Students preparing for their SAT and ACT exams are not without support, which includes eKnowledge, a leading provider of interactive learning products and services. The company has been making test preparations a bit easier and much more affordable for students nationwide thanks to its donation project.
For the past nine years eKnowledge has donated more than 200,000 SAT and ACT PowerPrep Programs with a value of nearly $50 million at no profit to the company claiming to represent one of the largest private donations to families in U.S. history.
According to eKnowledge officials, high school students, military members (active, retired, reserve, veterans) and their families are again eligible to order the SAT and ACT PowerPrep Programs for no more than the cost of delivery.
“The program provides review materials for SAT ACT examinations, which, of course is a huge help for students,” said eKnowledge Spokesperson Darren Accarde. “Students select the training they need and can study at their own pace.”
Accarde emphasized that the SAT or ACT PowerPrep Program is available online (Cloud version), DVD and or books, providing 11 hours of video instruction as well as more than 3,000 files of supplemental test prep material, thousands of interactive diagnostic tools, sample questions, practice tests and graphic teaching illustrations.
With the eKnowledge sponsorship covering the complete $250 purchase price for the SAT or ACT Test Prep Program, the DVD student fee is then $24 covering the cost of materials, support and shipping. The online Cloud student fee is $19.99 for student support and streaming.
Each SAT or ACT PowerPrep Program has a one-year license from the day the product is ordered.
With most students taking SAT/ACT during their junior or senior year of high school and at least half of all students take the SAT twice—in the spring as a junior and in the fall as a senior— eKnowledge program’s affordability is a welcome addition.
“This is a God send,” said Doretta Richardson. “As a parent I want my child to succeed as much as humanly possible in life. Education can be quite expensive, so any opportunity to possibly give him an opportunity or advantage to do well is a win-win to me. Thank you.”
Jason Neblett, who credits the PowerPrep Program for his chance to pursue college and possibly becoming an officer in the U.S. Air Force added, “Best deal I’ve ever seen for SAT/ACT prep. I love and appreciate this.”
