According to a study done by Consumer Reports, many online test prep sites
had grammatical errors, technical glitches, and aggressive advertising tactics. In many cases, it was hard to tell the difference between advertising and educational content. Students using the test prep sites reported receiving eMails from banks, military recruiters, or offers of financial aid or study aid.Apparently, free test prep site Number2.com did particularly well against its pay competitors. It offers preparation for the SAT, ACT, and GRE tests. Might be worth checking out for any worried parents or students out there, who are still awaiting their turn in the college admissions game.
