Review Online Coach
*Complete set of print materials, including 11 Practice Tests and The Princeton Review Online Student Workbook

--Intent :

This course is intended to provide the maximum amount of material that a student could need in the online world. It provides many different tests that will help to understand the overall format of the test, and includes available online instructors who can answer questions that you may have about test specifics. This version is intended for those students who learn better from an individual stand-point, and want to teach themselves, or someone else exactly what it will take to do well on the SAT. The printed materials will be shipped to your home if requested, and it provides a lot of other things that the "Express" version does not. There are student discussion groups available to users, and there is someone always online, to give you direct answers to questions that you may have. This can be very helpful if you come across something you don't know, and with all of these experts at your disposal, you will be able to learn many new tricks if you ask the right questions. The only set-back, is that it is much more expensive than the "Express" version.

--Cost :

$399.00



---------- Live Online Course ----------

--Summation :

This is a complete test preparation, with live instructors teaching live classes. It is intended to have the same setting as the SAT itself will, and provides live teaching of tricks, methods, and review for the material you will see on the real SAT.

--Provides :

*20-30 hours of highly interactive self-paced online lessons
*8 real-time online class sessions led by an instructor
*4 full-length practice tests
*Complete review of all SAT subjects
*Email support from expert instructors
*24/7 real-time support from The Princeton Review Online Coach
*Complete set of print materials, including 11 Practice Tests and The Princeton Review Online Student Workbook
*Complimentary headset for use during real-time LiveOnline class sessions

--Intent :

This online class comes with all the bells and whistles that money can buy. If you want to ensure that you do well on the test, then this is the best way to go, but it does have the draw-back of being very expensive. If money is not an issue though, then this is the way to go, because it provides many useful tools that are necessary during the SAT itself. With real-time interaction, you are learning from an expert in the field with other students, and it gives you the ability to ask questions on the spot if there is something that you don't understand. The feedback is personalized to each person, and the bonus is that you are able to do this all without leaving the comfort of your home. This class is best suited for those people who want to plan far in advance their studying for the SAT, and it is engineered so that when your test time comes around, you are an expert at taking the SAT.

--Cost :

$699.00


***Final Review of the Princeton Review SAT Online Courses***

The thing to keep in mind with this service, just like with any other online product, is that you can feel slightly separated from your instructor, or from the material. Some people have a hard time not being taught this information in a one-on-one personal setting, so this would really not be the thing for them to enroll in. For everyone else, it the comes down to how best you learn your material. If you are a better learner when teaching yourself, then the online version will work great for you, and if you are better when taught by someone else you may want to upgrade to the Live version. Either way that you go, just keep in mind that it is really an expensive endeavor, but that it could be a simple investment that will pay off with a higher SAT score.

The added bonus that the Online and LiveOnline versions of this test provides, is that Princeton Review actually guarantees the service that they are providing. They put in writing that you will get at least a 200 point increase in your total scores, based on the information and education you receive from their course. With that being said, you think less about the money involved, and more about the test itself. With Princeton, they have lessons that are both interactive, and interesting, meaning you are much more likely to want to pay attention. I highly recommend the Princeton Review SAT Online Courses to anyone who is looking to increase their scores, and come away with a great knowledge of everything about the test. Princeton knows the ins and outs of the test, and they are here to help students succeed.
