A collection of guides to the college application process, personal statements & essays, entrance tests, and financial aid.

Shmoop College Readiness

http://www.shmoop.com/college-readiness/
  • Individualized Dashboards — Track study progress like the Indian at the end of Butch Cassidy: "Who is that guy?"
  • Diagnostic Tests — Get the lowdown on how you'll do on the big day (turn your head and cough).
  • Reporting — Did you have a clue? Do well? Poorly? We didn't need to call Lois Lane to get the real scoop.
  • Drills — 1,000s of practice problems for every skill you'll need sponsored by Black & Decker and 4 out of 5 dentists.
  • Full-Length Practice Exams — The real deal. Full contact test taking for a full contact world.
  • Answer Explanations — Missed a few? Find out why. Our team of (union) elves works round the clock so you don't have to.
There are fees for these services, but they are very reasonable.
